AbstractThe capillary tube performance for (R134a) is experimentally investigated. The experimental setup is a real vapor compression refrigeration system. All properties of the refrigeration system are measured for various mass flow rate from (13 – 23 kg/hr) and capillary tube coil number (0-4) with fixed length (150 cm) and capillary diameter (2.5mm).
The results showed that the theoretical compression power increases by (65.8 %) as the condenser temperature increases by (2.71%), also the theoretical compression power decreases by (10.3 %) as the capillary tube coil number increases.
The study shows also that the cooling capacity increases by (65.3%) as the evaporator temperature increases by (8.4 %), and the cooling capacity increases by (1.6%)as the capillary tube coil number increases in the range (0-4).
The coefficient of performance decreases by (43.4 %), as the mass flow rate increases by (76.9%), also the coefficient of performance increases by (13.51 %) as the capillary tube coil number increases in the range (0-4).
Through this study, it was found that the best coil number in refrigeration cycle at the lowest mass flow rate (13 Kg/hr) and at high mass flow rate (23 Kg/hr) is (coil number = 4), this will give the highest performance, cooling capacity and lowest theoretical compression power.
An experimental relationship has been adopted between the coefficients of performance (COP) against .
