Refrigeration Systems and Applications Second Edition By Ibrahim Dincer and Mehmet Kanoglu

Preface Refrigeration is an amazing area where science and engineering meet for solving the humankind’s cooling and refrigeration needs in an extensive range of applications, ranging from the cooling of electronic devices to food cooling, and has a multidisciplinary character, involving a combination of several disciplines, including mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry, food engineering, civil engineering and many more. The refrigeration industry has drastically expanded during the past two decades to play a significant role in societies and their economies. Therefore, the economic impact of refrigeration technology throughout the world…

Industrial Refrigeration Handbook Stoecker By Wilbert F. Stoecker

Introduction Both air conditioning and industrial refrigeration have a common objective, cooling some substance. Both types of systems are constructed of common hardware compressors, heat exchangers, fans, pumps, pipe, duct, and controls. The predominant working fluids are air, water, and refrigerants. A refrigeration system is an integral part of both systems. While much is shared by both fields, there are enough differences in the systems, components, design practices, and business methods to justify the separate treatment of industrial refrigeration. By almost every standard, the size of the comfort air conditioning…

HVAC Systems Design Handbook Fourth Edition By Roger W.Haines and C.Lewis Wilson

Introduction This chapter is devoted to ‘‘fundamental’’ fundamentals—certain principles which lay the foundation for what is to come. Starting with the original author’s suggested thought process for analyzing typical problems, the reader is then exposed to a buzzword of our time: value engineering. Next follows a discussion of codes and regulations, political criteria which constrain potential design solutions to the bounds of public health and welfare, and sometimes to special interest group sponsored legislation. The final sections of the chapter offer a brief review of the basic physics of heating,…
