Meetings Information

Orlando Meeting, January 2016

SEMINAR 37 (INTERMEDIATE), Best Practices in Manufacturing, Field Installation and Servicing Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Systems
Cosponsored with:
Refrigeration Committee, TCs 3.3, 9.3, 10.7 and 8.11
The efficient, reliable and environmentally sound operation of refrigeration and air-conditioningsystems depends to a large extent on the presence of moisture, non-condensables, contaminants and refrigerant leaks. Good practices have been established over the years, yet time and cost-reduction pressures often lead to questioning some of these practices, such as minimizing component exposure to ambient before assembly and installation, brazing with inert gas, leak elimination and deep evacuation before charging with the proper amount of fresh refrigerant. This seminar illustrates the best practices with respect to the system chemistry and material compatibility in refrigeration systems.
