This book has really caught the interest of the South African Air Conditioning Industry! A pleasing number
have been purchased overseas, including an order to a Swedish university and now
FOUR consignments to ASHRAE for resale in the US! Readers have acclaimed the simple and very readable manner in which
the subject matter is presented. There is no book quite like it, available to the Industry.
It starts with a very easily grasped introduction to the subject of energy. (The objective
handling of energy, of course, is exactly what air conditioning and refrigeration are all
The book progresses from this simple opening to make plain the concepts of sensible and
latent heat, how this ties in with a refrigerant as this absorbs heat from an area to be
cooled, and releases this unwanted heat where it has been determined this may be properly
discarded. From here, detailed discussions of the equipment employed and control methods used
unfold. When read from the front cover to the back, the entire spectrum of the refrigeration
aspect of air conditioning unfolds in a way which is not generally available. It doesn’t
stop here. While written as an air conditioning subject, the refrigeration understandings
conveyed here will be of enormous worth to any person involved in pure commercial or
industrial refrigeration, for the basic principles remain unchanged.
You won't find anything quite like
it anywhere apart from right here!
