Study of Alternative Refrigerants and Refrigeration as Air Conditioning Sector in Mauritius: A Review

Abhijeet Sinha, Ankita Sharma


Theoretical in this paper study on refrigeration framework intended for low temperature which has zero-ozone exhausting point better heat move trademark gives more prominent refrigerant impact. In this paper we concentrate on the primary capacity part like blower, evaporator, refrigerant, fan and engine, technical details of the parts. Energy is the essential and most all-inclusive method of all sorts of work by person and nature. Everything what occur on the planet in the outflow of stream of energy is one of its structures. The vast majority utilize the world energy for contribution to their bodies or to the machines and subsequently about fills and power. Energy is a significant contribution to all areas of counters economy.
