This course will provide the student with information concerning commercial multi-plex refrigeration systems used in a supermarket environment. An advanced look at evaporator and compressor balance will be combined with discussion on system efficiency. Participants will become familiar with the installation, start-up, service and repair of air-conditioning equipment. Refrigeration chillers and their operation will be described, inclusive of evaporative condensers and cooling towers. This offering will include field trips out into industry to observe the above listed equipment in operation. This course continues with food process control and refrigerated storage for design and calculation of coolers and freezers. Design considerations involving low temperature systems, as well as supermarket multi-temperature/compressor systems will be discussed. Energy efficient heat pump design and operational sequencing using various heat-sink mediums will be discussed. This course includes a look at the B-52 mechanical code specifications involving safety, installation and operation of various refrigerant types. The course culminates with a major refrigeration cooler/freezer design project.
