Question:-
Air cooling is used for Freon compressors whereas water jacketing is adopted for cooling ammonia compressors. This is because
Option (A)
Latent heat of ammonia is higher than that of Freon
Option (B)
Thermal conductivity of water is higher than that of air
Option(C)
Specific heat of water is higher than that of air
Option(D)
Of the larger superheat horn of ammonia compression cycle
Correct Option:
(A)
Question Solution:
Ammonia has high heat carrying capacity than Freon so water jacketing is employed to carry away the heat from compressor
