The compressor is the most core part for a chiller and cold room refrigeration unit. But how to select the right compressor type and model for your cold room project? 

According to the structure, cold storage refrigeration compressors can be divided into two categories: hermetic scroll compressors and semi-hermetic piston refrigeration compressors.

At present, the market is mainly semi-closed piston refrigeration compressors (the amount of screw compressors is increasing). Semi-closed piston refrigeration compressors are generally driven by four-pole motors.

The rated power is generally between 60-600 KW and the number of cylinders is 2. — 8 , up to 12 . The fully enclosed refrigeration compressor and the motor used together have a main shaft housed in the casing, so that the shaft sealing device can be eliminated, reducing the possibility of leakage.

Below we look at their advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages: The refrigeration compressor and the motor are housed in a casing welded by welding or brazing, sharing the main shaft, which eliminates the shaft sealing device and greatly reduces and reduces the size and weight of the entire compressor.

hermetic scroll compressor

Only the exhaust pipe, process pipe and other (such as spray pipe) necessary pipes, input power terminals and compressor brackets are welded to the outer surface of the casing.

Disadvantages: Since the entire refrigeration compressor motor unit is installed in a sealed casing that cannot be disassembled, it is difficult to open for internal repair.

Therefore, the refrigeration compressor is required to have high reliability and long life, and the installation of the entire refrigeration system.

The requirements are also high. This fully enclosed structure is generally used in small-volume refrigeration compressors for mass production.

The semi-hermetic refrigeration compressor mostly adopts the cylinder block-crank box overall structure, and the motor casing is often the extension part of the cylinder crankcase to reduce the connection surface and ensure the concentricity between the compressor stage motors.

semi-hermetic piston compressor

The two spaces of the crankcase and the motor compartment are communicated by the holes to facilitate the return of the lubricating oil.

The main shaft of the semi-hermetic refrigeration compressor is a structure of a crankshaft or an eccentric shaft; the built-in motor is cooled by air or water, and some is used to suck low-temperature working fluid vapor. For semi-hermetic compressors in the low power range, the lubrication is often done by centrifugal oil supply.

Widely used in cold storage, refrigerated transport, refrigeration processing, showcases and kitchen refrigerators.

Advantages of using a semi-closed refrigeration compressor: It can adapt to a wide range of pressure and cooling capacity; high thermal efficiency, less power consumption per unit, especially the presence of gas valve makes it more obvious when running away from design conditions.

The requirements are low, and the common steel materials are used. The processing is relatively easy and the cost is relatively low.

The technology is relatively mature, and the production and use have accumulated rich experience; the device system is relatively simple.

Installation and commissioning of cold storage refrigeration equipment:

A.Assembly and installation of the refrigeration unit

1. The oil separator should be installed in the semi-sealed or fully enclosed compressor, and an appropriate amount of oil should be added to the oil. When the evaporation temperature is lower than -15 degrees, a gas-liquid separator should be installed and an appropriate amount of refrigeration oil should be installed.

Cold Room chiller and condenser installation

2. The base of the compressor should be equipped with a damping rubber seat.

3, the installation of the unit should have maintenance space, easy to observe the adjustment of the instrument and valve.

4. The high-pressure gauge should be installed at the three-way of the liquid storage valve.

Cold Room refrigeration unit

5. The overall layout of the unit is reasonable and the colors are consistent. The installation structure of each type of unit should be consistent.

B. Cold storage and air cooler/chiller installation

1. When selecting the position of the lifting point, first consider the best position of the air circulation, and secondly consider the direction of the structure of the storage body.

Cold storage and air cooler chiller installation

2. The gap between the chiller and the slab should be greater than the thickness of the chiller.

3. All the slings of the chiller should be tightened, and the bolts and slings should be perforated with a sealant to prevent cold bridge and air leakage.

4. When the ceiling fan is too heavy, use the No. 4 or No. 5 angle iron as the lintel. The lintel should span across the other roof and wall panels to reduce the load.

cold storage cooler

C.Refrigeration pipe installation technology

1. The selection of the diameter of the copper pipe should be in accordance with the pipe diameter of the compressor suction and exhaust valve. When the condenser is separated from the compressor by more than 3 meters, the pipe diameter should be increased.

2. The suction surface of the condenser and the wall are kept at a distance of more than 400mm, and the air outlet and the obstacle are kept at a distance of more than 3 meters.

