IRTC Celebrates it’s Five Year Anniversary Since Installing the CO2 System
April 13, 2018


Five years ago this month, Industrial Refrigeration Technical College (IRTC) announced the opening of their CO2 lab! Over the past five years, IRTC has been able to provide more hands-on learning for its students with a CO2 specific course using the carbon dioxide system. The use of CO2 has become more commonly used, and the course gives a broad introduction of fundamental knowledge required to work on a carbon dioxide system. Students have been able to go more in-depth with their learning of the CO2 systems since the lab provides the functionality of different types of refrigeration systems. While taking the CO2 course, students will get hands-on experience utilizing the Cascade System. Topics discussed include, using ammonia or other refrigerant as a high temperature condensing medium, trans-critical, pumped liquid re-circulation, flooded, secondary coolant and direct expansion. It’s been a great five years with the CO2 addition and we can’t wait for more to come!

To learn more about our CO2 lab and courses offered, please visit Industrial Refrigeration Technical College (IRTC). The next CO2 course will be held September 17-19, 2018, please call (540) 246-0926 for more details.
