If you are an HVAC or refrigeration service professional, this course is for you. In this training course students will learn:
How can your benefit from this class you ask? Over my career, I have had the opportunity to teach some of the best and brightest the above key principals. With these principals, and the ability to refer back to this information as much as you want, there is NO refrigeration system you will not be able to fix. Many if my students have moved on to start their own HVACR business and earn their way into the SIX FIGURES through hard work and applying the principals in this class. YOUR ARE WORTH THE INVESTMENT!
Foundation Lecture: Understanding the four key components of the refrigeration system, and how these components interact with one another in the refrigeration cycle is an essential step to both basic and advanced diagnostics.
The relationship between refrigerant pressure and temperature is a core data point with performing diagnostics on any refrigeration system. This lecture demonstrates how to read and interpret a Temperature/Pressure chart that we will use in the following lessons.
In order to diagnose problems in a refrigeration system, the technician must be able to accurately measure operating pressures. This lecture provides the technician with solid basics on the types of pressure measurements systems available.
As with reading pressure (in Lecture #4) reading temperature accurately also very important. This lesson provides the technician on information the type of temperature measurement system needed to perform refrigeration system diagnostics.
Now with you have a basic understanding of the key refrigeration system components, the refrigeration cycle, the relationship between refrigerant pressure/temperature and the tools you need, its time to start the process of learning solid refrigeration diagnostic skills.
Similar to the human body, you can't see inside of a refrigeration system. You can however take specific readings such as Super Heat to determine performance issues within the refrigeration cycle. Super Heat calculations demonstrated in this lesson will focuse on the evaporator (or heat absorption) side of the refrigeration cycle.
I am an industry-leading refrigeration systems designer, author, US Patent holder, business owner and consultant in HVACR. I have developed a new line of high-efficiency process chillers that can reduce cooling system costs for MRI,CT,PET and LINAC systems up 60%. Legacy Chiller Systems is also in the process of integrating predictive services capable of reducing life cycle costs up to 30%. My talent for reducing HVACR and facilities engineering costs, implementing innovative energy conservation practices, and maximizing the efficient use of facilities and critical building systems for Hewlett Packard, Intel, IBM, eBay, and leading Department of Defense agencies are just a few of the ways I have contributed positively to the HVACR industry. I have 30+ years of experience strategically developing, implementing, and positively influencing commercial and industrial HVACR operations and manufacturing, installing, and servicing a line of process fluid chillers for industrial businesses, government agencies, and Fortune 500 corporate accounts.
