ABSTRACT

 

India is a leading developing country with flourishing refrigeration and air conditioning industry. Recently it has achieved the distinction of becoming the largest producer of milk in the world. Instant milk chilling units are used in dairy sector for chilling the milk to 4?C just after milking so that it can be preserved till further processing. Refrigerant Chloroflurocarbon12 is mainly used in milk chillers and as per Montreal Protocol, all Ozone depleting substances like R12 are to be phased out of use before 2010. This paper presents performance analysis of refrigeration system of milk chiller for selecting a eco-friendly alternative to replace R12 in milk chillers.
