### When the compressor is off and the system is up to the highest point of its operating range, the evaporator coil pressure should correspond to the

• A.

Compressor pressure

• B.

Condenser pressure

• C.

Air tmeperature in the box

• D.

Air temperature at the condenser

C. Air tmeperature in the box
Explanation
When the compressor is off and the system is up to the highest point of its operating range, the evaporator coil pressure should correspond to the air temperature in the box. This is because when the compressor is off, there is no refrigerant flow and therefore no pressure difference between the evaporator and condenser coils. The evaporator coil pressure will be equal to the pressure of the air inside the box, which is determined by the temperature of the air.

Rate this question:

• 28.

### When the temperature of a refirgerateed space goes down, the compressor will have

• A.

Less capacity because the suction gas gets thinner

• B.

More capacity because the suction gas gets thinner

• C.

Less capacity because the suction gas gets more dense

• D.

More capacity because the suction gas gets more dense

A. Less capacity because the suction gas gets thinner
Explanation
When the temperature of a refrigerated space goes down, the suction gas inside the compressor becomes thinner. This means that there is a decrease in the density of the gas. As a result, the compressor will have less capacity because the thinner gas will have a lower mass flow rate, leading to a decrease in the cooling capacity of the system. Therefore, the correct answer is less capacity because the suction gas gets thinner.

### What condensing temperature is normally maintained to obtain adequate pressure drops across an expansion valve?

• A.

95*F

• B.

105*F

• C.

115*F

• D.

125*F

B. 105*F
Explanation
To obtain adequate pressure drops across an expansion valve, a condensing temperature of 105Â°F is normally maintained. The pressure drop across the expansion valve is necessary for the refrigerant to undergo a phase change from a high-pressure liquid to a low-pressure vapor, which allows for cooling. If the pressure drop is too low, the refrigerant may not fully vaporize, leading to inefficient cooling. Conversely, if the pressure drop is too high, it can cause issues such as excessive noise, vibration, or even damage to the expansion valve. Therefore, maintaining a condensing temperature of 105Â°F helps to achieve the optimal pressure drop for efficient cooling.

Ther water flow is sifficient

• B.

There is too much water flow

• C.

There is not enough water flow

• D.

The cooling tower fan just cycled on

B. There is too much water flow
Explanation
If the temperature difference between the inlet and outlet water in a water-cooled system is lower than normal, it suggests that there is too much water flow. This means that the water is passing through the system too quickly, not allowing enough time for it to properly cool down. As a result, the temperature difference between the inlet and outlet water is reduced. To rectify this issue, the water flow needs to be adjusted to a more appropriate level to ensure efficient cooling.

Rate this question:

• 32.

### What is the normal maximum reduction of temperature in a cooling tower water if the ambient wet-bulb temperature is 85*F?

• A.

72*F

• B.

75*F

• C.

78*F

• D.

81*F

C. 78*F
Explanation
In a cooling tower, the maximum reduction of temperature is determined by the difference between the ambient wet-bulb temperature and the temperature of the water leaving the tower. The wet-bulb temperature represents the lowest temperature that can be achieved through evaporation. Therefore, if the ambient wet-bulb temperature is 85Â°F, the normal maximum reduction of temperature in the cooling tower water would be 78Â°F, as this represents the maximum potential for evaporation and cooling.

Low suction pressure and high discharge pressure

• B.

High suction pressure and low discharge pressure

• C.

Low suction pressure and low discharge pressure

• D.

High suction pressure and high discharge pressure

D. High suction pressure and high discharge pressure
Explanation
When a system is not equipped with an automatic expansion valve, high suction pressure and high discharge pressure are indications of an overcharge. This means that there is an excessive amount of refrigerant in the system, causing the pressure to rise in both the suction and discharge lines. This can lead to inefficient cooling and potential damage to the system components.

Rate this question:

• B.

A dirty coil and a high suction pressure

• C.

Too much airflow and a high suction pressure

• D.

Too much airflow and a fan running too slow

A. A dirty coil and a fan running too slow
Explanation
An inefficient evaporator can be caused by a dirty coil and a fan running too slow. A dirty coil reduces the heat transfer efficiency, making the evaporator less effective in cooling the air. Additionally, a fan running too slow can result in insufficient airflow across the coil, further reducing the cooling capacity. Both of these factors contribute to the inefficiency of the evaporator.

Rate this question:

• 35.

### What conditions are an indication of a low charge in a system that is not equipped with an automatic expansion valve?

• A.

Low suction pressure and high discharge pressure

• B.

High suction pressure and low discharge pressure

• C.

Low suction pressure and low discharge pressure

• D.

