Saturation Temperature in Refrigeration

Saturation Temperature

Saturation Temperature is the temperature of a liquid, vapor, or a solid, where if any heat is added or removed, a change of state takes place.

  • A change of state transfers a large amount of energy.
  • At satura0on temperature, materials are sensi0ve to addi0ons or removal of heat.
  • Water is an example of how satura0on property of a material, can transfer a large amount of heat.
  • Refrigerants use the same principles as ice. For any given pressure, refrigerants have a satura0on temperature.
  • If the pressure is low, the satura0on temperature is low. If pressure is high, satura0on temperature is high.
