Kansas State University and the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration will co-sponsor the 49th offering of the Industrial Refrigeration Workshop, to be held in Charlotte, N.C. on February 15-19, 2016.

This one-week course is intended for those who make decisions such as the purchase of new components, and the enlargement or modification of the plant. Manufacturers of components learn how their products fit into the entire system.

Two coordinators, Don Fenton of Kansas State University and Gary Wilson of the University of North Carolina - Charlotte, provide the fundamentals on which five experts from the industrial refrigeration field supply their practical experience. A thread that runs through the course is the design of a refrigerated distribution center utilizing an ammonia refrigeration system. New technologies available in ammonia refrigeration reducing the ammonia charge will be explored over this week-long workshop.

The International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration and Kansas State University sponsor the workshop. Registration cost is $1525 handled by the Division of Continuing Education at Kansas State University (785) 532-5569. A discount of $50.00 is available to members of the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration.
