TD is the temperature difference between the box temperature and the refrigerant temperature in the evaporator. Figure 4 is typical of the piping for a pump-down system. The final chosen differential has to be a compromise. For instance, a condenser with nine fans would have each fan cycling control turn three fans on and off at the same time.

Since we know the cut-in we want, this is easily determined. A wide differential will give longer running time, but may cause wide temperature swings.

This D P between the evaporator and the LPC connection will result in an increase in the differential setting. Depending on ot well the system balance was made, that is, matching the evaporator to the compressor capacity at the selected suction temperature, the compressor run time will be long enough to give good efficiency and not short cycle.

To set the differential, and consequently the ;t setting, four factors need to be determined: Figure 1 shows the usual starting set points to set up a LPC for various applications.

Even low temperature freezers using R or RA should not be set lower than 0 psi cut-out. Indoor unit, RA refrigerant. An LP fan cycling control senses discharge head pressure and closes on rise of pressure. There are some advantages to this type of system. Since these systems are small and usually closely coupled, the D P in the suction line should be somewhere around 2 to 4 psig. Charrt 3 is a guide for setting the LPC for outdoor units. To control box pr with a low-pressure control, the system must use a thermostatic expansion valve, non-bleed type.


Refrigerant Pressure – Temperature Chart

When the thermostat opens the circuit to the solenoid valve, the valve closes and the compressor pumps the refrigerant from the evaporator and suction line into the receiver and condenser, reducing the refrigerant pressure to the cut-out setting of the LPC chxrt stops the compressor. For condensing units outdoors, either the coldest unit operating temperature or the coldest ambient temperature selects the cut-in setting, whichever is the lowest temperature.

Remember—too close a differential may maintain close temperature control, but cause short cycling, greatly shortening equipment life. Refrigerant temperature is the design suction temperature when the compressor is on. In a pump down system, a thermostat controls a solenoid valve in the liquid line.

Allow 2 – 3 psi for suction line D P. Usually it 404w advantageous to keep the compressor on as long as possible for maximum efficiency.

The compressor will now go on at 33 psi and go off at psi suction pressure. A 35 to 50 044a differential is suggested, depending on usage. Set the differential at 11 psi. The LPC cut-in setting should be selected first. If the beer cooler, used as previous example, were to use a pump-down system, the LPC cut-in setting would be determined as 440a The pressure control for each fan should be set to cut-in about 10 psi apart.

The cut-out setting should be a reasonable amount of PSI lower than the cut-in, but not so low that the compressor will have difficulty reaching the cut-out setting. Very large condensers having four or more fans, usually have the fan cycling controls control two or more fans at a time. Testing Wireless Solutions Testing wireless transmitters link. If, cgart the off cycle, refrigerant leaks into the low side to raise the pressure to the LPC cut-in setting, the LPC will start the compressor for a short cchart until the pressure is lowered to the cut-out point and the compressor is once again stopped.


The TD of the evaporator coil. Note that pf the solenoid valve is closed off the refrigerant is essentially trapped between the solenoid valve and the discharge valves of the compressor.

Set the cut-in at 18 psi. A differential setting of 5 psi to 10 psi will result in a reasonable cut-out setting of 8 to 13 psi.

Too small a differential will cause short cycling of the condenser fan and shorten the fan motor life. Figure 8 is a chart for condensers with multiple fans.

These brief occasional cycles are not objectionable, but if they occur too hcart, are an indication of a leaky solenoid valve or leaky compressor valves.

It should be long enough to prevent short cycling, but not so long as to cause wide temperature variations or excessively low suction pressure, which may cause motor overheating or inadequate lubrication.

Variations in systems will probably require small corrections 404x the settings. Unless gauges are installed at the outlet of the evaporator and at the LPC connection to the system, not practicalthis D P can be estimated.

Figure 5 and Figure 6 show two of the more common wiring diagrams for pump-down systems. The differential is the difference between the cut-in and the cut-out pressures. It is a good starting point. Our example of a beer cooler could be set up as follows: What all this means is that one picks cut-in and cut-out settings that should result in good temperature control, monitors the system, and then fine-tunes each specific job to achieve the desired results.
