Refrigerant System Cools Without Chemicals

Refrigerant System Cools Without Chemicals
An innovative refrigerant system powered by artificial muscles can cool the air three times more efficiently than conventional methods.

The system, developed by a team from Saarland University, is made up of a rotating cylinder with bundles of shape-memory, nitinol wires attached to its surface. The nitinol wires will absorb and release heat when bent and then returned their original shape, with a different up to 36°F. As the cylinder rotates, the bent wires will absorb heat, then shift back to their original shape and release the heat on the other side. This simple setup allows the device to be used as either a heat pump or a refrigerator.

According to Professor Stefan Seelecke, "Our new technology is also environmentally friendly and does not harm the climate, as the heat transfer mechanism does not use liquids or vapors.”

Its really good and achievement, as water scarcity is prevailing in some region as well as global warming issue and ambient temperature has one up, this water free cooling will
benefits a lot to HVACR and refrigerant industry.
Please keep me updated about progress related to this innovation.
