ASHRAE San Diego May 2019 Meeting




This meeting presentation is titled "New Technologies in Refrigeration".  However, one will be challenged to understand the "new" technologies if one does not understand some "historical" technologies/precedents in refrigeration.

Therefore, this presentation will include a brief overview of "early" refrigeration technology, ending with a presentation of "new" refrigeration technology (or at least refrigeration technology that is fast becoming the "new normal"). 

Come prepared to be educated and informed.  And engage your technical mind. 

Presented By:

Our keynote speaker for this meeting presenation is one of our own ASHRAE members.  His name is Jorge Villalba.  He is retired, and a LIFE member of ASHRAE.  He spent 20 years working for York, 5 years wtih Carrier and 29 years leading his own product rep firm (Fritech, Inc.), engaged in the sale of refrigeration products, i.e. chillers, cooling towers, evaporators, condensers, compressors, heat exchangers, etc. 

And not only did he sell refrigeration products, but he also created/developed and then taught training classes in refrigeration for refrigeration technicians, facility engineers, etc. 

Although Jorge has an amazing knowledge of refrigeration system design, operation and performance, this presentation can/will ONLY be a "high-level" review of refrigeration technologies.  Jorge could easily speak for hours and/or days about comprehensive refrigeration system design, operation and performance.  But we only have 35-45 minutes.  Please welcome one of our own --- Mr. Jorge Villalba. 


As most of you likely know, each year we send significant dollars to ASHRAE Society to help fund "research promotion (RP)". 

Each year we like to share an RP report and thank those who have been so gracious with their support of RP. 

Please join this meeting to receive an update on the 2018-2019 RP campaign.
