    Product Specifications ■ Evaporator 1. Role: As the low pressure liquid refrigerant flowed from capillary absorbs heat inside of the refrigerator, it becomes low pressure gas and refrigerate the foods. 2. Theory: The low pressure refrigerant flowed to evaporator operates cooling which takes ambient evaporated potential heat with maintaining the evaporation up to evaporate completely.
