Industrial Refrigeration

Jun 22, 2017 - 8:30 am to 3:00 pm

Course Overview

This seminar reviews basic industrial refrigeration concepts and provides a system overview, including typical industrial refrigeration practice, applications, equipment, and configurations. Attendees will learn how to achieve energy savings by improving the operating efficiency of industrial refrigeration systems, meeting Title 24 standards, and implementing integrated demand side management strategies. An in-class exercise explores the economics of different industrial refrigeration system configurations.

Course Objectives

  • Describe energy efficiency measures that are applied to industrial refrigeration systems
  • Explain how demand response can be applied, and its potential with refrigerated warehouses
  • Describe how new opportunities in permanent load shifting with thermal energy storage can provide energy savings
  • Define specific efficiency of evaporators and condensers and describe their importance relative to product selection


David Wylie earned his B.S. from California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo and subsequently achieved a Registered Professional Engineer License in California.  Energy efficiency was getting more attention and an interest in cost analysis led David to completing an MBA at National University which provided him with even more tools to analyze energy efficiency investment from both a mechanical and financial perspective.
David and his two partners began working together in 1976 and the Engineering Management Consulting firm of ASWB, located in Tustin, California, today has a staff of over 25. Their work experience covers the range of energy engineering including research, development, program design, measurement, feasibility study of electrical/mechanical systems and energy supply for commercial and industrial facilities.  He has an ability to take sophisticated engineering concepts and relate them in a way you can understand, and the materials are presented in a friendly and practical way.
