The manual gives new recruits and experienced readers alike an overview of all the important aspects of refrigeration and fills in partial knowledge gaps. The content of the compact 220-page manual is both graphic and realistic for readers, from the fundamentals of thermodynamics and the components of a refrigerating circuit through to commissioning and troubleshooting refrigeration systems. The special aspect of the structure of the book is that the information is provided in both German and English, so that readers can immediately familiarise themselves with the technical jargon in both languages. The various subject areas of refrigeration are made easy to understand with numerous colourful diagrams, illustrations and overviews.
The work draws on the knowledge of numerous external experts from Test- und Weiterbildungszentrum Wärmepumpen und Kältetechnik (TWK) such as Rainer Burger, Professor Johannes Reichelt and Michael Stalter. Numerous BITZER experts were also involved in the development of the manual, including Hermann Renz, Dr Heinz Jürgensen and the publisher Volker Stamer, Director of the SCHAUFLER Academy at the BITZER site in Rottenburg-Ergenzingen, the company’s international competence centre for screw compressors. Volker Stamer is proud of the publication of the first BITZER book: ‘The work makes an important contribution to raising the significance of our sector. To the individual, refrigeration and air conditioning mostly operate unnoticed in the background, although every single one of us comes into contact with them – often without realising it. These days, you need cooling for everything. This work will help anyone who is interested learn more about the fascinating world of refrigeration, be they a beginner or more advanced.’
‘Grundlagen der Kältetechnik // Fundamentals of Refrigeration’ is available in hardback for €29.80 and as an e-book for €29.99. For pupils and students, the hardback edition is available for as little as €19.80 – when placing the order, corresponding documentation of student/pupil status must be uploaded.
