I have a refrigeration project and I don't know anything.
I need to ask someone who knows a few questions. The presentation is due one Friday.
Let's say I found the required load and it is = 40 kW
Cold store condition = 2 degree C
Product is apples
Dry bulb temp = 36 degree C
How do I choose:
2. Evaporating temperature
3. Refrigerant temperature (or is it the same as 2.)
4. Condensing temperature
5. Compressor power
6. Different temperature differences in the cycle
7. Equipment selection
Keep in mind this is a small college project. The teacher obviously doesn't know anything, so I'll accept an help.
Moved to Refrigeration and Ice Making forum
Sounds like you're wasting your parents tuition money.

I would open some books like my copeland manual and to some research, why should we do your Homework for you?
Still learning opinions welcome.
No. I'm actually reading two books but I'm not understanding everything. I don't need you to make my homework, I need a few hints if I'm allowed to call them so. I need catalogs for equipment selection, there is none in my books and the teacher haven't provided any.

Thanks for nothing
I think it would be interesting to how you got that big number and can´t find a refrigerant type

So, now tell us something, are you a student at a college studying HVAC, is this a hypothetical question or do you really have a load of apples that need to be refrigerated?
When you did your load calc, you had to have a box temp. Your refrigerant should not have the compressor operating in a vacumm to attain that temp.
Virtually all manufacturers have catologs online that you can download. And see what their units BTU capacities are at the evaporator temp you need.
A single evaporator doesn't work in every appliaction.
Do you know if your box temp requires a defrost cycle.
Did you do your load calc based on an hour. Or based on a 24 hour day.
how can you ask a question about system design and not know the bare bone basics?
You are trying to run before you can walk.
and you come off as an ignorant prick.
Heatcraft refrigeration has an excellent manual for load calculation and equipment selection:
Choosing which refrigerant to use calls for a bit of knowledge of economics, environmental concerns and of course...experience. I suggest going with R404A as it's likely the best all around refrigerants for commercial refrigeration systems available today.
If you need to select specific equipment, Heatcraft has all the catalogs you'll need. Here's a condensed catalog form Bohn (one of Heatcraft's product lines):
Good luck on your project.
like ice said theres so many sites out there that can get you very close to what you are looking for also emerson has an option called Product selection software check it out also good luck
Mastic its whats for dinner!
Just about every equipment manufacturer has the info you need be it software or worksheets go to their website. Most the stuff is free to download.. You should spend your time at their sites and you will learn a great deal without having to ask anyone and put up with abuse for wanting the answers given to you. No one is really doing you any favors by giving the answers. Learning is a process that happens with effort and desire......usually in equal measures....good luck
