From Mexico, to Burkina Faso, to Australia, the world’s first Refrigeration Day takes place today, June 26. The International Institute of Refrigeration — Europe’s independent intergovernmental science and technology based organization which promotes knowledge of refrigeration — spearheaded the development of the first World Refrigeration Day.
The AHR Expo (International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition) is accepting entries for the 2020 Innovation Awards. The annual competition honors the innovative and original products, systems and technologies — including systems and controls for industrial process applications — on display at AHR Expo. Exhibitors can submit new or upgraded products for consideration through August 6.
Hands-on sessions, workshops, technical presentations, manufacturer sessions, and 13 hours of exhibition hall time are among the highlights of the conference program planned for the 2019 RETA Conference. The 3.5-day conference, planned for October 8-11 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, is reportedly the largest gathering of refrigerating engineers and technicians that offers the length of educational and networking activities and events.
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 intelliGen is a factory-mounted electronic control solution for evaporators that provides automatic superheat adjustment, temperature control and intelligent defrost control capability for walk-in coolers and freezers.
Carrier Transicold Europe, located in Rueil-Malmaison, France, will collaborate with Chemours to specify and adopt an Opteon XL low global warming potential (GWP) hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) refrigerant to replace R-452A in transport refrigeration in 2021.
The pressure-and-temperature relationship for a specific refrigerant is the basis of the operation of our refrigeration system. In this webinar, held today at 2 p.m. (ET), we will spend time looking at the factors that affect the application of this basic principle. We will explain how pressure drop and static head pressure will affect the operation of your system.
Freeze drying is a dehydration technique commonly used in food processing as well as biological, pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. In these technical scenarios, the application of heat for evaporative drying will either degrade the material to be dried or change its form and structure (Zhang et al., 2018).
Refrigerant contractors and equipment owners seeking to drive down refrigerant emissions can find help in a no-cost, on-demand webinar. Leak detection systems manufacturer Bacharach Inc. recorded and analyzed more than 2.8 billion refrigerant leak samples to identify the five most common refrigerant leak types to watch out for.
GCAP's Ammonia Safety Day is June 14, 2018. Vendor and participant registration at this link. This will be the largest safety day to year and celebrating the 10-annual event and anticipated over 400 attendees. Limited seating for participants and vendors.
As the world’s leading event for research and industry covering all refrigeration technologies and applications in the HVACR sector (including cryogenics), ICR 2019 is setto welcome its largest audience to date.
