ANSI/IIAR 7, “Developing Operating Procedures for Closed-Circuit Ammonia Refrigeration Systems,” defines the minimum requirements for developing operating procedures for closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems. First issued in June 2013, work began on periodic maintenance of this standard in February 2017 and was completed in April 2019.
The Ammonia Refrigeration Foundation is accepting applications for the 2019 Founders Engineering Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded each year to up to three collegiate juniors exhibiting exceptional character and an interest in pursuing an engineering or related technical degree leading to a career in the refrigeration field.
Engineers, end users, wholesalers, manufacturers and contractors involved in natural refrigeration using ammonia and carbon dioxide will gather, learn and share at the annual IIAR conference in Phoenix on March 3-6.
A retrofit project that involved converting an ammonia-based refrigeration plant to heat a large quantity of cleaning water for the largest poultry meat producer in Northern Ireland earned GEA an industry award from a European publication.
On Demand If your facility uses ammonia refrigeration system, are you properly prepared for any hazards you may encounter, from fire to flood to ammonia release? Emergency prefire prevention plan, evacuation plan, emergency action plan, emergency response plan — this webinar will explore which regulations require these various plans, and what should be included in each plan.
This course will teach you techniques to size and properly lay out system components. You will expand your knowledge about ammonia refrigeration and better understand design principles, safety precautions, and best practices.
Learn about the Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) so you can effectively identify, evaluate, and control hazards in ammonia refrigerated facilities. Attend and receive the knowledge and tools to move beyond canned PHA checklists to increase the safety of ammonia refrigerated facilities.
Anhydrous ammonia is a "natural refrigerant" that does not harm the ozone layer, has no global warming potential, and is popular because of its environmental friendliness and unmatched thermodynamic properties.
Learn the latest recommended practices to manage the mechanical integrity of industrial ammonia refrigeration systems. The course will emphasize refrigerant piping and pressure vessels but mechanical integrity practices for other components will be presented as well. You will be able to immediately apply what you learn in this course to ensure the ongoing reliability and safety of industrial ammonia refrigeration systems.
If you already know the basics of ammonia refrigeration systems, here is your opportunity to learn more! By examining real-world examples, this course will enhance your understanding of the principles and operation of ammonia refrigeration systems with a more in-depth coverage of the technology compared to the Introduction to Ammonia Refrigeration Systems course.
