Abstract

The present study of a freezing system has developed based on an air conditioning system, whose purpose is to take advantage of the technological transfer of cold producing equipment for food storage and conservation uses. The installed capacity of 9000 BTU/Hr was considered for the choice of equipment. We studied the freezing process of fish, water, and the preservation of legumes with a volume of 1 kg per product individually. The freezing temperature has evaluated with a mechanical compression refrigeration system of Gas R22 with temperature interactions of 29.6 ° C to -12 ° C. and monitored with a Proportional Integrative Derivative (PID) controller. For production cost, the equipment was mostly made of its parts and pieces with recycling material. A descriptive experimental design has carried out, for the verification of results. The equipment managed to reach chamber temperatures of -13 ° C from 20 minutes once the equipment (compressor) has turned on under specific product descriptions.
