Refrigerator is a simple machine, despite its high cost. It’s good to understand how it works and how it keeps our food cold. Because this way you will know how to use it properly and you’ll be able to identify a problem with your fridge faster.
Let us look at 5 main fridge’s components:
- It’s the heart of a fridge. The compressor is responsible for the circulation of the refrigerant and it works as a pump for substances movement.
- Evaporator. The refrigerant is boiling inside the evaporator and when refrigerant transforms from a liquid into a gas due to evaporation process, it decreases the temperature inside the fridge.
- It’s a place where the refrigerant transforms from a gas back into a liquid, causing heat release during this process.
- Capillary tube. It’s an expansion device. Capillary tube is located in between a condenser and evaporator. It used to control pressure in the refrigerator.
