2/18/13 to 2/22/13
Hilton Charlotte Executive Park Hotel
Charlotte, N.C.
This is a one-week intensive short course on industrial refrigeration as practiced in food freezing, refrigeration, and in other low-temperature applications. A sy-tematic study is made of the technical background, the practice, and the latest developments in low-temperature refrigeration.

This class is intended for engineers and supervisors employed by equipment manufacturers, design firms, refrigerated warehouses, food processors, contractors, and chemical firms. The course is intended for designers and builders of new or enlarged plants, supervisors of plant operations, engineers for manufacturers who will learn how their components fit into systems, engineers and managers either new to the industrial refrigeration field, or veteran engineers and managers seeking a refresher. This workshop is intended for those making decisions concerning the plant or facility. The objectives of the class are to:
  • Provide the participants with much of the knowledge that they would obtain by longer experience in the industry;
  • Provide a thorough technical grounding in topics crucial to industrial refrigeration;
  • Benefit from the experience of a group of industry experts; and
  • Learn of the latest research and development pertinent to industrial refrigeration.

    Topics to be covered are refrigerant properties, single- and two-stage refrigeration cycles, load calculations, construction of refrigerated buildings, liquid recirculation systems, reciprocating and screw compressors, performance and selection of evaporator coils, condensers, energy conservation, vessel sizing, liquid pumps, pipe sizing, safety, and control of both halocarbon and ammonia systems. A thread that will extend through the week is the design of a two-stage ammonia liquid recirculation system serving a food distribution center. Refrigeration equipment and systems used in this facility are typical of a wide variety of applications.

    CEUs are available. Participants may receive a Certificate of Participation reporting 35 contact hours, which will provide documentation for engineering (or other) Professional Development Hour (PDH) or Continuing Education Unit (CEU) requirements.

    The workshop is sponsored by Kansas State University and the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR).
