Why does an air conditioning or refrigeration system lose efficiency over time? What is oil fouling? Find out from this application note.
HVAC systems may be specified by tons. This does not refer to the mass of the unit! Read this note to find out what that means.
These terms define the performance of air conditioning systems. This application note defines these terms and explains how you can use them to asses the efficiency of your air conditioning system.
The psychrometric chart graphically shows the relationship between wet bulb temperature, dry bulb temperature, relative humidity, dew point, and enthalpy. Read this note to learn how to read the chart.
If you want to calculate the amount of heat that an air conditioning system is absorbing, you need to measure the enthalpy of the air. If you have the system treated with SRA, you can measure the enthalpy after treatment. This application note explains what is meant by enthalpy, how to measure it, and how to calculate a gain in efficiency.
This helps you to understand the effect on maintenance after treatment of an air conditioning system with SRA. In practice, most air conditioning systems or refrigeration systems operate less hard than before treatment. This makes them last longer and require less maintenance.
When we treat an air conditioning or refrigeration system with SRA, the oil that used to be stuck to the pipes is returned for use by the compressor. This application note describes the process in more detail.
We are often asked questions about power and energy such as how much energy our LFC uses, how much power the SRA can save, or what is meant by a gain in efficiency. Often the questioner doesn’t understand our answer. This application note defines each of these attributes and should make the answers clearer.
