Putting the “R” in ASHRAE

ASHRAE has announced the launch of a web page to encourage the advancement of refrigeration technology and its application.

The new web page, referred to as the “R” in ASHRAE, highlights the Society’s commitment to supporting the role of refrigeration worldwide. The web page features resources, information and publications concerning refrigeration and refrigerants such as standards, design guides and ASHRAE courses.

ASHRAE President Sheila J Hayter appointed ASHRAE Region IX Director and Regional Chair Trent Hunt to oversee a Board Task Group on Refrigeration during her term from 2018–19.

Hayter says the page incorporates ASHRAE’s past in refrigeration, while keeping visitors abreast of our current objectives and leads the conservation on the future of refrigeration.

“We are confident that this page will be a powerful resource to industry professionals and the general public alike,” she says.

Some features on the web page include:

  • ASHRAE-endorsed conferences and events covering refrigeration and refrigerants
  • Refrigerant designations
  • Interviews with professionals in the field of refrigeration
  • Research and news on refrigeration-related topics.

The new page follows ASHRAE and the International Institute of Refrigeration’s recent announcement about the establishment of new definitions for five refrigeration keywords.