3. The diameter of the inlet and outlet of the liquid storage tank shall be based on the exhaust and discharge diameters indicated on the unit sample.

4. The compressor suction line and the air cooler return line shall not be smaller than the size indicated in the sample to reduce the internal resistance of the evaporation line.

Refrigeration pipe installation technology

5. The exhaust pipe and the return pipe should have a certain slope. When the condenser position is higher than the compressor, the exhaust pipe should be inclined to the condenser and a liquid ring should be installed at the compressor exhaust port to prevent the gas from cooling and liquefying after shutdown. At the high pressure exhaust port, the liquid is compressed when the machine is started again.

6. U-bend should be installed at the exit of the return pipe of the air-cooling fan. The return air pipe should be inclined to the direction of the compressor to ensure smooth oil return.

7. The expansion valve should be installed as close as possible to the cooling fan. The solenoid valve should be installed horizontally, the valve body should be vertical and the direction of the liquid should be noted.

8. If necessary, install a filter on the compressor return line to prevent dirt in the system from entering the compressor and remove moisture from the system.

9. Before the sodium and lock nut of the refrigeration system are tightened, the lubricating oil should be wiped to lubricate, and the sealing property should be strengthened. After tightening, wipe it clean and the roots of each cutting door should be locked.

10. The temperature sensor of the expansion valve is fastened with a metal card at the outlet of the evaporator at 100mm-200mm and is tightly wrapped with double insulation.

11. After the whole system is welded, the airtightness test is carried out, and the high-pressure end is filled with nitrogen 1.8MP. The low-pressure end is filled with nitrogen 1.2MP.

The soap is leaked during the pressure-filling. The welds, flanges and valves are carefully inspected. After the leak is completed, the pressure is kept for 24 hours without pressure drop.

D.Electronic control system installation technology

1. Each contact marks the line number for maintenance.

2. Produce an electric control box in strict accordance with the requirements of the drawings, and connect the electricity to do the no-load test.

3. Name each contactor.

4. Fix the wires of each electrical component with the binding wire.

5. electrical contacts press the wire connector, the motor main line connector, the application line card is tight.

Electronic control system installation technology

6. The connecting pipes of each equipment should be laid and fixed with clamps. When the PVC pipes are connected, they are glued and the nozzles are sealed with tape.

7. The distribution box is installed horizontally and horizontally, and the ambient lighting is good. The inside of the house is dry and easy to observe and operate.

8. The area occupied by the wire in the wire pipe shall not exceed 50%.

9. The selection of the wire must have a safety factor. When the unit is running or defrosting, the temperature of the wire should not exceed 4 degrees.

10, the wire should not be exposed to the open air, so as to avoid long-term sun and wind blowing wire aging, short circuit leakage and other phenomena.

E. Refrigeration system fluoride adjustment

1. Measure the power supply voltage. Measure the resistance of the three windings of the compressor and the insulation of the motor.

2. Check the opening and closing of each valve of the refrigeration system.

3. After evacuating, inject the refrigerant into the liquid storage to 70%-80% of the standard filling amount, and then run the compressor from low pressure to sufficient amount.

4. After starting the chiller machine, first listen to whether the sound of the compressor is normal, whether the condenser or the cooling fan is running normally, and whether the three-phase current of the compressor is stable.

Refrigeration system fluoride adjustment

5. After normal cooling, check all parts of the refrigeration system, exhaust pressure, suction pressure, exhaust temperature, suction temperature, motor temperature, crankcase temperature, temperature before expansion valve, observe frosting of evaporator and expansion valve, Observe the oil level and color change of the oil mirror, and whether the sound of the equipment is abnormal.

6. Set the temperature parameter and the expansion valve opening degree according to the frosting and usage of the cold storage.

F.Precautions during the test running

1. Check whether the valves in the refrigeration system are in the normally open state, especially the exhaust shut-off valve. Do not close.

2. Open the cooling water valve of the condenser. If it is an air-cooled condenser, turn on the fan and check that the steering water volume and air volume should meet the requirements.

3. The electrical control circuit should be tested separately beforehand. Before starting, pay attention to whether the power supply voltage is normal.

4. Whether the oil level of the compressor crankcase is in the normal position, generally should be kept at the horizontal center line position of the oil sight glass.

