Title: Water removal enhancement device for refrigeration system

Abstract: A water removal enhancement device applicable to an evaporator of a refrigeration system includes a pulse power supply, an electrode mounted under the evaporator, and metallic needles formed on the bottom of the evaporator. The needles of the evaporator and the electrode are electrically connected to the power of the pulse power supply, so that negative (or positive) electricity is charged to the evaporator and the needles, while the positive (or negative) power of the pulse power supply is charged to the electrode. The condensed water formed on the evaporator and falling to the needles is therefore easily attracted by the electrode via electric discharge effect on tip points and easily drop from the evaporator to the electrode and drain away.
