EST-200 - Principles of Refrigeration

2 credits

The science of refrigeration is based on physics, chemistry, and the transfer of heat which forms the foundation for an understanding of the refrigeration process. After these principles are learned in the first few weeks, emphasis is placed on the refrigeration cycle and its components. A study is made of the properties of the refrigerants that are used in the different applications, and of the instruments that are necessary in the servicing of these systems, both domestic and commercial. Extensive lab assignments also bring to the students a hands-on approach to the analyzing and servicing of refrigeration and air conditioning systems.
