In any refrigerator model, food is cooled by means of an evaporator in which freon evaporates. While the refrigerant evaporates, it takes heat from the walls of the refrigerator, which results in the cooling of the chamber. In conventional single-chamber refrigerators, the evaporator is considered the most vulnerable element. Evaporators for refrigerators are made of aluminum with channels of various configurations. They can also be called rolled-welded, as they are made of two sheets of aluminum, which are rolled between rolls. During rolling, the plates are cold welded. Under the influence of high pressure, the channels are inflated. Some types of evaporators may have 5 cooling walls, and some may not have a back wall. Evaporators made of aluminum have good thermal conductivity, so they easily provide the cooling process. But, unfortunately, such elements can be easily damaged. Even a small crack can lead to freon leakage and disruption of the refrigeration system. In order to prevent evaporator breakage during the operation of the refrigerator, they are covered with polymers or special varnishes. However, the user must take all necessary precautions to protect such parts. If frost has appeared on the evaporator, it is not possible to remove holes in it, only by means of the defrosting process. Reliable protection of the evaporator is various gaskets and grids. A polyethylene tray can also protect the evaporator from salts and acids. Current models of single-door refrigeration units have a built-in dual evaporator system. In the refrigerator compartment, there is a self-defrosting evaporator attached to the rear wall, and in the freezer, there is a manual defrosting evaporator. In modern refrigerators, there are no protruding evaporators, as they are built into the wall and insulated. This evaporator is protected from various influences and serves much longer than others. Thus, the evaporator is a very important spare part of refrigeration equipment, on which the efficiency of the entire system depends. Is your refrigerator not working? You do not know what to do?
