On the other ha nd, it would be really cool if they could somehow use the waste propane to power a compressor that could use conventional coolant to perform a second layer of additional cooling. Now that would be an interesting use of resources and potentially quite efficient as you would be utilizing both energy from the state change/decompression as well as the stored energy in the propane which I don't think is done commonly (although I could be wrong about this, I don't know a ton about propane appliances).
Yeah, that was what I was wondering too. After the propane expander in the video, there probably is little (if any) pressure left in the propane line. Probably not enough flow to power anything more than the few flames that we are seeing.(I didn't watch the video), propane is generally stored somewhat compressed, I don't think it would make much sense to compress it more before running it through the lines. If you were going to have a compressor, you'd probably want a closed loop. Propane does work as a refrigerant, IIRC, it's a potential replacement for whatever the current replacement for freon is.
You could maybe burn the waste propane in a generator to power the PC, but I don't know if the fueling rate for the generator would be enough to keep the PC cool.
Totally different.Same principle as gas refrigerators, really.
R-290 (Propane and don't forget the required propane accessories LoL) is mostly used for commercial refrigeration While R-600A (isobutane) is for domestic refrigeration devices and R-32 is Butane this is mostly for comfort cooling AKA Air-conditioningR290 is a propane based refrigerant and is used in a lot of applications
So much has changed due to environmental laws!R-290 (Propane and don't forget the required propane accessories LoL) is mostly used for commercial refrigeration While R-600A (isobutane) is for domestic refrigeration devices and R-32 is Butane this is mostly for comfort cooling AKA Air-conditioning
R-1234YF is for Motor vehicle AC
There are or were so many different refrigerant types all have their own properties and uses
Edit R-12 was used for MVAC then it was replaced by R-134A which was replaced by R-1234YF
R-12 Was also used for domestic refrigerators then it was R-134A and now R-600A is used
R-22 was used for AC then R-410A now either R-32 or R-454B
