Technical Session Highlights:

GBCI Approved | 1 CE Hour | 0920002609

AIA Approved|1LU|REINDL01

Industrial refrigeration systems have used anhydrous ammonia for more than a sesquicentennial. Although ammonia has a long history of use in the industrial sector, the interest in ammonia as a potential refrigerant for non-industrial applications has grown recently. This presentation will provide an overview of the ammonia refrigeration systems that have been the mainstay in the industrial sector and emphasize unique characteristics that differentiate ammonia systems from traditional halocarbon refrigeration systems.

Main Presentation Highlights:

Standard 15 (Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems) is one of ASHRAE’s oldest standards dating back to 1919. The purpose of Standard 15 is to specify safe design, construction, installation, and operation of refrigeration systems. All engineers that work with building mechanical systems should have a basic understanding of this Standard and for those engineers that work closely with refrigeration or chilling systems must have a deeper understanding of this standard and its requirements. This presentation will provide a review of Standard 15 and highlight recent changes to the standard. Common misapplications of the standard will be presented and discussed.

As faculty member at the University of Wisconsin since 1996, Professor Reindl has taught at all levels: undergraduate, graduate, and continuing professional development. Professor Reindl has developed an internationally-recognized series of professional development courses focused on industrial refrigeration systems with an emphasis on the safe use of ammonia as a refrigerant. Through the IRC, Professor Reindl works with some of the world’s leading food companies to improve the safety, efficiency, reliability and productivity of industrial refrigeration systems and technologies.

In addition to being an ASHRAE Fellow, Professor Reindl is also a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, International Institute of Refrigeration, and the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration. He is a past recipient of ASHRAE’s Distinguished Service Award and the first recipient of ASHRAE’s George C. Briley Award for the best refrigeration article in the ASHRAE Journal. He is a past chair and member of ASHRAE’s Standard 15 committee – Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems.

Professor Reindl has published 6 books and nearly 100 technical papers on topics including: industrial refrigeration, building mechanical systems, energy systems, indoor air quality, and solar energy.
