In recent years, the sustainability and safety of perishable foods has become a major consumer concern, and refrigeration systems play an important role in the processing, distribution, and storage of such foods. To improve the efficiency of food preservation technologies, it is necessary to explore new technological and scientific advances both in materials and processes. The Handbook of Research on Advances and Applications in Refrigeration Systems and Technologies gathers state-of-the-art research related to thermal performance and energy-efficiency. Covering a diverse array of subjectsafrom the challenges of surface-area frost-formation on evaporators to the carbon footprint of refrigerant chemicalsathis publication provides a broad insight into the optimization of cold-supply chains and serves as an essential reference text for undergraduate students, practicing engineers, researchers, educators, and policymakers.(a) Schematic diagram of the system with expander; (b) P-h diagram of the cycle with expander found that, COP first increases with air velocity, ... The higher COPs are achieved with 10.5 MPa operating pressure, with 54 tubes in the gas cooler and 1.5 ms-1 air velocity. ... The variation of refrigeration capacity Figure 13(d) is similar as in previous case, but the values are comparatively larger because ofanbsp;...
