Abstract

Techniques of freezing vary for each application. Generally used R-12 refrigerant cannot be used for rapid cooling application. Later it is discovered that number of viable vegetative microorganisms in food are greatly reduced by quick freezing implementation. By the development of plate freezer this challenge has been met to enhance effective preservation. Plate type evaporators may be used in single or in banks. The plates may be manifold for parallel flow of refrigerant or they can be connected in series. This paper deals with the design and development of horizontal type plate freezer. In this paper , horizontal plate freezer consisting of two plates connected in parallel and having a cooling load of 0.496 kw is to be designed. Installing formed square tubing between two metal plates , which are brazed together at edges , forms the plate surface evaporator. The refrigerant used is R-134a which is now found out in market as a replacement of R-12.
