One flick that turns up every fall is called “Love at the Thanksgiving Parade.” One scene is supposed to take place in late November in Chicago. The good-looking guy and good-looking girl are shopping at a supermarket. But there do not appear to be any doors at the front of the store.
Project Extends Cooling Capacity of the Largest Refrigeration System It Has Ever Built
January 20, 2014
Star Refrigeration designed and built Rogerstone Park’s existing refrigeration system in 1999 and extended the plant’s cooling capacity in 2005. In 2013, Star was again chosen to further extend the refrigeration capacity as part of an expansion plan at the site.
When refrigeration systems are exposed to low-ambient conditions, the condensing pressure (head pressure) will fall. If the head pressure gets too low, the metering device will not have enough pressure drop across it to operate properly.
Any time an oil pressure control shuts down a compressor, the cause of the shutdown must be identified. The tripped control is a warning of another existing problem. Simply resetting the control will not solve the problem.
The suction line of a refrigeration system is normally insulated with a flexible, closed-cell elastomeric material. Insulating the suction line is done to prevent condensate from developing and dripping off. It also limits the amount of heat added to the refrigerant as it travels back to the compressor.
