Abstract
A diagnosis of the refrigerant flows in a refrigerator was carried out by real-time neutron radiography. The thermal neutron radiography sys tem of JRR-3M in Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute and the real-t ime image processing system developed by Musashi Institute of Technolo gy were used. From evaporating flows in the evaporator, condensing flo ws in the condenser, flashing flows in the capillary tube and flows in the accumulator were visualized and the dynamic behaviors under pract ical conditions were clarified. In the case of the capillary tube of 0 .8 mm i.d., a cooled-CCD camera was utilized.
