ABSTRACT
15141709n3blIn the present study, the ice slurry refrigeration system with pre-cooling heat exchanger (ISSH) is studied experimentally to achieve the system performance, ice crystal formation time and the temperature of ice crystal formation. The operating parameters considered in this paper include the concentration of salt solution, suction pressure, discharge pressure and Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). The result shows that the temperature of critical time of ice crystal formation decreases with the increasing concentration of salt solution and that the ice crystal formation time increases with the increasing concentration of salt solution. In the same concentration of salt solution, the ice crystal formation temperature of ISSH is lower than that of basic ice slurry refrigeration system (BISS), and the ice crystal formation time of ISSH is shorter than that of BISS. On the whole, the EER of ice slurry refrigeration system with pre-cooling heat exchanger is higher than that of basic ice slurry refrigeration system.
