Following the IIAR Committee and IIAR Board meetings on 22 March, the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration event will host an exhibit hall featuring products by leading ammonia refrigeration industry players, as well as a series of technical events, including end user workshops, panel discussions, presentations of formal papers and exhibitor sponsored training sessions that examine the use of natural refrigerants.

Topics discussed will include “Energy Penalties for CO2 vs. Ammonia”, “Natural Refrigerant Applications in North American Supermarkets”, and “Designing an Inherent Safer Ammonia System”, to name just a few.

The Technical Programme

Topics discussed in the various technical events will revolve around three main topics:
  • Energy Conservation: Technical papers, workshops and panels will report on the latest operating procedures and design strategies that reduce operating costs and boost the energy efficiency of systems.
  • System Maintenance/Mechanical Integrity: Workshops are scheduled that examine mechanical integrity testing programs developed by end users and outline a unique scheduling approach and set of procedures.
  • Codes & Standards: Industry experts will discuss the latest developments on codes and standards relating to the ammonia refrigeration industry, including those that are applied in countries around the world. Reports will focus on fire codes, mechanical codes, ASHRAE 15, IIAR 2 and other new IIAR-developed standards.
