  60. Low-Temp evaporators are designed differently.  fins are spaced farther apart to accommodate frost buildup without sacrificing airflow
  61. low temp evap methods to defrost the coil
    • hot gas defrost sends the compressor discharge gas to the evap to melt the ice
    • electric heaters can also be used.
  62. high temp coil uses what type of defrost
    none. no need because the box temp is not designed to go below 32*F
  63. Medium temp coil uses what type of defrost
    random defrost. anytime the compressor shuts down, it defrosts by the space temp inside the box by blowing the warmer air over the coil.
  64. low temp coil uses what type of defrost
    planned defrost. relies on a timer , and some type of mechanical device to defrost the coil
  65. FPI. Fins Per Inch. how many FPI does ac, med and low temp coils have
    • ac has 15+ fpi
    • med has 7 to 14 fpi usually 10
    • low has 6 fpi
  66. Where is Hot gas defrost piped in the system
    It will be piped from the discharge line to the evaporator after the TXV, but before the distributors
  67. How does Hot gas defrost work.
    Image Upload
    • Compressor discharge gas pumped directly to the evaporator coil during the defrost cycle
    • hot gas from the compressor condenses to a liquid  in the evap coil.
    • Liquid from the evap vaporizes in the accumulator before returning to the compressor
  68. How does Electric Defrost work.
    Image Upload
    • Electric heating element are located next to the evaporator coil
    • The compressor and the fan motor are not running during defrost
    • At the end of the defrost cycle, the compressor cycles on before the fan, to allow the evap coil to get cold before the fan energized
