Evaluation of Refrigerant Potentials

The thermal expertise of CTS includes many various fluids as refrigerants for use in low, medium, and high temperature applications. Naturally occurring refrigerants such as ammonia, carbon dioxide, isobutane, and propane have been used and studied extensively. Various cycle improvement options and component modifications were evaluated to take advantage of specific thermodynamic or thermophysical properties. In addition, a variety of man-made (synthetic) refrigerants were evaluated as environmentally-friendly alternatives (low-GWP refrigerant candidates).