High suction prssure and high discharge pressure

C. Low suction pressure and low discharge pressure
Explanation
A low charge in a system without an automatic expansion valve can be indicated by low suction pressure and low discharge pressure. This means that there is not enough refrigerant in the system to maintain proper pressure levels during operation. Low suction pressure indicates a lack of refrigerant entering the compressor, while low discharge pressure suggests a reduced amount of refrigerant being pumped out of the compressor. Both of these conditions point towards a low charge in the system.

### When a partial restriction occurs in the liquid line, the point of the restriction will act like

• A.

An evaporator

• B.

A condenser

• C.

A compressor

• D.

An expansion device

D. An expansion device
Explanation
When a partial restriction occurs in the liquid line, the point of the restriction will act like an expansion device. This is because an expansion device is responsible for reducing the pressure of the refrigerant and controlling its flow into the evaporator. In the case of a partial restriction, the restricted point in the liquid line will cause a drop in pressure, similar to what an expansion device does. This drop in pressure allows the refrigerant to expand and evaporate, facilitating the cooling process.

Rate this question:

• 38.

### A compressor that is not pumping to full capacity will have

• A.

High suction and low head pressure

• B.

High suction and high heah pressure

• C.

Low suction and low head pressure

• D.

Low suction and high head pressure

A. High suction and low head pressure
Explanation
When a compressor is not pumping to full capacity, it means that it is not able to draw in and compress the refrigerant effectively. This results in high suction pressure, as the compressor is struggling to pull in enough refrigerant. On the other hand, the head pressure, which is the pressure of the refrigerant leaving the compressor, will be low because the compressor is not able to compress the refrigerant properly. Therefore, the correct answer is high suction and low head pressure.

### When the thermal bulb of an expansion valve is loose from the suction line, you would expect the

• A.

Suction line to be warmer than normal

• B.

Suction line to be colder than normal

• C.

Discharge line to be warmer than normal.

• D.

Discharge line to be colder than normal

B. Suction line to be colder than normal
Explanation
When the thermal bulb of an expansion valve is loose from the suction line, it can result in a loss of refrigerant flow control. This means that less refrigerant will be allowed into the evaporator coil, resulting in reduced cooling capacity. As a result, the suction line, which carries the cool refrigerant from the evaporator to the compressor, will be colder than normal. This is because there is less refrigerant flowing through the system to absorb heat from the surroundings.

A high-efficiency water filtration system can cause problems for an ice machine by decreasing the conductivity of the water. This can lead to issues such as poor ice quality, slower ice production, and potential damage to the ice machine components. Lower conductivity water may not be able to effectively transfer heat, affecting the ice-making process. Additionally, decreased conductivity can also impact the taste and clarity of the ice produced. Therefore, while high-efficiency water filtration systems are important, they can have negative effects on ice machines if they decrease the water conductivity.

### A refrigerator may have condensation (sweat) on the outside of the cabinet if the

• A.

Mullion heater is defective.

• B.

Defrost time clock is defective

• C.

Defrost termination switch is defective.

• D.

Evaporator fan motor is defective

A. Mullion heater is defective.
Explanation
If a refrigerator has condensation (sweat) on the outside of the cabinet, it indicates that the mullion heater is defective. The mullion heater is responsible for preventing condensation by maintaining the exterior surface of the refrigerator at a temperature above the dew point. If the mullion heater is not functioning properly, it fails to keep the surface warm, resulting in condensation forming on the outside of the cabinet.

### To verify that the refrigerant is boiling at the correct temperature for the low side of the system at a given load condition, you would use

• A.

• B.

• C.

• D.

All of the above

Explanation
To verify that the refrigerant is boiling at the correct temperature for the low side of the system at a given load condition, you would use the low-side gauge readings. This is because the low-side gauge provides information about the pressure and temperature of the refrigerant as it enters the evaporator coil. By monitoring the low-side gauge readings, you can ensure that the refrigerant is boiling at the correct temperature, which is crucial for efficient cooling and proper functioning of the system. The high-side gauge readings and ultralow pressure gauge readings may provide additional information, but they are not specifically used to verify the boiling temperature of the refrigerant on the low side.

### To check the relationship of the condensing refrigerant to the ambient air temperature, you would use

• A.

• B.

• C.

• D.

All of the above

Explanation
To check the relationship of the condensing refrigerant to the ambient air temperature, you would use the high-side gauge readings. The high-side gauge measures the pressure of the refrigerant after it has been compressed by the compressor. By comparing the high-side gauge readings with the ambient air temperature, you can determine if the condensing process is occurring effectively. If the high-side gauge readings are too high or too low in relation to the ambient air temperature, it may indicate a problem with the condenser or other components of the refrigeration system.
