For those who do not know what an Icyball is:
I would like to ask for help with the engineering calculations. Something very basic, like this:
We start with (say) 4lbs of water and 3 lbs ammonia in the hot ball at ambient pressure and temperature.
We apply X BTUs to the hot ball and (ideally) we end up with 4 lbs of water at 230ºF in the hot side, 3 lbs ammonia at 80ºF on the cold side and the pressure at P PSIA. Or maybe less than all the ammonia goes to the cold side, I suppose.
We now insert the cold ball in an enclosure at (say) 10ºF which provides X BTUs to the cold ball until the hot ball had come down to room temperature...
I'm just trying to grasp the basics here as I am not familiar with absorption refrigeration or with the thermodynamics of water-ammonia mixtures.
Guidance from the experts will be greatly appreciated.
