Refrigeration plays an important role in developing countries, primarily for the food preservation, medicinal activities, and for the air conditioning. Conventional refrigeration systems are using Freon and CFC’s as refrigerant. As this chemicals are the main cause for depletion of ozone layer, extensive work is going on alternate refrigeration projects.Thermal separation flow studied and preliminary tests suggest that with the increase in technological advancements, vortex tube refrigeration can be effectively used in place of conventional refrigeration systems. In this paper, comparative study has been done on regular air conditioner and environment friendly refrigeration system. A model is designed and constructed, in the laboratory, for the experiment on the vortex cooling system incorporating the thermoelectric module. Test parameters are the cold fraction from 0 to 1 and an inlet air pressure of 4 bars.
