The 13th Annual Research and Technology Forum, hosted by the Industrial Refrigeration Consortium, will take place May 8-9 at the Pyle Center on the campus of the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Billed as a collaborative effort between the University of Wisconsin in Madison and industry, the IRC focuses on improving the safety, efficiency and productivity of industrial refrigeration systems and technologies.

Technical session topics during the two day-conference include mechanical integrity best practices, machinery room ventilation, regulatory issues, refrigerated facility design, emerging trends in food pathogens and food safety, liquid overfeed systems, refrigerant detection systems and back-to-basics sessions.