5. Start the cooling compressor and check whether it is normal and the rotation direction is correct.

cold storage refrigeration chiller

6. When the compressor starts, check the indication values of the high and low pressure gauges, whether they are within the pressure range of the normal operation of the compressor.

7. View the indication value of the oil pressure gauge, the compressor with the energy unloading device, the oil pressure indication value should be 0.15-0.3 MPa higher than the suction pressure, and the compressor without the unloading device, the oil pressure indication value is higher than the suction pressure by 0.05. -0.15MPa, otherwise the oil pressure should be adjusted.

8. Listen to the expansion valve for refrigerant flow and observe whether the pipeline after the expansion valve has normal condensation (air conditioning) and frost (cold storage).

9. Compressor with energy unloading should work at full load at the beginning of the operation. This can be understood according to the temperature of the cylinder head.

The cylinder head temperature is high, the cylinder is working, and the cylinder head temperature is low, the cylinder has been unloaded. When the unloading test is carried out, the motor current should be significantly reduced.

cooling tower

10. Safety protection devices installed in the refrigeration system, such as high and low pressure relays, oil pressure. Differential relays, cooling water and chilled water shut-off relays, chilled water freeze protection relays, safety valves and other equipment should be identified during commissioning to avoid malfunction or malfunction.

11. Check whether other various instrument indication values are within the specified range. If abnormal conditions occur, stop the inspection immediately.

12. Common faults during refrigeration system commissioning are plugging of expansion valves or dry filters (especially medium and small Freon refrigeration units).

13. The main reason for the blockage is that the garbage and moisture in the system are not cleaned, or the water content of the added Freon refrigerant does not meet the standard.

The above information is all concerned about how to install the cold room cooler and refrigeration chiller, the coming items are for the installation of cold storage panels:

The cold storage involves a lot of technical skills in the installation process, masters the operation skills, saves time and effort, and has a beautiful appearance and practicality after the cold storage installation.

Cold storage installation techniques involve cold storage board installation techniques, cold storage door installation techniques, and refrigeration equipment installation techniques.

Cold storage installation skills, the first installation order cannot be reversed, it is difficult to install correctly after the installation order is reversed. The installation order of the cold storage boards should follow the following principles:

If there is a cold storage floor, the cold storage floor should be installed first, then the sidewall station board, the rear wall station board, and the front wall station board should be installed, and finally, the cold storage roof board should be installed.

At the time of installation, the general cold storage door manufacturer will have a sequence number. It is best not to disturb the order of the manufacturers. In order, the joints of the cold storage plates and the convex and concave joints are tightly started to lock the buckles. It is easy and natural, after the library is built, Use a cold storage special sealant to seal the seam between each cold storage plate.

cold room installation

Cold storage door installation skills: The first thing to pay attention to in the cold storage door installation is the balance of the door frame. Many small cold storage engineering companies do not pay attention to the balance of the door frame when installing the cold storage door.

After the installation is completed, it is found that the cold storage door is inclined, not inclined toward the inner side, or inclined toward the outer side. The inclination of the cold storage door directly affects the insulation effect in the cold storage.

Specific operation method:
1. Leave the vertical ridges on the left and right door frames on the height of the frame on the door.
1. Fix the door frame after using the horizontal balance door frame;
2. The upper frame plate of the cold storage door is pushed into the installation position from bottom to top;
3. Push the frame on the door of the partition wall and push it from bottom to top into the installation position.

Second, the heating wire and the door frame strip device.
1. Adhered to the door frame by aluminum foil tape. The door frame strip is riveted to the door frame, and the cold storage library door heating wire is arranged around the outside of the opening 25 mm. Cover the heating wire.

Third, the device of the revolving door.
1. The template will be installed (MB1 left end hinge device template, MB2 right end hinge device module,
2. The screw holes of the device for prefabricating the hinge and the door lock on the door panel. Drill the tapping wire on the left and right door frames according to the positioning holes on the template.

Refrigeration equipment installation tips:
The important point of installation of the refrigeration equipment is to fix the equipment firmly. The first time the equipment is fixed is very important.

If the first time is not fixed properly, it will bring looseness to the operation of the equipment in the future, and the refrigeration equipment will be loose. Will accelerate the life of the device.

The installation of the refrigeration equipment must first select the distance between the external unit and the internal unit. The closer the distance is, the better the cooling effect will be.

cold room cooler installation

Choose the best inside and outside machine installation points, and the outside machine needs to be well covered.

