The 51st Industrial Refrigeration Workshop will be held in Charlotte, NC, Feb. 19-23. The one-week workshop is sponsored by Kansas State University and the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration.

According to the organizers, the workshop will cover industrial refrigeration as practiced in food freezing, refrigeration, and in other low-temperature applications. A systematic study is made of the technical background, the practice, and the latest developments in low-temperature refrigeration.

The course is designed for engineers and supervisors employed by equipment manufacturers, design firms, refrigerated warehouses, food processors, contractors and chemical firms. The course is also intended for designers and builders of new or enlarged plants, supervisors of plant operations, engineers for manufacturers who will learn how their components fit into systems, engineers and managers either new to the industrial refrigeration field, or veteran engineers and managers seeking a refresher.

Topics will include refrigerant properties, single- and two-stage refrigeration cycles, load calculations, construction of refrigerated buildings, liquid recirculation systems, reciprocating and screw compressors, performance and selection of evaporator coils, condensers, energy conservation, and more.

Participants may receive a Continuing Education Certificate reporting 35 contact hours, which will provide documentation for engineering (or other) Professional Development Hour (PDH) or Continuing Education Unit (CEU) requirements.
