In recent years, the sustainability and safety of perishable foods has become a major consumer concern, and refrigeration systems play an important role in the processing, distribution, and storage of such foods. To improve the efficiency of food preservation technologies, it is necessary to explore new technological and scientific advances both in materials and processes. The Handbook of Research on Advances and Applications in Refrigeration Systems and Technologies gathers state-of-the-art research related to thermal performance and energy-efficiency. Covering a diverse array of subjectsafrom the challenges of surface-area frost-formation on evaporators to the carbon footprint of refrigerant chemicalsathis publication provides a broad insight into the optimization of cold-supply chains and serves as an essential reference text for undergraduate students, practicing engineers, researchers, educators, and policymakers.The main characteristic of the DAR is of having no moving parts: a thermally driven pump (also referred to as the thermal pump) acts to circulate ... is nowadays used as hotel and domestic refrigerator, portable freezer and ice- maker, caravan and boat coolbox, wine cellar and so on. ...
