Lexicon refrigeration technology

IKET GmbH (Ed.) Schmidt, Dieter

Different industries often use different terms as synonyms for terms from refrigeration technology, which, however, have different meanings. In addition, the large number of applications and areas of application in refrigeration technology is reflected in the same abundance of specialist literature. The lexicon provides an overview of the variety of refrigeration technology, its applications and components and related areas of air conditioning. In around 1600 keywords, the author gives a compact and practical description of the theoretical basics of refrigeration, refrigerants and system technology. The aim is not only to give engineers, technicians and craftsmen from Refrigeration technology assistance in the use of technical terms, but also to make it easier for laypeople such as business people, legal scholars and experts from other engineering sciences to deal with these terms. The 4th edition has been updated to reflect the current status of the Technology updated and new keywords added.
