Explain Refrigerant speaks to what is refrigerant, types of refrigerant and why use refrigerant.
Ice was the earliest known refrigerant and was used to remove heat from ice sheds from inside to outside therefore preserving food for a longer period of time. It is to put it simply moving heat from location to another location.
In today’s world the heat is transported by the means of mechanized equipment. Refrigerant is used in air conditioning equipment, freezers, refrigerators and even cyrogenics.
The process of refrigeration has had a great effect on the settlement of people throughout various areas of the world. The introduction of mobile refrigeration equipment food stuffs can easily be moved from region to region therefore directly affecting how countries are populated and settled.
It is doubtful that civilization would have been able to flourish and the world population increase to seven billion without the advent of refrigeration. The consumption of meat, fowl and fish woild be curtailed as people could only eat what was recently killed. Smoking and salting of meat helped much to increase the storage time of this food but was a time consuming and limited to small amounts of food.
