Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning

Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning 

A. R. Trott

Preference :

Refrigeration and its application are met in almost every branch of the industry so that practitioners in other fields find that they have to become aware of its principles, uses, and limitations. This book aims to introduce students and professionals in other disciplines to the fundamentals of the subject, without involving the reader too deeply in theory. The subject matter is laid out in logical order and covers the main uses and types of equipment. In the ten years since the last edition, there have been major changes in the choice of refrigerants due to environmental factors, and an additional chapter is introduced to reflect this.
