Question

Consider a 280 kJ/min refrigeration system that operates on an ideal vapor-compression refrigeration cycle with refrigerant-134a as the working fluid. The refrigerant enters the compressor as saturated vapor at 140 kPa and is compressed to 800 kPa. The saturated refrigerant-134a—pressure table (in SI units) is given below. Determine the quality of the refrigerant at the end of the throttling process.

Answer #1

vapor enters the compressor at 1 bar, and saturated liquid exits
the condenser at 4 bar. The mass flow rate of refrigerant is 8.5
kg/min.
