The objective of this project is to conduct a comparative examination of two refrigerants in the vapor compression refrigeration system. One of the refrigerants is R-134a (tetrafluoroethane) which is commonly utilized as a refrigerant in the vapor compression refrigeration system, and the other is R-600a (isobutene) which is an isomer of butane. R-134a has zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), and its global warming potential (GWP) is tall, though R-600a has zero ODP and has almost nil GWP. Subsequently, R-600a may be distant better refrigerant as compared to the R-134a. Execution of both the refrigerants has been watched on the same test model. Coefficient of performance has been calculated to compare the two refrigerants. Results demonstrate that COP of R-600a is more than that of R-134a in this way R-600a may be a superior refrigerant.
