Abstract : The purpose of the present study is to develop a setup of a vapor compression refrigeration system operating on low GWP refrigerant i.e. Refrigerant R134-a. Also the important part evaporator construction for maintaining future high- performance microprocessor chips within an acceptable operating temperature range. This requires removing a large quantity of heat, from smaller areas. The present study reports on an experimental evaluation of flow boiling of R134a inside a rectangular microchannel heat sink. The copper test section of parallel rectangular channels is used for the study. The experiments are to be performed with a direct circulation of refrigerant through the microchannel. The wall heat flux can be increased from 12 kW m−2 until reaching critical heat flux.
