Heat load in Refrigeration system
The person involved in heat transfer calculations needs accurately information to predictthe heat load on a refrigerated system. The more complete the information, the better thecalculation. Good calculations are the first step in assuring adequate selection inrefrigeration equipment for the project.
Design ambient temperatures
This would be the ambient surrounding the box necessary for the load calculations.Another ambient to consider is the one surrounding the condensing unit, which willaffect equipment selection.
Storage Temperature and Humidity Requirements
Refrigeration equipment by its nature is a dehumidification process. To minimize thedrying effect of the refrigeration equipment, by selecting the appropriate temperaturedifference (T.D.) between the saturated suction temperature of the evaporator and theroom air. The T.D. selected approximates the desired relative humidity.
Temperature Difference in Refrigeration Space
The preservation of food and other products in optimum condition by refrigerationdepends not only upon the temperature of the refrigerated space but also upon thehumidity of the space. When relative humidity in the refrigerated space is too high, thegrowth of mold, fungus, and bacteria is encouraged. Mold and slime conditions mayoccur particularly on meats that are in a refrigerated space with higher than 95% relative
