Course Description

163-Heat Load Calculations for Refrigerated Spaces

This course breaks down the heat gain calculations required for any refrigerated space into four categories; transmission, infiltration, product and miscellaneous. An Excel spreadsheet will be provided that calculates the thermal loads in each of these areas and automatically transfers that design data to a concise one page summary.

The course delves into the materials, properties, logic and equations required for heat load calculations in each of the above four areas. It also offers guidance with respect to industry norms and typical, basic cold storage construction techniques.

Upon completion of this course, a good understanding of the refrigeration requirements of most refrigerated spaces will be attained.

This course is very concise and identified to me the differences between heat load calculations for air conditioning and heat load calculations for refrigeration. Some formulas that were given required a little research on my part to help me remember the factors that were used. The spreadsheet is very useful although there seems to be a safety factor built in that causes slight mismatches between the formulas in the text and the results of the spreadsheet. In all I found this course very useful.

Excellent course for the subject. It covered the basics well and brought up some very helpful and pertinent load sizing pointers I had not given much thought to previously. Also, the Load Calc. program is one of the best.

A minor issue but I believe some text correction is in order concerning Insulation Materials (Page 10 of 26).
Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) is closed cell, not open cell.
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is open cell, not closed cell.
Typically, EPS has voids between the molded beads. But all EPS being open cell may be arguable. There is one insulation manufacturer that offers a EPS insulation product claiming its structure is closed cell.
