Abstract : Adsorption systems may find its application in refrigeration and air-conditioning, ice-making, water chiller etc. In conventional vapor compression refrigeration system, compressor is the main power consuming component. A vapor adsorption systemcan be feasible replacement for vapor compression refrigeration system. The main objective of this project is to design, fabricate and test a cost effective and laboratory scale vapor adsorption refrigeration system. An intermittent type vapor adsorption system is fabricated using some common stainless steel utensils, copper tube, an electric heater and a laboratory vacuum pump. The Refrigeration effect and COP of the system is determined from basic thermodynamic relations. Though COP is ∼0.175 but it's able to bring down temperature of circulating water by more than 10°C. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
