9780130272706: Principles of Refrigeration

For courses in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, HVAC System Design, and Principles of Heating/Ventilating/Ac/Refrigeration in two-year college departments of HVAC or four-year M.E. or M.E.T. departments.

This text provides a detailed, applications-oriented treatment of the mechanical refrigeration cycle, associated equipment, component design, and system operation. It teaches students how processes can be broken down into fundamental principles so that they can develop analytical skills, correctly analyze and troubleshoot systems, and embark upon successful careers as technicians, technologists, and engineers.

From the Back Cover:

Principles of Refrigeration provides comprehensive coverage of refrigeration theory, components, and systems analysis and design. For both students and professionals, this book presents the science behind the operation of refrigeration systems as a method for building solid analytical skills, which will set the student/technician apart when it comes to understanding and troubleshooting system malfunctions, inefficiencies, and service requirements.

Key features of this edition:

  • The use of a dual system of units: the customary American system as well as the SI system.
  • The basic science of thermodynamics, heat transfer, mechanics, and applied physics has been expanded with better explanations and examples.
  • Fundamental principles are applied to the refrigeration cycles to show how changes in system variables are transferred throughout the system.
  • Many sections have been reorganized and rewritten to improve the development and flow of concepts. Longer chapters have been divided into more manageable units.
  • Much of the mathematics has been moved to the end of each chapter, in a section called "Optional Analysis."
