Saturation temperature means boiling point. The saturation temperature is the temperature for a corresponding saturation pressure at which a liquid boils into its vapor phase. The liquid can be said to be saturated with thermal energy.
Simply so, what is the saturation temperature in the condenser?
The last function of the condenser is to subcool the liquid refrigerant. Subcooling is defined as any sensible heat taken away from the 100 percent saturated liquid. Technically, subcooling is defined as the difference between the measured liquid temperature and the liquid saturation temperature at a given pressure.
What is the saturated suction temperature?
High suction superheat means not enough refrigerant is being fed into the evaporator. Saturated suction temperature is the temperature at which the refrigerant is boiling in the evaporator. A temperature/pressure chart will tell you the saturated temperature that corresponds to any given pressure.
What is saturation in HVAC?
The process by which the discharge refrigerant from the compressor is cooled down to the condenser saturation temperature. Term. Dew Point. Definition. The temperature at which air reaches 100% humidity; for blended refrigerants, the temperature used to calculate evaporator superheat.
