SECTION II EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
1-10. EOUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES AND FEATURES
a. Characteristics. The Keco Model F500ORE, is a self-contained, electric, three phase, motor driven, panel-
mounted refrigeration unit used with a prefabricated panel type refrigerator. It requires a 208/230 volt ac, 50/60 Hertz
b. Capabilities. The unit is capable of starting and operating in ambient temperature of 0F to 125 F (-17C to
520 C) and to automatically maintain a refrigerator temperature of 0 F to 35F (-17C to 20 C).
c. Features. The portion of the condensing unit exposed to weather is capable of operating m rainfall of three
inches per hour without functional damage or impaired operation This unit is designed to use R-134a refrigerant.
1-11. LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS
CONTROL BOX ASSEMBLY. Houses the automatic and manual electrical control components.
EVAPORATOR COIL . Absorbs heat from the air being circulated through the refrigerator enclosure
causing the low pressure liquid refrigerant in the coil to evaporate.
COMPRESSOR. Moves the refrigerant through the refrigeration system by raising the pressure of the
incoming gas from the evaporator coil and discharging it as a high pressure gas.
the gas to condense into a high pressure liquid.
AC MOTOR. Drives the air handling components.
EVAPORATOR FAN. Circulates air through the refrigerator and across the evaporator coil.
CONDENSER FAN. Circulates ambient, outside air, across the condenser coil.
DUAL PRESSURE CONTROL SWITCH. Provides over/under pressure protection for the refrigeration
system The switch has a manual reset for overpressure conditions.
DIFFERENTIAL OIL PRESSURE SWITCH. Provides protection against loss of lubricating oil in the
compressor. The switch has a manual reset for low oil conditions.
