    Book 2: Applied Concepts of Refrigeration


    Applied Concepts of Refrigeration covers refrigeration topics in detail and provides a mathematical understanding of how refrigeration systems work.


    The concepts in the first unit of this book establish the fundamental understanding needed for refrigeration. The chapters in the first unit cover mass, force, acceleration, work, pressure, power, and energy, along with the calculations to support your understanding of these concepts. The next topic defines the laws and terminology of thermodynamics. Subsequently, this book details the process of heat transfer and explains how heat exchangers are designed and constructed. This unit also introduces you to refrigeration basics with some mathematical concepts to aid in your understanding.


    The next unit provides a comprehensive description of compression refrigeration systems. This unit also covers system control and plant operation, and a later chapter discusses the refrigeration plant maintenance involved in the operation of the plant. A subsequent chapter takes a look at the absorption refrigeration system and explores how the system functions and where it is used in the industry. The book concludes with a chapter on ammonia refrigerant safety.

    By the end of this book, you will be able to perform calculations that involve basic physics and thermodynamics concepts. You will also have a comprehensive understanding of heat transfer, heat exchangers, refrigeration systems and their components, and individual refrigerants, and you will understand how these aspects function together to remove heat from a product or space.

    Book 3: Refrigeration Plant Support Systems

    The Refrigeration Plant Support Systems book is divided into six units and will help you comprehend how secondary systems make the operation of the refrigeration plant possible.

    The first unit presents fluid handling technology in two chapters, which provide a detailed look at piping and valves. The next unit discusses communications, plant maintenance, and administration. The third unit highlights welding processes and inspection. Next, the book covers electricity over three chapters and includes the basics of electricity, DC motor characteristics, and AC motor speed control. Another unit describes pumps and compressors, with two chapters on the various types of pumps and their operation and maintenance. The following two chapters discuss compressor classifications and examine how compressors are operated and maintained. This book concludes with three chapters on water treatment as it applies to cooling and recirculation systems including condensers and cooling towers.

    By the end of this book you will have a comprehensive understanding of how secondary support systems provide an environment for the refrigeration plant to operate effectively and efficiently.

    Book 4: Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)

    This book highlights the importance of maintaining consistent air temperature, cleanliness, and humidification for the comfort of people working or living in buildings such as office or apartment buildings.

    The first unit in this book consists of five chapters, the first of which covers air conditioning. The second chapter describes the purpose and principles of humidification. The third chapter discusses fans for air distribution, and is followed by a chapter on ventilation and air filter types. The last chapter in this unit explains HVAC duct system classifications.

    The second unit is about environmental systems. This unit also consists of five chapters and covers topics including air psychrometric properties and how to apply the psychometric chart. This unit guides you through cooling systems, exploring how heat gains and losses affect these systems, and describing the recovery methods used in the control of these systems. This chapter also provides an understanding of the design and function of HVAC control strategy.

    The final unit in this book consists of two chapters that cover lubrication and bearings.

    By the end of this book you will have the knowledge required to successfully operate a HVAC system. You will also understand the selection of lubricants for bearings throughout a refrigeration plant.
