State-of-the-art information and data for today's most efficient industrial refrigeration systems. Drawing from the best of the widely dispersed literature in the field and the author's vast professional knowledge and experience, here is today's most exhaustive coverage of the fundamentals, design, installation, and operation of industrial refrigeration systems. Industrial Refrigeration Handbook details the latest industry changes caused by the coversion from CFCs to non-ozone-depleting refrigerants and the development of microprocessors and new secondary coolants. Also examined in depth are: Multistate Systems—Commonly used in low-temperature systems. Compressors, Evaporators, and Condensers—Essential system components. Piping, Vessels, Valves and Refrigerant Controls—The 'glue' that connects the components. Liquid Recirculation—A popular method of distributing refrigerants to various locations throughout the plant. Refrigeration Load Calculations—Crucial to proper system design. Refrigeration and Freezing of Food—today's most significant application. Safety Procedures—Especially for systems using ammonia. Offering a rare compilation of thermodynamic data on the most-used industrial refrigerants, Industrial Refrigeration Handbook is a one-stop source of vital information and guidance for every practitioner in the field.
