This text is a detailed, applications-oriented treatment of the mechanical refrigeration cycle and associated equipment. Completely self-contained, the first five chapters cover the fundamental principles of physics and thermodynamics, including psychometrics. The text emphasizes the cyclic nature of refrigeration systems and offers a thorough examination of each part in relation to other parts and to the whole system. The book contains examples and practice problems that draw theory and practice together.

From the Back Cover:

Principles of Refrigeration provides comprehensive coverage of refrigeration theory, components, and systems analysis and design. For both students and professionals, this book presents the science behind the operation of refrigeration systems as a method for building solid analytical skills, which will set the student/technician apart when it comes to understanding and troubleshooting system malfunctions, inefficiencies, and service requirements.

Key features of this edition:

  • The use of a dual system of units: the customary American system as well as the SI system.
  • The basic science of thermodynamics, heat transfer, mechanics, and applied physics has been expanded with better explanations and examples.
  • Fundamental principles are applied to the refrigeration cycles to show how changes in system variables are transferred throughout the system.
  • Many sections have been reorganized and rewritten to improve the development and flow of concepts. Longer chapters have been divided into more manageable units.
  • Much of the mathematics has been moved to the end of each chapter, in a section called "Optional Analysis."
