An improved refrigeration system utilizing one or more vortex tubes. Vortex tubes produce liquid refrigerant from saturated-state vapor refrigerant in a vapor-compression refrigeration cycle. The efficiency of a refrigeration system can be improved by placing vortex tubes before and after the evaporator.
1. A refrigeration system having a compressor, a condenser, an expansion device, and an evaporator arranged in succession and connected via conduit in a closed loop in order to circulate refrigerant through the closed loop, the improvement comprising:a first vortex tube placed in the closed loop after the expansion device and before the evaporator for converting at least a portion of the refrigerant vapor exiting the expansion device into liquid; and a second vortex tube placed in the closed loop after the evaporator and before the compressor for convert...
