... of the refrigeration plants and the ground heat removal process. The coupling of these two
aspects of AGF requires knowledge of the plant’s refrigeration capacity as a function of many
factors; the most important of which is the temperature of the brine returning from the freeze
pipes. However, refr ...

vapor-compression refrigeration cycle. In an ideal
vapor-compression refrigeration cycle, the
refrigerant enters the compressor as a saturated
vapor and is cooled to the saturated liquid state in
the condenser. It is then throttled to the

International Institute of Refrigeration
The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) (also known, in French, as the Institut International du Froid (IIF)), is an independent intergovernmental science and technology based organization which promotes knowledge of refrigeration and associated technologies and applications on a global scale that improve quality of life in a cost effective and environmentally sustainable manner including: Food quality and safety from farm to consumer Comfort in homes and commercial buildings Health products and services Low temperature technology and liquefied gas technology Energy efficiency Use of non-ozone-depleting and low global warming refrigerants in a safe manner.Its scientific and technology activities are coordinated by 10 commissions which are divided into five distinct sections. The Institute produces a monthly journal on refrigeration, the International Journal of Refrigeration, that is published by Elsevier.The staff of the International Institute of Refrigeration includes the Director (Didier Coulomb), the Scientific and Technical Information Department (STID), the Communications and Conference Development Department, the Translation Department, and the Secretariat.More information can be found on the IIR website at www.iifiir.org.
