Enhancing AC System Performance with a Suction Line Heat Exchanger with Refrigerant HFO-1234yf 2011-01-0133

An experimental investigation has been carried out to quantify the performance enhancements with a suction line heat exchanger (SLHX) in an AC system with HFO-1234yf as the working fluid. An off-the-shelf double pipe cross fluted SLHX is used for this investigation. System level bench tests are conducted with an AC system from a 2009 MY mid-sized sedan. The test results shows that the AC system performance with HFO-1234yf can be improve up to 8~9% in comparison to a baseline system without a SLHX.
