Design Considerations for a Low-Charge, Central Ammonia Refr
Design Considerations for a Low-Charge, Central Ammonia Refrigeration System Retrofit of an Existing Cold Storage Warehouse (2000)-As we enter the twenty-first century, the food storage and distribution industry is witnessing a return to the refrigerant of its roots: ammonia.

In the end, the modernizing of this facility and the designing and installing of a state-of-the-art ammonia refrigeration system was an unqualified success.
