COMPARISON BETWEEN VAPOUR ABSORPTION AND VAPOUR ABSORPTION COMPRESSION REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS

N O 1 2 3 4 5

PARTICULARS Type of Energy Supplied Energy Supply Wear & Tear Performance at Part Loads Size of Condenser Evaporator Pressure

VAPOUR ABSORPTION SYSTEM Mainly heat – low grade energy High (about 150% of refrigerating effect) Less System not affected by load variations Small The capacity of the system is controlled by adjusting the steam or generator temperature even if the evaporator pressure falls No chance as there is no compressor or any reciprocating component to cause leakage Much less comparatively More bulky for small units and much more compact and less bulky for large capacity comparatively Less costly Difficult Liquid traces of refrigerant present in piping at the exit of evaporator constitute no danger Can also be used at remote places as it can work even with a simple kerosene lamp (of course in small capacities)

VAPOUR COMPRESSION SYSTEM Mechanical – a high grade energy Low – (50 to 25% of refrigerating effect) More Poor Large The capacity of the system decreases rapidly with the reduced evaporator pressure More chances of leakage of refrigerant More Less bulky for small units but more bulky for large capacity units Much more costly comparatively Simple Liquid traces in suction line may damage the compressor Used where high grade energy is available