The layout of the cold storage is carried out in a prefabricated manner, and the storage body components including the moisture-proof layer and the heat-insulating layer are made to be assembled on site, and the strength is that the construction is convenient, rapid, and movable, but the cost is relatively high.

Why should the cold storage be defrosted? How many do you know about defrosting?

I. Overview:
Due to the frost on the surface of the evaporator in the cold storage, the cooling and conduction of the cooling evaporator (pipe) is hindered, which ultimately affects the cooling effect.

When the thickness of the frost layer (ice layer) on the surface of the evaporator reaches a certain level, the refrigeration efficiency even drops below 30%, resulting in a large waste of electric energy and shortening the service life of the refrigeration system.

Therefore, it is necessary to perform the cold storage defrosting operation in an appropriate cycle.

Cold room defrost

The purpose of defrosting:
1. Improve system cooling efficiency;
2. Guarantee the quality of frozen products in the warehouse;
3. Saving energy;
4. Extend the service life of the cold storage system.

Defrost method:
Cold storage defrosting method: hot gas defrosting (hot fluorine defrosting, hot ammonia defrosting), water spray defrosting, electrical defrosting, mechanical (manual) defrosting, etc.

1. Hot air defrosting – suitable for large, medium and small cold storage pipe defrosting:
The hot high-temperature gaseous condensing agent is directly discharged into the evaporator without being intercepted, and the temperature of the evaporator rises, causing the frosting layer and the cold-discharge junction to melt or subsequently peel off.

Hot air melting is economical and reliable, easy to maintain and manage, and its investment and construction are not difficult.

2, water spray defrost – mostly used in large and medium-sized air cooler defrosting:
Regularly spray the evaporator with normal temperature water to melt the frost layer. Although the defrosting effect of the water spray defrosting is very good, it is more suitable for the air cooler, and it is difficult to operate for the evaporation coil.

It is also possible to spray the evaporator with a solution with a higher freezing point temperature, such as 5% to 8% concentrated brine, to prevent frost formation.
3, electric heating defrost – an electric heating tube is mostly used for medium and small air coolers:
The electric heating wire is mostly used for medium and small cold storage aluminum tube electric heating defrosting, which is simple and easy to use for the cold air blower, and convenient to use; but for the case of the aluminum tube cold storage, the construction of the aluminum fin mounting electric heating wire is not small.

And The failure rate in the future is also relatively high, the maintenance management is difficult, the economy is also poor, and the safety factor is relatively low.

4, mechanical manual defrost – small cold storage tube defrost application:
Cold depot pipe manual defrost is economical, the most primitive defrost method. Larger cold storage is not realistic with artificial defrosting. It is difficult to operate upwards, and physical energy consumption is too fast.

The long stay in the library is too long to be harmful to the health of the body. Defrost is not easy to completely remove, which may cause deformation of the evaporator and may even smash evaporation. The refrigerant caused a refrigerant leakage accident.

Fourth, the fluorine system defrosting mode selection:
A relatively suitable defrosting method is selected depending on the evaporator of the cold storage. A few micro-miniature cold storages use a parking garage to open the door, using air heat to naturally defrosting.

Some high-temperature storage chillers choose to stop the chiller, open the chiller fan separately, use the fan to circulate air to defrost, and do not activate the electric heating tube to achieve energy saving.

1. Defrost mode of air cooler:
(1), there are electric heating tube defrosting and water rushing cream can be selected, the area where water is more convenient can be biased to choose water blasting chiller, and the water shortage area is biased to choose chiller of electric heating tube defrosting.

(2), electric heating tube defrosting is mostly used in small air cooler defrosting; water blasting cold air fan is generally deployed in large air conditioning, refrigeration systems.
2, the steel defrosting method: there is hot fluoride defrosting and manual defrosting can choose.

3, the defrost mode of aluminum tube: there are hot fluoride defrost and electric heating cream can choose.

Five, cold storage defrosting time:
Most cold storage defrosting is now controlled based on the defrosting temperature probe or defrosting time. The number of defrosting times, the time, and the defrosting stop temperature should be adjusted according to the quantity of the stacked goods and the quality of the goods.
At the end of the defrosting time, and then to the dripping time, the fan starts again.

