BD35 daily test Performance?
« on: July 26, 2015, 09:44:59 am »

QUESTION:
How do I know if my BD35 compressor is operating efficiently?
ANSWER
The BD 35 amperage draw is determined by compressor speed and how often it cycles off and on in 24 hours. It is Desirable to see one complete cycle from compressor, start till the next time it starts, to resulting in compressor running less than 50% of the time.
 
The figures below are from my book 12/24 volt refrigeration small box poorly insulated at 80 degrees controlled ambient temperature.
Compressor Speed 2000 Rpm, amperage 2.4, compressor cycles per 24 hours 65,daily amp-hrs 33
Compressor Speed  2500 Rpm, amperage 3.5, compressor cycles per 24 hours 77, daily amp-hrs 43.3
Compressor Speed 3000 Rpm, amperage 3.9,  compressor cycles per 24 hours 86, daily amp-hrs 46.3
Compressor Speed 3500 Rpm, amperage 4.4,  compressor cycles per 24 hours 90, daily amp-hrs 49.2
