Role microelectromechanical systems has in the refrigeration industry


Discusses how the MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) industry might impact on the refrigeration industry. Reports on initial steps to develop a vibration meter, and also a refrigerant expansion valve is reported that could adjust equal flow rates for each evaporator circuit. Describes a viscosity meter that has been developed to determine the condition of the refrigerant/working fluid. Concludes with an outline of current work and future prospects.
