Author(s) : ASHRAE, BECKER B. R., FRICKE B. A.

Type of monograph: Book, Guide/Handbook


This guide discusses facility specification, including storage conditions, storage capacity, storage arrangements, facility configuration and layout, and site planning. It presents basic information on the design of refrigerated storage facility structures, including the design of support structures, walls, roofs, floors, doors, and docks. Particular attention is paid to the design of insulation and vapour retarders. Refrigeration system design is discussed in detail, including load calculations, system types and components, refrigerants, controls and instrumentation, blast coolers and freezers, and cryogenics. A discussion of refrigerated storage facility management is presented, including commissioning and training, inspection and maintenance, life-cycle costing, and energy strategies. The guide is the result of ASHRAE Research Project 1214.