Note that the defrosting time should not be set too long, try to achieve a reasonable defrosting. (The defrosting cycle is generally based on the power transmission time or the compressor startup time.)

Six, the cause of excessive frost:
There are many reasons that affect frost formation, such as evaporator structure, atmospheric environment (temperature, humidity), and air flow rate. The effect on frost formation and air cooler performance is as follows:
1. The temperature difference between the inlet air and the cold storage cooler;
2. The humidity of the inhaled air;
3. Fin spacing;
4. Import air flow rate.

TopChiller suggests that when the temperature of the reservoir is higher than 8 °C, the normal cold storage system is almost no frost; when the ambient temperature is -5 ° C to 3 ° C, the relative humidity of the air is large, the air cooler is easy to frost; when the ambient temperature is decreasing As the moisture content in the air decreases, the frosting rate decreases.

Once your cold room or cold storage finished the installation and on running, but the cold storage temperature is not good, check these problems first:

In the refrigeration system of cold storage, the most common operational failures are: slow cooling temperature, abnormal system operation, or inoperable operation.

The cold storage refrigeration temperature drops slowly, mostly due to improper operation adjustment, and the adjustment of the expansion valve is the most critical.

The opening degree of the expansion valve is small, the flow rate of the refrigerant is small, and the pressure is low; the opening degree of the expansion valve is large, the flow rate of the refrigerant is high, and the pressure is high.

Depending on the thermal properties of the refrigerant, the lower the pressure, the lower the corresponding temperature; the higher the pressure, the higher the corresponding temperature.

According to this law, if the expansion valve outlet pressure is too low, the corresponding evaporation pressure and temperature are too low. However, due to the decrease in the flow rate into the evaporator, the pressure is reduced, the evaporation rate is slowed down, the cooling capacity per unit volume (time) is decreased, and the cooling efficiency is lowered.

expansion valve

If the expansion valve outlet pressure is too high, the corresponding evaporation pressure and temperature are too high.

The flow rate and pressure entering the evaporator are increased. Because the liquid evaporates excessively, the excessive moisture (or even liquid) is sucked by the compressor, causing the wet stroke (liquid blow) of the compressor, causing the compressor to fail to work normally, resulting in a series of work. Bad conditions, even damage the compressor.

The opening degree of the expansion valve should be adjusted according to the library temperature at that time, that is, adjusted under the pressure corresponding to the reservoir temperature.

For example: the storage temperature is -10 degrees, the evaporation temperature of the cold storage should be about 5 degrees lower than the storage temperature, that is, -15 degrees, and the corresponding evaporation pressure is about 0.96 kilograms (R22).

Due to the pressure loss factor, the regulated pressure is substantially reflected in the suction pressure of the compressor.

The adjustment of the expansion valve must be carried out carefully and patiently. The adjustment pressure must be exchanged by the evaporator and the reservoir temperature to evaporate (evaporate) and then flow through the pipeline into the compressor suction chamber to reflect the pressure gauge. It takes time.

Each time the expansion valve is mobilized, it usually takes 10~15 minutes to stabilize the adjustment pressure of the expansion valve on the suction pressure gauge, and the adjustment cannot be rushed.

The suction pressure of the compressor is the main parameter for adjusting the pressure of the expansion valve.

thermal expansion valve

The technical performance of the expansion valve directly affects whether it can properly regulate the operation of the logo. It is usually prone to failures such as clogging of the filter and leakage of the temperature sensitive agent.

The adjustment reaction is not sensitive, the adjustment is out of control or cannot be adjusted. When the frost is formed at the inlet of the expansion valve (or the valve cover is also frosted), the temperature of the inlet pipe is lower than normal temperature and even condensation.

For example, the suction pressure of the compressor is lower than the corresponding pressure at the storage temperature, the operating temperature of the machine and the exhaust temperature are high, and the cooling temperature drops slowly or not. It may be that the filter of the expansion valve is blocked, and there is dirty or ice blockage. Phenomenon (or leakage refrigerant).

1. Close the main valve for liquid supply and turn on the compressor. When the suction pressure is stable below 0, close the exhaust valve of the compressor and stop the compressor at the end of the shutdown (finished fluorine).

2. Disassemble the inlet of the expansion valve, take out the filter and clean it, replace it, and replace the infusion drying filter or filter. Check the performance of the infusion solenoid valve and restore it (check the cleaning).

