Series 1 Module 2
Ammonia Refrigeration Systems

This module examines the major components that make up ammonia refrigeration systems including direct expansion, recirculating, and indirect systems. This module also explores the role of pressure reduction devices in the system.
 
Series 1 Module 3
Evaporators

Module 3 focuses on evaporators. It explores the inner workings of air units and liquid chillers, including shell & tube and plate & frame evaporators. This module examines evaporator  capacity and factors that impact evaporator operation. It also explores the pressure of the ammonia as it flows through the evaporator and the temperature difference between the liquid ammonia and the air, and secondary cooling being cooled.

                              
            
                 
                        
                      
            
                             
 

 

                        
            
             
            
           
            
           

 


Series 1 Module 4
Compressors

Module 4 examines the operation of compressors commonly used in the ammonia refrigeration industry: the reciprocating compressor, the rotary vane compressor and the screw compressor. This module also discusses volumetric efficiency, swept volume and compression ratio.


Series 1 Module 5
Condensers

Module 5 explores air-cooled condensers, water– cooled condensers and evaporative condensers. It also outline the factors that may impact a condenser’s efficiency and heat-transfer capability including the surface area of the heat transfer material, the conductive capability of the heat transfer surface, the difference in temperature between the cooling agent and the ammonia vapor and the rate and direction of the flow of both the ammonia and cooling agent.
