Polyguard manufactures RG-2400, a gel product designed specifically for use on ammonia refrigeration piping to prevent CUI. Its relatively low level of surface preparation compares favorably with the installed cost of an epoxy paint, including the material and labor.
A M King, a fully integrated design-build firm, has been recognized with an award from the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) for its work on Aldi Inc.’s regional headquarters and distribution center in Dinwiddie County, Va.
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.
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.
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.
