Abstract:

A two stage Sibling Cycle refrigerator was investigated. A single stage refrigerator existed, and two models were used to design a second stage. The second stage was added to the existing cooler and tested different combinations of port timing, pressure, and operating speed were considered. The test results were compared to models. Following testing, an investigation was conducted to try to explain differences between the analytical and experimental results. Finally, available machinery to drive devices which both rotate and reciprocate were reviewed.
