Abstract:

This report presents the results of laboratory tests and calculations conducted on a Model 606 air conditioning system designed for U. S. Army Mobile applications. The specified test conditions were as follows an outside or sink temperature of 125 F, and inside or cooling load conditions of 90 F dry bulb and 67 F wet bulb. The results of performance testing a steady state cooling capacity of 7200 Btuhr at a COP of 0.544 was measured during testing. This performance compares favorably with an overall COP on the order of 0.35 produced by well-developed conventional air cycle turbo-machine and air cycle system technology. Also included in this report are calculations predicting the performance of this Model 606 compressor-expander with ports designed to minimize port losses and internal thermal barriers to minimize adverse intra- Circulator heat transfer.
