CO2 Cycle Basics and Individual Case/Box Control

Presented by:   Jim Jansen   

Tuesday, March 26 from 7:00 AM until 8:15 AM, Sonoma C

The CO2 Cycle Basics and Individual Case/Box Control class is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental principles and practical applications of carbon dioxide (CO2) refrigeration systems. With a specific focus on individual case/box control, this course aims to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to design, operate, and maintain efficient CO2-based refrigeration systems for commercial and industrial applications. Throughout the class, participants will delve into the basics of the CO2 refrigeration cycle, including its thermodynamic properties, pressure-enthalpy relationships, and phase changes. They will explore the unique characteristics of CO2 as a natural refrigerant, its environmental benefits, and the challenges associated with its application in refrigeration systems. The course will specifically address individual case/box control, which involves the independent control of refrigeration units or cases in a larger system. Participants will learn about the different control strategies and techniques used to regulate the temperature, humidity, and energy consumption of individual cases/boxes. They will gain insights into the principles of capacity modulation, defrosting, and adaptive control in CO2 refrigeration systems.
