In this regard, what are the factors that influence the performance of compressor?
A change in the evaporation or the condensing temperature influences the operating conditions for the compressor. Any change in temperature affects the density of the refrigerant, which alters the compression ratio between the low-pressure and high-pressure sides.
Beside above, how is the capacity of a screw compressor controlled? Screw compressors are usually driven by constant-speed motors, with capacity control normally achieved via an internal regulating device known as a slide valve. By moving the slide in a direction parallel to the rotors, the effective length of the rotors can be shortened.
Just so, what is compressor capacity?
Capacity is the amount of air that the compressor can pump out. It is expressed in CFM (cubic feet per minute).
What are the three most common types of compressors used in air conditioning?
There are various types of compressors used in the refrigeration and air conditioning machines, these are: reciprocating, rotary, screw, centrifugal and scroll.
