of the technology.
Now in its fourth edition, this respected text delivers a
comprehensive introduction to the principles and practice of
refrigeration. Clear and straightforward, it is designed for
students (NVQ/vocational level) and professional HVAC engineers,
including those on short or CPD courses. Inexperienced readers are
provided with a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of
the technology. With its concise style yet broad sweep the book
covers most of the applications professionals will encounter,
enabling them to understand, specify, commission, use and maintain
these systems. Many readers will appreciate the clarity with which
the book covers the subject without swamping them with detailed
technical or product specific information.
New material in this edition includes the latest developments in
refrigerants and lubricants, together with updated information on
compressors, heat exchangers, liquid chillers, electronic expansion
valves, controls and cold storage. Topics also covered include
efficiency, environmental impact, split systems, retail
refrigeration (supermarket systems and cold rooms), industrial
systems, fans, air infiltration and noise.

He is past - President of the Institute of Refrigeration.
Covers principles, methods and application of refrigeration, air
conditioning and heat pumps in a concise volume, without the
encumbrance of handbook information found in other volumes
Ideal for students, and professionals in other disciplines, not too
theoretical but with sufficient depth to give an understanding of
the issues, this book takes the reader from the fundamentals,
through to system design, applications, contract specifications and
