Energy Efficiency in Natural Refrigeration Systems
IIAR Sunday Education Program

Sunday March 3, 2019 • 1:00 PM – 5:15 PM • 4 PDH/CEU
Sponsored by CIMCO Refrigeration 

Esteemed engineers will discuss a variety of topics related to design, retrofit, and operation of refrigeration systems with the goal of saving energy. The session will include discussions about overall system analysis, goals setting, demand pricing and peak loading, rebate programs, compressor set-up and operating techniques, equipment and piping selection and more. Attendees will gain useful tools such as “back of the envelope” methods for high level analysis. Case studies will also be presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of various energy saving techniques.


Join us at the 2019 IIAR Natural Refrigeration Conference & Expo for the Sunday afternoon IIAR Education program – Energy Efficiency for Ammonia Refrigeration Systems.
