Clearance seal compressors with linear motor drives part II: experimental evaluation of an oil-free compressor

Abstract:

Oil-free compressors are required for various applications, including cryocoolers and refrigeration systems that use compact evaporators. A novel low-cost moving magnet oil-free linear compressor is described here, and follows a companion paper on the linear motor system. The experimental apparatus to evaluate the thermodynamic performance of the linear compressor is comparatively straightforward, but the data analysis is involved, since key measurements have to be corrected for the phase res...
