Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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."

Book News Annotation:

The new edition of textbook introducing the foundations of refrigeration theory. The material covers the refrigeration cycle, component design, and system operation on a slightly more advanced level than is normally found in an introductory text. The science behind the method is presented as a necessary tool for building analytic skills for the determining of system malfunctions and inefficiencies.

Synopsis:

This book provides a detailed, applications-oriented treatment of the mechanical refrigeration cycle, associated equipment, component design, and system operation. It teaches users 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. A four-part organization covers mechanical refrigeration and food preservation, the thermodynamic processes of refrigeration systems, ideal and real refrigeration processes, and refrigeration system components. For individuals studying for a career in the refrigeration field.
