Product Description

From the Back Cover

State-of-the-art information and data for today's most efficient industrial refrigeration systems. Drawing from the best of the widely dispersed literature in the field and the author's vast professional knowledge and experience, here is today's most exhaustive coverage of the fundamentals, design, installation, and operation of industrial refrigeration systems. Industrial Refrigeration Handbook details the latest industry changes caused by the coversion from CFCs to non-ozone-depleting refrigerants and the development of microprocessors and new secondary coolants. Also examined in depth are: Multistate Systems--Commonly used in low-temperature systems. Compressors, Evaporators, and Condensers--Essential system components. Piping, Vessels, Valves and Refrigerant Controls--The 'glue' that connects the components. Liquid Recirculation--A popular method of distributing refrigerants to various locations throughout the plant. Refrigeration Load Calculations--Crucial to proper system design. Refrigeration and Freezing of Food--today's most significant application. Safety Procedures--Especially for systems using ammonia. Offering a rare compilation of thermodynamic data on the most-used industrial refrigerants, Industrial Refrigeration Handbook is a one-stop source of vital information and guidance for every practitioner in the field.

I enjoyed reading this book as a more intermediate industrial Mechanic, but for that price I expected a book with glossy pictures. I feel the book was over priced for a bunch of pages with drawings. Just a few black and white pics of equipment, and lots of complicated other stuff. The best pic was the cover. To really teach somebody this field you need to be a lot more visual.
I wouldn't recommend this book to a beginner. It would be a bit frustrating. But for someone who just wants a reference book with lots of useful information I think this book is for you.

I have covered this book in length-no other book or handbook comes close in terms of simplicity of it's explaination. The latest ASHRAE Refrigeration Handbook is a good reference to have when using this book as there are cross references.Value for money and looking forward to the next book that would be specific on Ammonia Refrigeration Systems design.

Best Book on Industrial Refrigeration Systems Sept. 13 2006
By Magickal Merlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's an oldie,but a goodie! It's still useful ,relevant and dependable.For readers who want the kindergarten pictorial paperback,here you will be greatly disappointed. It does have clear schematical drawings and diagrams,in no-nonsense black and white.The formulas and equations are plentiful and helpful.It's just the best handbook on all aspects and applications for workplace industrial refrigeration operations.I have not found another ,in this particular area,that is on par or better than this one.

Will Stoecker Sept. 1 2012

Format: Hardcover
Not only having used this book from almost day one in my career in the ammonia refrigeration field as well as having had the opportunity to work and learn from him in a week long course presented by the good folks from Kansas State University, allows me to say this to one and all, you NEED this book. There is so much excellent material that is covered in this book that is not available anywhere else. Stoecker was the leading expert on ammonia refrigeration during his lifetime. All I can say is thank you Will, from the bottom of my heart...
