When it comes to ammonia refrigeration machine rooms, ventilation updates can often be overlooked.. Current and new mechanical codes — International Mechanical Code (IMC) and Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC) — defer to IIAR 2 (and sometimes ASHRAE 15) as the referenced code for ammonia refrigeration systems, including the machine room ventilation.

Total calculated refrigeration load (sum of Items 1 to 7) = 23411 kcal/h Total refrigeration requirement with allowances 23411 × 24 ÷ 18 = 31215 kcal/h. For this we want to know the rating of the fan motors and estimate how long they will run for each day, then we want to also account for any heat transferred into the space from defrosting the evaporator. - search is the most efficient way to navigate the Engineering ToolBox! refrigeration machinery room.
