Abstract

See full text

A two-pass evaporator suitable for use in an automobile includes various pressure drop devices to aliquot refrigerant into tubes that make up the two-pass evaporator. The two-pass evaporator includes a first pressure-drop device configured to receive and expand a liquid phase refrigerant into a first mixture of two-phase refrigerant; and a second pressure-drop device configured to receive and expand the first mixture of two-phase refrigerant into a second mixture of two-phase refrigerant and aliquot the second mixture of two-phase refrigerant to the first end of the first plurality of tubes. The two-pass evaporator includes a transition manifold that may house a flow-modulation plate disposed therein and configured to segregate the transition manifold into an upstream portion and a downstream portion. The flow-modulation device works in conjunction with the upstream pressure drop devices to aliquot refrigerant from the first plurality of tubes to the second plurality of tubes.
