Thermoacoustic Refrigerators use acoustic power for generating cold temperatures.

Development of refrigerators based on thermoacoustic technology is a novel solution to the present day need of cooling, without causing environmental hazards. With added advantages like minimal moving parts and absence of CFC refrigerants, these devices can attain very low temperatures maintaining a compact size. The present work describes an in-depth theoretical analysis of standing wave thermoacoustic refrigerators. This consists of detailed parametric studies, transient state analysis and a design using available simulation software. Design and construction of a thermoacoustic refrigerator using a commercially available electro-dynamic motor is also presented.
