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.

HASH(0xa0e31db0) out of 5 stars 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.

I was very glad to see the examples in the book were in SI units since I was not born in 1800's. If you are novice at the subject the explanation & examples are very good to learn from scratch. Otherwise very handy as a reference book with industry related examples. If you study this book you will be a smart as white rat.
