2020 IIAR Natural Refrigeration Virtual Conference & Expo

May 18th - June 5th, 2020. Every challenge brings new opportunity. As the evolving impacts of COVID-19 continue to affect the way people meet face-to-face, IIAR has made a big transition with our annual conference in order to bring the latest information in natural refrigeration technology to as many people as we can - online. If you have never had the opportunity to attend the annual IIAR conference due to travel restrictions or competing obligations, now is your chance to participate! For IIAR friends, old and new, we welcome you to register for the conference and engage with us online. No one knows exactly when we will be able to travel widely or meet in-person again, in the meantime though, we can all come together in new ways in order to stay connected.
There are many reasons why attending the IIAR 2020 Natural Refrigeration Online Conference & Virtual Expo is a good idea.
  1. Gain New Skills needed to enhance your knowledge of the industry - online
  2. Real-time Q&A with experts during live sessions – online
  3. PDH credits awarded for technical session participation - online
  4. See the latest innovation in equipment and services from natural refrigeration vendors in a one-stop shop location - online
All of this is available online through our new virtual platform!

This year’s Education Program will focus on the application and design of secondary coolant systems. As end-users seek alternatives to replace their HFC based systems, or reduce the charge of their ammonia based systems, the trend for using reduced charge ammonia and propane as a “high side” refrigerant in combination with secondary systems is becoming more widespread. This seminar is intended to familiarize end-users and designers with the range and properties of secondary coolants available along with their applications. The seminar will also cover pumping and piping system design techniques that can minimize energy costs. Another topic included will be the use of CO2 as a “volatile brine”. Instructors will demonstrate engineering calculations and case study examples of successful applications will be provided.
