Abstract: In this research paper we have discussed the utilization of a cooler for air cooling as well as refrigeration. The purpose of this paper is to design modification of the existing design of, in which a refrigeration box is made of mild steel is attached inside the cooler tank and this tank of cooler is insulated by rubber pad from outside to avoid any loss of heat. All the surfaces of the box are in contact with tank water except the front face which is door of a refrigeration box. The proposed model is experimentally validated by conducting a series of experiments in a controlled atmosphere inside a room in the climate of Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India. Box is loaded with fruits / vegetables and parallel to this, the same quantities of fruits / vegetables are kept outside in the room and daily weight loss is measured.
Keywords: Air Cooler, Evaporative Cooling, Mathematical Modeling and Refrigeration Box.
Scope of the Article: Refrigeration and Air Conditioning.
