Refrigeration Components

Components that make up the refrigeration equipment.

Data Type: 
Constrained List
Unit of Measure: 
List Options Option Definition Unit of Measure
Anti sweat heater equipment An anti-sweat heater feature for glass display doors for a refrigerated case. May have control option for energy efficiency. None
Compressor A device that uses pistons or some other method to compress the refrigerant gas None
Compressor unloader Compressor unloader is (1) device for controlling compressor capacity by rendering one or more cylinders ineffective. (2) device on or in a compressor for equalizing the high- and low-side pressures for a brief period during starting in order to decrease the starting load on the motor. None
Condenser A device or unit used to condense a substance from its gaseous to its liquid state, by cooling it. In so doing, the latent heat is given up by the substance, and will transfer to the condenser coolant. None
Crankcase heater A crankcase heater that prevents condensation when the refrigeration equipment is off. None
Desuperheater valve The level of refrigerant superheater is controlled using a desuperheater valve. A refrigerant-to-water heat exchanger that transfers heat from high-pressure, high-temperature refrigerant to domestic water. Heat transfer occurs when the heat pump (air conditioner) operates to satisfy the building space conditioning load. Within the refrigeration circuit, the desuperheater is located between the compressor discharge and the reversing valve of a heat pump or between the compressor discharge and the inlet to the refrigerant-to-air condenser of an air conditioner. None
Evaporator pressure regulators Automatic valve or control device used to maintain the pressure, and thereby the temperature, in an evaporator above a predetermined minimum. For instance, when mechanical or electronic regulators are used to maintain the suction temperature in the individual cases. None
None None None
Not applicable Not applicable None
Other Other None
Refrigerant subcooler Heat exchanger, after the condenser, for subcooling the condensed refrigerant. None
Split condenser Condenser comprising several heat-exchanging components operating on one or several refrigeration systems. For instance, valve is used to split the condenser loop to better control head pressure. None
Unknown Unknown None
