Example text

Detectors may need to be fitted to warn against this condition. 6 Strainers. Lubrication Incoming gas may contain particles of dirt from within the circuit, especially on a new system. Suction strainers or traps are provided to catch such dirt and will be readily accessible for cleaning on the larger machines. All but the smallest compressors will have a strainer or filter in the lubricating oil circuit. Strainers within the sump are commonly of the self-cleaning slot disc type. Larger machines may also have a filter of the fabric throwaway type, as in automobile practice.

When the cylinder pressure is higher than that in the discharge pipe, the discharge valve opens and the compressed gas passes to the condenser. 1 Reciprocating compressor. (a) Suction stroke. 2 and also Chapter 2, for theoretical and practical cycles on the Mollier chart and for volumetric efficiency). 2 pr 0 m Pe Co Re-expansion Pressure Pc Inlet Volume Reciprocating compressor, indicator diagram The first commercial piston compressors were built in the middle of the last century, and evolved from the steam engines which provided the prime mover.

Typical cases are batteries on small boats and mobile homes, where these do not have a mains voltage alternator. It is also possible to obtain such a supply from a bank of solar cells. c. motor, or by vibrating solenoids. c. c. 9 Hermetic drives The possible slight leakage of refrigerant through a shaft gland may be acceptable with a large system but would lead to early malfunction of a small circuit. The wide use of small refrigeration systems has led to the evolution of methods of avoiding shaft seals, provided that the working fluid is compatible with the materials of electric motors and has a high dielectric strength.
