The 2010 ASHRAE Handbook: Refrigeration covers the refrigeration equipment and systems for applications other than human comfort. This book includes information on cooling, freezing, and storing food; industrial applications of refrigeration; and low-temperature refrigeration. Primarily a reference for the practicing engineer, this volume is also useful for anyone involved in cooling and storage of food products.
An accompanying CD-ROM (also available for purchase separately) contains all the volume’s chapters in both I-P and SI units.
This edition includes two new chapters:
Chapter 3, Carbon Dioxide Refrigeration Systems, describes the history of this “natural refrigerant” and why it is the subject of renewed interest today. The chapter contains discussion and diagrams on CO2 refrigerant applications, system design, equipment, safety, lubricants, commissioning, operation, and maintenance.
Chapter 50, Terminology of Refrigeration, lists some of the common terms used in industrial refrigeration systems, particularly systems using ammonia as the refrigerant.
