The 2020 IIAR Conference & Heavy Equipment Expo will be held at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida from March 15-18, 2020. Billed as the largest exposition dedicated to the natural refrigeration industry, the event offers the opportunity for manufacturers, contractors, trainers, and other service providers to learn about the industry’s latest innovations and products.

With over 1,700 in attendance last year, the Expo offers the ability to meet with others in the natural refrigeration community, as well as experience benefits such as:

  • Networking within the industry by building new partnerships and engaging potential clients;
  • Learning and discussing the most groundbreaking industrial trends at the world’s largest meeting dedicated to the natural refrigeration industry;
  • Attending more than 12 hours of engaging continuing education and professional development sessions; and
  • Experiencing the Expo and seeing the latest in industrial and commercial refrigeration technologies, including complete package systems, compressors, and other heavy equipment.​

The Expo’s comprehensive educational program includes topics ranging from methods for saving energy in cold storage warehouses to proper installation and maintenance practices for VFDs to a review of current codes and regulations.

This year’s Sunday Education Program will focus on the application and design of secondary coolant systems. As end users seek alternatives to replace their HFC based systems, or reduce the charge of their ammonia based systems, the trend for using reduced charge ammonia and propane as a “high side” refrigerant in combination with secondary systems is becoming more widespread.

This seminar is intended to familiarize end users and designers with the range and properties of secondary coolants available along with their applications. The seminar will also cover pumping and piping system design techniques that can minimize energy costs. Another topic included will be the use of CO2 as a “volatile brine.” Instructors will demonstrate engineering calculations and case study examples of successful applications will be provided.
