Open Air Refrigeration Cycle

Open Air Refrigeration Cycle

In an open air refrigeration cycle, the air is directly led to the space to be cooled allowed to circulate through the cooler and then returned to the compressor to start another cycle. Since the air is supplied to the refrigerator at atmospheric pressure, therefore, volume of air handled by the compressor and expander is large. Thus the size of compressor and expander should be large. Another disadvantage of the open cycle system is that the moisture is regularly carried away by the air circulated through the cooled space. This leads to the formation of frost at the end of expansion process and clog the line. Thus in an open cycle system. a drier should be used.
