A feasibility study on low temperature absorption refridgeration systems for food engineering applications - FT0589

To assess the feasibility of developing a low temperature absorption refrigeration system, to be driven by a relatively low temperature heat source. The aim is to use the absorption refrigerator in a Combined Heating, Refrigeration and Power (CHRP) System which should find wide application in the food manufacturing processing and retail industry.
