The next offering of the Industrial Refrigeration Workshop will be February 17-21, 2014 in Charlotte, North Carolina. This one-week course is intended for those who make decisions such as the purchase of new components, and the enlargement or modification of the plant. Manufacturers of components learn how their products fit into the entire system.
Two coordinators, Don Fenton of Kansas State University and Gary Wilson of the University of North Carolina - Charlotte, provide the fundamentals on which five experts from the industrial refrigeration field supply their practical experience. A thread that runs through the course is the design of a facility, an ammonia–carbon dioxide cascade system, which will be a refrigerated distribution center. Carbon dioxide is a low-temperature natural refrigerant that is receiving intense attention by industrial refrigeration designers.
The International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration and Kansas State University sponsor the workshop. Registration cost is $1450 handled by the Division of Continuing Education at Kansas State University (785) 532-5569. A discount of $50.00 is available to members of the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration.
