The Institute of Refrigeration Annual Conference is taking place in Birmingham on the 12th June. Delegates will hear a series of presentations exploring the importance of the risk assessment process from design, through installation, service and maintenance to point of work risk. Changes in legislation mean that old school risk assessment custom and practice is no longer acceptable. Delegates will leave with a deeper understanding of how the risk must now be managed to safe guard staff, sub-contractors, the public […]

If you missed the TechTalk “Sustainable Transport Refrigeration” given by Christina Francis a webinar recording is available. As the global demand for refrigerated products increase, it has become progressively challenging to develop sustainable refrigerated road transport systems. Manufacturers and fleet operators have to balance the competing interests of maintaining temperature control while reducing the energy consumption and overall environmental impact of these systems. The presentation explores how through the analysis of existing maintenance and leakage records, mathematical modelling and experimental […]

The 1st International Conference on the Application of HFO Refrigerants presents an ideal opportunity to learn about the experiences of the users of refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump systems with these new HFO refrigerants. Up until now, conferences, seminars, technical papers and magazine articles have been provided by refrigerant manufacturers, who have been working hard for the last ten years to develop, test and commercialise these products.  This has provided a strong foundation of technical information, but what has been lacking to […]
