Propane Refrigeration Basics
Propane refrigeration is the most common mechanical refrigeration process. It has a wide range of applications in the gas processing industry.
The participant will be refreshed with mechanical refrigeration basics and gain practical understanding of the operation of a propane refrigeration system.
The primary objective of the webinar is to describe the major components, how they work, and how to minimize the operating problems.
Explain how a simple propane refrigeration system works, including major equipment functions and the effect of condenser and chiller temperatures on compressor power
Describe typical refrigeration process control
Discuss common operating problems
What Will Attendees Learn?
The function of each equipment in the system
The theory of operation of propane refrigeration systems
The impact of condenser and chiller temperatures on compressor power
How to minimize operating problems
How to control chiller temperature
Who Should Attend?
This webinar is directed toward supervisors, team leaders and staff in engineering and production that are responsible for facilities with propane refrigeration systems. The seminar will also benefit anyone who wishes to update themselves on mechanical refrigeration systems, and their potential operating problems.
