Abstract

This work provides an overview of air type evaporators, specifically focusing on coil type evaporators. It introduces a simplified method for calculating the required heat transfer area of a finned evaporator based on specified thermal and flow parameters, considering air and R134a refrigerant, as well as given design parameters. The study analyzes the influence of individual parameters on the heat transfer surface, using a base example as reference. Furthermore, it examines how changes in various system parameters affect the heat transfer surface. Such parameter analysis can aid in designing new heat exchangers and optimizing existing evaporators.
