The main parameters of the analysed coldstore are summarized in the table 1. Details about the event and the call for abstracts will be announced at the conference website. Gustav Lorentzen was a professor at , and. Different options available today were compared with a number of analysis made, and preferable options were indicated. The article indicates that when defrost is performed in an optimal way could save up to 5%of the plant energy consumption or even more. This valve train typically includes stop valves, filter, a solenoid valve, a regulating valve, a check valve and a final stop valve. The conference welcomes research subjects covering fundamental studies such as thermodynamic properties or heat and mass transfer , system developments such as heat pumps, chillers refrigerators , and their applications.

What could be important to consider here, is the amount of liquid that is fed to the evaporator. It eventually needs to be removed during the cooling process. This line needs to have an automatic shut off valve and a stop valve. Optimized defrost system configuration The article made an overview of different control possibilities of hot gas defrost systems. In case some of the worst case and still not rare examples are taken, the overall potential looks even bigger.

However they indicate that not optimal hot gas defrost could not only create problems with the equipment, but also result in a power consumption increase. Motorized valves require speed adjustment, but have no need for an additional hot gas line to power them. Meanwhile, the Japanese corporation had familiarized itself with Lorentzen's in 1993, and was evaluating the concept as a basis for a new air-condition application in cars. It is out of the scope of this article to find an optimal ice thickness. After that the second solenoid opens and the main defrost starts. As discussed, the float valves are expected to be the most efficient controls for the hot gas defrost.

In most cases, it would be also the most cost effective way when compared to e. What happens in reality when the defrost is finished earlier, is that the efficiency of defrost significantly drops. The benefit of the motorized valves in hot gas defrost lines is that they make it possible to have an intelligent hot gas control. Ice thickness is one of the parameters that has a big influence on the defrost efficiency. A lot of failures found on valves and controls used around evaporators may be attributed to wrong valve configuration and or settings. Finally, the time used for defrost is not used for cooling. As in case of ammonia systems, a general increase of the condensing pressure on main compressors is not recommendable.

This vapour needs to be recompressed, and it also increases the requirement for the hot gas feed to the evaporator. Further information about the conference is available at:. The frost needs to be melted, or it will severely impact the performance of an aircooler, and eventually could totally block the air flow. This article focuses on valves and controls configurations that could be applied for such systems as well as the ways to optimize the process. And that is not considering the worst systems, with higher condensing temperatures to keep the defrost temperatures high.

Further practical tests to confirm theoretical conclusions were started. The comparison is made with common systems used today. Second, the suction valve will be closed, evaporator fans will be stopped, the hot gas solenoid valve will be opened and the feed of the evaporator with the hot gas starts. A series of communications between Lorentzen and followed and the result of the collaboration between Lorentzen and Denso was a fundamental step in the innovation of which was commercialized in 2000s. Control valves used in wet return lines are solenoid valves, gas powered solenoid valves both of them need to have a bypass valves to avoid liquid hammering after defrost , 2 step gas powered solenoid valves as well as motorized valves and motorized ball valves. This also occurs if the hot gas supply lines contains pockets of condensed liquid being propelled by the supplied hot gas pressure, and gas pockets to implode. Firstly, the necessary energy for melting the ice and removing the water has been calculated.

Kyoto is the center of the traditional Japanese culture and Buddhism, as well as home of the production of fine textiles and other Japanese products. One of them is steam traps, which are coming from other industries, and can manage high pressures. That could be relevant in those cases, when the defrost is not done based on timing, but rather on other parameters, such as surface temperature control. Important Dates -- Paper Submission -- Abstract Submission Deadline: 20 Jan. Pulse width modulation liquid feed The most common way to feed hot gas in an evaporator, is with a conventional solenoid valve.

There are a few studies targeting the understanding and improvement of hot gas efficiency of refrigeration systems. A popular misconception is that the higher the defrost temperature, the better. Another point, which is especially critical for the ball valves, is that the opening speed must be adjusted to a relatively low level. That may include not only slow opening, but slow or adjusted closing as well. He developed the modern in 1988-1991. When combined, those factors could be quite dangerous and even destructive.

In ammonia systems, this control method has not been widely applied yet. Hot gas feed line with double solenoid valve There is a wider variety in the regulation devices, used in condensate lines of evaporators with hot gas defrost. The main conclusion of this analysis is that if defrost is made in an optimal way, potential energy savings on the level of 5% or more of the total energy consumption of the system could be realized. There are several negative implications associated with hot gas defrost. The second stage opens automatically when the pressure difference over the valve drops below certain value.
