What people are saying about Refrigeration Basics ....

 

To those in the know:

I am a student in the 1.5 year HVAC Associates Degree Program at Redstone College in Broomfield, Colorado.

While browsing the web for more "easier to understand" information on refrigeration and heating, I stumbled upon the Refrigeration Basics III Interactive Training CD. I immediately purchased the CD and it has been well worth the investment!

The photo links, easy to understand dialogue and clever animation make the course material fun to learn. One of the drawbacks to typical HVAC-R textbooks is that they are frequently too complicated in their explanations and terminology.

The Refrigeration Basics III CD is exceptional in its ability to explain complicated systems, definitions, and the processes that go along with refrigeration and heating. The troubleshooting guides and schematics really help the student to test his or her knowledge with real world simulations.

Do yourself a favor and fork out the $$$ to get this product. It will be an asset and handy reference too for you in the future!

I just received the Refrigeration Basics III  Professional Version from you guys and I just wanted to say thanks for all of the great work that you did on this. I work in engineering at a Rehab Institute and I can see this is going to help a lot in my understanding of everything from ice makers to walk-in refrigerators to heat pumps. Everything from the theory to the troubleshooting parts are terrific!

I was showing the roof top unit troubleshooting to a friend, who is a licensed HVAC service tech, and it had him stumped for a while. He said he is going to order a copy for himself!

Steve,

This CD is awesome!!  Very well thought out and makes learning AC a breeze!  My hat is off to you for making a great learning tool available.  Hope the heating CD is just as good and let me know when it becomes available.  If you have any info on the EPA exam, what books I need, or best study material please let me know. 

Thanks again,

Charles E. - Canton, Mississippi

How do things get colder?

\

© 2001-2003 Seaside Computing

The latter two are used extensively in the design of refrigeration equipment. If you place two objects together so that they remain touching, and one is hot and one is cold, heat will flow from the hot object into the cold object. This is called conduction. This is an easy concept to grasp and is rather like gravitational potential, where a ball will try to roll down an inclined plane. If you were to fan a hot plate of food it would cool somewhat. Some of the heat from the food would be carried away by the air molecules. When heat is transferred by a substance in the gaseous state the process is called convection. And if you kicked a glowing hot ember away from a bonfire, and you watched it glowing dimmer and dimmer, it is cooling itself by radiating heat away. Note that an object doesn’t have to be glowing in order to radiate heat, all things use combinations of these methods to come to equilibrium with their surroundings. So you can see that in order to refrigerate something, we must find a way to expose our object to something that is colder than itself and nature will take over from there. We are getting closer to talking about the actual mechanics of a refrigerating system, but there are some other important concepts to discuss first.

The States of Matter

They are of course; solid, liquid and gas. It is important to note that heat must be added to a substance to make it change state from solid to liquid and from liquid to a gas. It is just as important to note that heat must be removed from a substance to make it change state from a gas to a liquid and from a liquid to a solid.

The Magic of Latent Heat

Long ago it was found that we needed a way to quantify heat. Something more precise than "less heat" or "more heat" or "a great deal of heat" was required. This was a fairly easy task to accomplish. They took 1 Lb. of water and heated it 1 degree Fahrenheit. The amount of heat that was required to do this was called 1 BTU (British Thermal Unit). The refrigeration industry has long since utilized this definition. You can for example purchase a 6000 BTUH window air conditioner. This would be a unit that is capable of relocating 6000 BTU's of heat per hour. A larger unit capable of 12,000 BTUH could also be called a one Ton unit. There are 12,000 BTU's in 1 Ton.

To raise the temperature of 1 LB of water from 40 degrees to 41 degrees would take 1 BTU. To raise the temperature of 1 LB of water from 177 degrees to 178 degrees would also take 1 BTU. However, if you tried raising the temperature of water from 212 degrees to 213 degrees you would not be able to do it. Water boils at 212 degrees and would prefer to change into a gas rather than let you get it any hotter. Something of utmost importance occurs at the boiling point of a substance. If you did a little experiment and added 1 BTU of heat at a time to 1 LB of water, you would notice that the water temperature would increase by 1 degree each time. That is until you reached 212 degrees. Then something changes. You would keep adding BTU's, but the water would not get any hotter! It would change state into a gas and it would take 970 BTU's to vapourize that pound of water. This is called the Latent Heat of Vapourization and in the case of water it is 970 BTU's per pound.

Why I Became a Distributor for Refrigeration Basics
I have been in the HVAC Industry for over 30 Years and I have seen hundreds of different technical training books, videos and even software programs. Refrigeration Basics Version III Professional is by far the best HVAC Training program I have ever seen.

It is written from a HVAC technician's perspective and easy to understand. The large, animated and interactive graphics make learning fun.

Our students and instructors loved the program so much that we included it into our training programs at HVAC Training Center, Inc., as well as in our online training programs.

I absolutely had to become an official distributor for the program.
