View Full Version : Brine system.

Hi all.
I am trying to work out the capacities for two bare tube evaporators cooling a brine solution.

Galvanized tubing is being used for the evaporators.Tube diameter is 1 1/4".

Each evaporator has 83.5 feet in total pipe length.


3.927X1002=3934.854 sq.in

27.325 sq.ft of pipe surface per evaporator.

Evaporation temp would probably be about -10 c when at temperature.

Brine solution will be about 1-2 c when at temp.

Refrigerant is R 409a.

I am trying to get a capacity so I can match a compressor to this application.

Any help would be appreciated.
