Quick Comparison between Gas Refrigeration Cycle and Vapor Refrigeration Cycle

air refrigeration vapour refrigeration

Gas Refrigeration Cycle
Vapor Refrigeration Cycle
Gases used as refrigerant
Liquids like Freon is used as refrigerant

No phase change in gas throughout the process (gaseous state only).
Phase change of refrigerant involved at heat exchangers (liquid – vapor)

Large volume of refrigerant required
Volume of referent required per ton of refrigeration is low

It has sensible heat only
Both sensible heat and latent heat involved in the refrigeration cycle.

High running cost
Low running cost

Low COP
High COP

Application: Air craft air-conditioning, not applicable for domestic and industrial purpose due to its size

Application: Domestic and industrial
