An online course held in two-hour blocks over five days, is focused on improving attendees’ understanding of engineered safety-relief systems for industrial refrigeration systems. Presented by the Industrial Refrigeration Consortium, the course will be held daily on December 12-16 at 2 to 4 p.m. ET.

Successful completion of the workshop also will grant attendees access to the IRC’s web-based safety-relief systems analysis tool. The software allows users to input data and analyze, engineer and document safety-relief systems for industrial refrigeration applications.

Course content focuses on the principles and practices of engineering safety-relief systems, including:

  • Codes and standards related to safety-relief systems.
  • Key aspects of engineering-code-compliant relief systems.
  • Capacity determination for nonstandard equipment like heat exchangers.
  • Methods for proper sizing of relief-vent piping, including headered vent systems.

Delivered over the web in an instructor-led, live format, the course will be presented by IRC’s Douglas T. Reindl, Ph.D., P.E. and Todd B. Jekel, Ph.D., P.E. For a complete course agenda or to register, visit
