Abstract
As an SBIR Phase I effort, CTS proposes to develop a mobile containerized cold-storage facility, using CO2 as a refrigerant, capable of conditioning 2/3rds of a 20' container to 38?F and 1/3rd of the container to -5?F at an ambient of 135?F, with a coefficient of performance (COP) greater than one. The refrigeration system will also have 30% reserve capacity at these conditions. The individual technical objectives of the proposed Phase I effort will be to develop several design options to meet these specifications, evaluate performance prediction of these designs using modeling tools, and perform benchtop testing of the optimal design to demonstrate the capabilities of the design approach.
