# Einstein Refrigeration

#### vapourised

My question is generated by a an unsuccessful attempt to construct the einstein system with limited knowledge.

The first part the counter flow of different gasses (See attachment No1)

The main part is the simplified Einstein is what prevents counter flow in this system. I think that perhaps Butane vapour electrostatic-ally combines with NH3 vapour or visa versa.

Since this is my first entry to the Physics Forum I apologize any errors that I have made in post and thank you for your patience.

One simple question=Why are you calling butane ROO? Butane has no oxygen atoms. Or is it $R00$ ? Also what is $R600$?

#### vapourised

In the refrigeration trade all refrigerants are referred to by there refrigerant code, Butane is coded with R600A. I didn't bother with the subset as we don't use it in every day language. We don't bother to use the precursor ie R407a is 407 etc. Sorry about that. Any other reference I made to it were typos which I'm very good at sorry.

Thanks. This topic is completely new to me. Perhaps @Chestermiller can help. His expertise is thermodynamics, but he also might have some knowledge of refrigeration mechanisms.

Maybe @russ_watters could help also.

What does butane vapor combining electrostaticly with ammonia vapor mean? Does this somehow refer to the diagram of CO2 and ammonia in the first diagram with the valve? What is supposed to be happening there?
