Any idea what a vapor compression refrigeration cycle is?

Description

This lecture covers the various types of refrigeration that are available. However, the focus is on the most common type of refrigeration used in breweries: vapor compression refrigeration. The fundamentals of primary and secondary refrigerants, compressors, condensers and evaporators are clarified, and the advantages and disadvantages of centralized and decentralized configurations are discussed. The content expert will also briefly introduce absorption refrigeration technology.
