Refrigerating compressors: performance, life span, condition



Towards the end of last year, the Institute of Air Handling and Refrigeration (ILK) brought a new test bed for flammable refrigerants into service. Tests on compressors up to 30 m3/h and propane have been possible since January 2020. The newly developed automation solution allows measurements of refrigeration capacity due to DIN EN 13771-1 as well as shortened life span tests with increasing stress levels of over 500 hours with a subsequent condition analysis.
