The most commonly used fluids in the absorption system are water as absorbent and ammonia as refrigerant. The vapour from the evaporator is allowed to be mixed and absorbed in the absorber. The heat of absorption generated in the process is rejected from the absorber to the circulating cold water in a heat exchanger dipped in the solution contained in the absorber . Photo credit: Dometic The absorption cooling cycle consists of three phases: Liquid refrigerant evaporates in a low pressure vessel, picking up heat from the interior of the refrigerator
Vapour Absorption Refrigeration Systems (VARS) belong to the class of vapour cycles similar to vapour compression refrigeration systems. However, unlike vapour compression refrigeration systems, the required input to absorption systems is in the form of heat. Hence these systems are also called as heat operated or thermal energy driven systems Combining an absorption refrigeration system with a cogeneration plant allows for the usage of excess heat. The plant produces hot water, which in turn drives the absorption chiller. The concept of this technology (also called trigeneration) is borne out of the concurrent need for chilling, power and heating in the same facility

Absorption refrigeration system differs from vapor compression refrigeration system due to utilization of thermal energy source instead of electric energy. In the absorption refrigeration system two working fluids are used: a refrigerant and an absorbent The refrigerants used in the vapor absorption system are ammonia, water and lithium bromide. At first the refrigerant are condensed in the condenser and it gets evaporated in the evaporator. Then the refrigerant starts cooling process in evaporator and releases the heat to the atmosphere via the condenser Finally, in this article we discussed about vapour absorption refrigeration system based on LiBr-Water working fluids. This can provide refrigeration requirement up to 7.0 0 C. For refrigeration requirements at lower temperature say (-) 18 0 C, we use NH3-Water as working fluids.