3. Open the exhaust bypass port of the compressor (others are still in the state of receiving fluorine), start the operation, and let the air from the liquid supply main valve to the compressor body be completely withdrawn from the exhaust bypass port, and the suction pressure is stable. When the vacuum is below 0 (the pumping is completed), the exhaust bypass port is closed, the exhaust valve of the compressor and the liquid supply master valve are opened, and the system resumes operation.

If the expansion valve itself works normally, it is only because of the blockage caused by excessive moisture or dirt in the system, causing serious ice blockage or dirty blockage, which makes the system work abnormally.

The temperature of the expansion valve advances the liquid pipe to be lower than normal temperature, even Condensation, the valve after the valve has no temperature reaction, the suction pressure of the compressor is below 0, the machine operating temperature and exhaust temperature is high, and even the knocking sound, the cooling temperature does not drop, and the operating conditions are bad.

filter core

Excessive system moisture:
1, the usual maintenance vacuum is not complete;
2. The leakage causes the low pressure to continue to operate under negative pressure and inhale the moisture;
3. The system has been put on for too long after being disassembled;
4. The resurgence of the parts is sticky;
5. The excess of water in the refrigerant is excessive;
6. The condensation tube of the water-cooled condenser is broken;

The reason for the excessive accumulation of the system is mainly due to the precipitation of the tubular oxide and the water-cooled condenser iron oxide and other pollutants of the system with the circulation of the working fluid.

dirty shell and tube heat exchanger

Inspection of compression efficiency of the compressor: close the suction and exhaust valve of the compressor, open the exhaust bypass port (multiple port), start the compressor operation, the low pressure of the compressor will quickly form a vacuum, and the exhaust port of the exhaust port Gradually become smaller, and soon there will be no more gas discharge, the running noise will gradually become smaller, and the exhaust bypass port will be discharged without oil.

When the exhaust bypass port (multiple ports) is closed, the low pressure vacuum of the compressor will not be fast. Pick-up, high and low pressure will take 10-15 minutes to balance, indicating that the compression efficiency of the compressor is good, and the sealing of the valve meets the requirements.

compression efficiency testing

If the exhaust port of the compressor always has gas discharge, or it will bring out (spray) the lubricating oil, it is enough to show that the compression performance of the compressor is poor, the airtightness of the valve is not strict, and the operating position of the cylinder and The wear gap of the oil ring is too large.

Repairs are required. This is the most basic, simplest and most practical method for testing the compression efficiency and air tightness test of a compressor.

In addition, the system should be drained and vented frequently or periodically to improve the heat exchange performance and cooling performance of the heat exchanger. Since the frozen oil has a large viscosity, it is usually adsorbed on the inner surface of the pipe or the container to form an oil film layer.

Especially on the low pressure side (expansion valve outlet to compressor inlet), the viscosity of the oil is larger due to the lower temperature, and the oil film layer is of course larger, thus increasing the heat exchanger (evaporator and condenser). Thermal resistance affects heat transfer performance and reduces the cooling effect. The more oil in the system, the greater the drawback, so it is very detrimental to refrigeration.

The presence of air or other non-condensable gases in the system will cause the condensing pressure and temperature to rise, the power consumption to increase, the operating temperature of the compressor to be high, the load to be heavy, and the cooling efficiency to be lowered.

The exhaust pipe evaporator can use the lowest discharge port to drain the oil; the lowest outlet of the chiller combined evaporator generally has an oil drain (sewage) port.

The oil discharge and air discharge operations should be carried out under the static shutdown of the system. The air release should also be carried out when the temperature is low, so the effect will be better.

For systems that do not have a dedicated air release unit, the air outlet is generally selected at the highest point on the high pressure side. The evaporation tube of the cold storage and the fin tube of the cooling fan must be defrosted in time (time) to ensure its good heat transfer effect.

10 kinds of cold storage room common fault problems and solutions

1. Initial operation of cold storage equipment:

The initial operation of cold storage equipment should always observe the oil level and oil return of the compressor and the cleanliness of the oil.

It is found that the oil is dirty or the oil surface should be resolved in time to avoid poor lubrication.

2. Always observe the operating status of the heart compressor of the cold storage equipment:

Check the exhaust temperature.

When operating in the season, pay special attention to the operating status of the system, and adjust the system liquid supply and condensation temperature in time.

