Abstract :

In developing countries (like in India) the grid electricity is unavailable or available for few hours. So, preservation of vaccine in such areas become important and to solve this problem an attempt was made to design and develop the efficient SPV powered vapor compression refrigeration system. Eco-friendly refrigerant R-134a was selected. The nano-refrigerant (R-134a+Al2O3) was also used in this SPV operated refrigeration system to increase its performance and the results obtained are compared with the refrigerant R-134a. The per cent drop in the temperature of evaporator and condenser section of all various tests by using nano-refrigerant (R-134a+Al2O3) was observed to be 6.54 to 4.19, respectively. Average value of COP obtained varies from 2.14 to 2.10 and 2.36 to 2.31 by using refrigerant R-134a and nano-refrigerant (R-134a+Al2O3) in half load and full load, respectively. The per cent increase in the value of COP and per cent saving in the power consumption of compressor varies from 10.28 to 10.00 and to respectively, during various test conditions using nano-refrigerant (R-134a+Al2O3) in place of refrigerant R-134a.
