The purpose of this paper is to calculate the cooling load in frozen shrimp cold storage, calculate the performance of the vapor compression cycle including mass flow rate, compressor power, and COP. This study uses a theoretical design method. The design of cold storage for shrimp commodity, with the capacity of one container, will be calculated how much cooling should be given so that the maximum cold storage efficiency is obtained. Design data obtained from observations in the field. When the research was conducted in April 2015. The calculation results show that the Refrigerant used is Refrigerant 12 (R-12), Cooling load = 14.3022 TR = 50.254 kW, Shrimp product = 12 tons = 12,000 kg, Cold storage temperature: 10 ° C, Superheated: 5 ° C, Sub cooled: 5 ° C, refrigerant temperature in the condenser: 35 ° C, refrigerant temperature in the evaporator: 5 ° C, condenser pressure: 0.80 MPa Pressure in the evaporator: 0.40 Bar and COP: 4.76.
