This guide book of fundamentals gives practical instructions on the theories and pitfalls of refrigeration science as applied to air conditioning systems for the air-conditioning and refrigeration industry. It sets out to "unravel refrigeration's mysteries".

Extract from the table of contents: heat and energy; latent heat, and the operation of a refrigerant; the pressure-enthalpy diagram; evaporators and compressors; compressor performance; condensers and liquid receivers; evaporator liquid food control; refrigeration system ancillaries; system lubrication and compressor malfunction; compressor electrical failure, and control considerations.
