The Refrigeration Circuit and Compressor

How Does a Refrigerator Work?

Part I: The Refrigerant Circuit – Evaporative Cooling

In order to show how a cooling system functions, this film first explains the principle of evaporative cooling.
How does it look like in our refrigerator?
Here it is just this principle of the closed refrigerant circuit which is applied.
