Why liquid ammonia is used as a refrigerant in ice plants ? 

Asked by chumki.banerjee001 | 28 Jan, 2019, 10:11: PM
Expert Answer
Liquid ammonia is used as a refrigerant in ice plants because,
  • Liquid ammonia has a high latent heat of vaporisation.
            When liquid ammonia vapourises it absorbs heat from the surrounding.
  • It is highly volatile.
  • It easily liquifies under a pressure at room temperature.

Hence liquid ammonia is used as a refrigerant in ice plants.
