Industrial Refrigeration Workshop


Workshop Objectives

A one-week intensive short course on industrial refrigeration as practiced in food freezing, refrigeration, and in other low temperature applications. A systematic study of the technical background, the practice, and the latest developments in low-temperature refrigeration.

  • Provide the participants with much of the knowledge that they would obtain by longer experience in the industry – often through the agony of costly mistakes.
  • Provide a thorough technical grounding in topics crucial to industrial refrigeration.
  • Benefit from the experience of a group of industry experts.
  • Learn the latest research and development pertinent to industrial refrigeration.

Topics to be Covered

  • Refrigerant properties
  • Single- and two-stage refrigeration cycles
  • Load calculations
  • Construction of refrigerated buildings
  • Liquid re-circulation systems
  • Reciprocating and screw compressors
  • Performance and selection of evaporator coils
  • Condensers
  • Energy conservation
  • Vessel sizing
  • Liquid pumps
  • Pipe sizing
  • Safety
  • Control of both halocarbon and ammonia systems
A thread that will extend through the week is the design of an ammonia refrigeration system serving a food distribution center incorporating selected low-charge technology.Refrigeration equipment and systems used in this facility are typical of a wide variety of applications.
