Part 2, lets expand the compression ratio into refrigeration, capacity and introduce cascade systems.
2.3:1 to 3.5:1 residential
3.0:1 – 5.5:1 coolers
6.0:1 – 13.0:1 freezers
There is still so much more to learn about compression Ratio. Many details I left out.
This video recently came out with some of the top people in the industry talking about compression ratio. be sure to give it a watch and get an even deeper picture and a more precise understanding.
Compression Ratio – Capacity, Efficiency & SHR Class
Trevor Matthews, Eric Kaiser, Don Gillis, and Jim Bergmann join Bryan for an educational live stream about compression ratio, efficiency, and capacity. They also touch on sensible heat ratio (SHR) and the conditions that affect SHR and compression ratio.
