Abstract
DUE TO THE FORTHCOMING BAN ON ALL OZONE DEPLETING REFRIGERANTS, THENAVY NEEDS NEW REFRIGERATION TECHNOLOGIES TO REPLACE THOSE USING SUCH CHEMICALS. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM USES SOME OF THE INHERENT DESIGN ADVANTAGES OF A SCREW COMPRESSOR TO ADAPT IT TO A VAPOR COMPRESSION REFRIGERATION SYSTEM USING REFRIGERANT HFC-134A. HFC-134A HAS NO OZONE DEPLETION POTENTIAL. THE USE OF SCREW COMPRESSORS CAN OVERCOME ALLTHE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES ASSOCIATED WITH HFC-134A AND ITS LUBRICANT. THUS, RATHER THAN HAVING TO RELY ON UNPROVEN NON VAPOR COMPRESSION TECHNOLOGIES, THE NAVY CAN USE A PROVEN, HIGHLY RELIABLE, COST EFFECTIVE AND SAFE REFRIGERATION SYSTEM TO SATISFY ITS REFRIGERATION REQUIREMENTS.