3, Do not start for a long time or start the machine for a long time without stopping or the temperature of the library is not stopped:

Check whether there is dirt on the condenser, the heat dissipation will cause the condensing pressure of the refrigerator to be too high.

In order to protect the compressor, in the pressure controller Under the action of the machine stops running, wait until the heat is good, press the black reset button on the voltage controller, the machine will automatically resume operation.

4, usually by observing the changes of the instrument:

listening to the sound of the machine running, touching the temperature changes of the machine and other methods to observe the operating state of the compressor found that the compressor has a string of gas and other phenomena should be repaired or replaced in time.

5, cold storage due to poor insulation or sealing performance, resulting in a large loss of cooling capacity:

The poor thermal insulation performance of the cold storage is due to insufficient thickness of insulation layer of pipelines, warehouse insulation walls, etc., insulation and insulation effects are not good.

It is mainly designed insulation The thickness of the layer is not properly selected or the quality of the insulation material is poor during construction.

Or the insulation and moisture-proof performance of the insulation material may be destroyed, causing the insulation layer to be damp, deformed or even smashed, and its thermal insulation capacity is reduced, and the loss of the cold storage capacity of the storage is increased, and the temperature drop of the storage is obviously slowed down.

6. The surface of the cold storage evaporator is too thick or excessively dusty:

the heat transfer effect is reduced to prevent the frost layer on the surface of the evaporator from being too thick, and it needs to be defrosted regularly. In addition to excessive frosting, the heat transfer effect of the evaporator is not good.

The surface of the evaporator is too thick for long-term not cleaning, and its heat transfer efficiency is also significantly reduced.

7. There is more air or refrigeration oil in the evaporator:

The heat transfer effect is reduced.

Once the evaporator has more refrigerant oil on the inner surface of the heat transfer tube, the heat transfer coefficient will be reduced. Similarly, if the heat transfer tube is there is more air,

the heat exchange area of ​​the evaporator is reduced, the heat transfer efficiency is also significantly reduced, and the warehouse temperature drop rate is slowed down.

8. Improper adjustment or blockage of the cold storage throttle valve:

If the refrigerant flow rate is too large or the throttle valve is improperly adjusted or blocked, it will directly affect the refrigerant flow entering the evaporator.

When the opening degree of the throttle valve is too large, the refrigerant flow rate is too large, and the evaporation pressure and the evaporation temperature also increase.

Meanwhile, when the throttle valve opening degree is too small or blocked, the refrigerant flow rate also decreases, and the system flow rate is also reduced.

The amount of cooling is also reduced. Generally, by observing the evaporation pressure, evaporation temperature and frosting of the suction pipe to judge whether the throttle valve refrigerant flow is suitable, the throttle valve blockage is an important factor affecting the refrigerant flow rate, and the main cause of the throttle valve blockage is ice.

Blocking and dirty plugging. The ice blockage is due to the poor drying effect of the dryer. The refrigerant contains moisture.

When flowing through the throttle valve, the temperature drops below 0 °C, and the moisture in the refrigerant forms ice and blocks the throttle hole.

The dirty plug is Due to the accumulation of more dirt on the filter inlet of the throttle valve, the refrigerant flows poorly and forms a blockage.

9. Insufficient refrigerant amount in the cold storage system:

Insufficient cooling capacity There are two main reasons for insufficient refrigerant circulation in the cold storage.

First, the refrigerant charge is insufficient. In this case, only enough refrigerant can be added. One reason is that the system refrigerant leaks more.

In the case of such a situation, the leak point should be searched first. The pipelines and valves should be inspected to find out the leaked parts and then filled with a sufficient amount of refrigerant.

10, the compressor efficiency is low:

The cooling capacity cannot meet the warehouse load requirements.

Due to the long-term operation of the compressor, the cylinder liner and piston ring and other components are seriously worn.

The matching clearance will increase, the sealing performance will decrease accordingly, and the compressor’s gas transmission coefficient will also follow.

The reduction will reduce the cooling capacity. The refrigeration capacity of the compressor can be roughly judged by observing the suction and exhaust pressure of the compressor.

If the refrigeration capacity of the compressor drops, the common method is to replace the cylinder liner and piston ring of the compressor.

If it still fails to work after replacement, other factors should be considered, even disassemble and repair, and eliminate the fault factor.
