Title: Absorber of absorption system refrigerator

Abstract: The absorber for use in absorption chillers of the present invention comprises a plurality of cooling water pipes 2 extending horizontally in the interior of the absorber chamber. A plurality of flat heat transfer plates 1 are spaced apart from one another and arranged horizontally in a vertical position, and the plurality of cooling water pipes 2 extend through these heat transfer plates 1 perpendicular thereto. The pitch Pd of the plates 1 is 3 to 15 mm. Each heat transfer plate 1 is integrally formed on its upper end face with an absorbent receptacle 10 V-shaped in cross section and extending longitudinally of the upper end face. The bottom portion of the receptacle 10 is formed with two rows of absorbent holes 11 positioned upwardly of respective surfaces of the plate 1. The holes 11 of each row are spaced apart from one another longitudinally of the plate 1 and each have an outlet adjoining the surface of the plate 1. This enables an absorber to have a higher absorbing capacity than conventional absorbers.
