ASHRAE Publishes 2010 Refrigeration Handbook
June 29, 2010

The diversity of refrigeration from ice rinks to refrigerant containment to freezing fruits and vegetables is covered in the latest Handbook volume from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

The 2010 ASHRAE Handbook — Refrigeration, covers the refrigeration equipment and systems for applications other than human comfort. It includes information on cooling, freezing, and storing food; industrial applications of refrigeration; and low-temperature refrigeration.

The volume contains two new chapters: Chapter 3, Carbon Dioxide Refrigeration Systems, describes the history of this “natural refrigerant” and why it is the subject of renewed interest today; Chapter 50, Terminology of Refrigeration, lists common terms used in industrial refrigeration systems.

The cost of the 2010 ASHRAE Handbook — Refrigeration, which includes the CD is $195, in inch-pound (I-P) or the International System of Units (SI). The 2010 ASHRAE Handbook on CD, which contains both the I-P and SI editions, costs $155. To order visit
