The main objective of this work is to perform experimental analyses of a absorption refrigeration system using a new refrigerant-sorbent pair as the working pair. The active component of sorbent is sodium thiocyanate (NaSCN). Ammonia (NH3) is chosen as refrigerant. As a result of these, it is concluded that the unit exhibits good cooling performance and the average cooling capacity is approximately 28.8kW and the average coefficient of performance (COP) of absorption system is 0.56. The unit is a thermal compressor which uses low-grade waste heat to generate refrigeration (cooling or freezing).
