Drawing from the best of the widely dispersed literature in the field and the authorÕs vast professional knowledge and experience, here is todayÕs most exhaustive, one-stop coverage of the fundamentals, design, installation, and operation of industrial refrigeration systems. Detailing the industry changes caused by the conversion from CFCs to non-ozone-depleting refrigerants and by the development of microprocessors and new secondary coolants, Industrial Refrigeration Handbook also examines multistage systems; compressors, evaporators, and condensers; piping, vessels, valves and refrigerant controls; liquid recirculation; refrigeration load calculations; refrigeration and freezing of food; and safety procedures. Offering a rare compilation of thermodynamic data on the most-used industrial refrigerants, the Handbook is a mother lode of vital information and guidance for every practitioner in the field.
Wilbert F. Stoecker is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the author of McGraw-HillÕs Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, now in its second edition. For 12 years, he has been a science adviser for the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration as well as a member of...
