Which of the following statements about the shell and tube evaporator type is false?
a) It is also known as a chiller.
b) This type of evaporator cools mainly liquids.
c) The refrigerant is circulating in the shell in the flooded operation.
d) Refrigerant vapour is drawn out of the evaporator by the compressor.
