Compressed by the compressor 1 hot pair of refrigerant through the heating pipe 8 with the electromagnetic valve 7 defrost enter the condenser 2, where the resulting condensate through the filter-drier 10 enters the capillary tube 3, ruspolia evaporator 5, the refrigerant from the capillary tube 3 is supplied to the internal volume of the coiled tube evaporator 5 and begins to rapidly boil, taking heat from the cooled volume 12 and the capillary tube 3, moving in the opposite direction. The vapors of the refrigerant through the suction pipe 4 are received in the compressor 1, and the excess liquid refrigerant accumulates in dokoptili 11 and the cycle repeats.

If necessary, defrost coil-tube evaporator 5, turns on the electromagnetic valve 7 defrost. Hot saturated vapors of the refrigerant bypassing the condenser 2 through section 6 of the pipeline come to the end of the coiled tube evaporator 5, where it is condensed, intense giving the evaporator 5 heat. The resulting condensate fills decimater 11, and excess halon together with pairs enters into the suction pipe 4. On the site of the regenerative heat exchanger 9, which is located in a sealed, a pair of halon time taking some of the heat pipe 6, and fed to the compressor 1. The cycle is repeated until a complete defrost.
