How Does it Work?
It all starts with a small flame which heats the boiler. Ammonia gas is boiled out of the water solution and moves up to the condenser. In the condenser the ammonia gas cools to form a liquid, releasing its heat. The liquid ammonia moves to the evaporator where it expands to a gas and at the same time becomes very cold. The evaporator is found on the inside of the freezer and refrigerator sections. The ammonia gas moves down to the absorber where it is absorbed into a water solution. The water solution moves to the boiler, where it is heated again and the process repeats.
