New publications: Energy Savings

The IIR has published a new version of its guide Saving Energy in Refrigeration, Air-Conditioning and Heat-Pump Technology; the goal of this completely revised version prepared by Forbes Pearson and several IIR experts and launched during the Bali conference on climate change is to provide practical ways of minimizing the energy consumption of refrigerating systems. These solutions apply to the design, operation and maintenance of the various components (compressors, condensers, evaporators, expansion devices, etc.) and take refrigerant selection into account. Several practical cases of highly energy-efficient systems are presented as well as an extensive bibliography. Order the English version: A French version will be available at a later date.
