Abstract

The performance of the absorption refrigerator was studied experimentally using a simple single effect system. LiBr-H2O-1,4-dioxane was used as a working fluid. The freezing point of the refrigerant H2O-1,4- dioxane equals to -6°C. Therefore, the absorption refrigerator could manufacture the brine at temperature below the freezing point of water, 0°C. Additionally, it was proved that the heat source temperature of only 92°C could condense the solution to 63%, which can manufacture the cold brine at 4°C. Therefore, if the present solution is used as the working fluid, a low temperature waste heat of less than 100°C can be used to manufacture the cold brine for an air-conditioner.
