Ton of refrigeration - Wikipedia
Ton of refrigeration - WikipediaA ton of refrigeration (TR or TOR), also called a refrigeration ton (RT), is a unit of power used in some countries (especially in North America) to describe the heat-extraction capacity of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. It is defined as the rate of heat transfer that results in the freezing (*or melting) of 1 short ton (2,000 lb; 907 kg) of pure ice at 0 °C (32 °F) in 24 hours.Ton - WikipediaA refrigeration ton should be regarded as power produced by a chiller when operating in standard AHRI conditions, which are typically 44 °F (7 °C) for chilled water unit, and 95 °F (35 °C) air entering the condenser. This is commonly referred to as "true ton". Manufacturers can also provide tables for chillers operating at other chilled
Refrigeration - WikipediaFor commercial and industrial refrigeration systems, the kilowatt (kW) is the basic unit of refrigeration, except in North America, where both ton of refrigeration and BTU/h are used. A refrigeration system&39;s coefficient of performance (CoP) is very important in determining a system&39;s overall efficiency. It is defined as refrigeration capacity Vapor-compression refrigeration - WikipediaThe cooling capacity of refrigeration systems is often defined in units called "tons of refrigeration". The most common definition of that unit is: 1 ton of refrigeration is the rate of heat removal required to freeze a short ton (i.e., 2000 pounds , 907.2 kg ) of water at 32 °F ( 0 C ) in 24 hours .ton of refrigeration - Wiktionaryton of refrigeration (plural tons of refrigeration) ( US ) cooling capacity of an air conditioner or refrigerator equal to 12,000 British thermal units (Btu) per hour 200 Btu per minute; it denotes the amount of heat required to melt one ton of ice in 24 hours.
Air conditioning - WikipediaAir conditioner equipment power in the U.S. is often described in terms of "tons of refrigeration", with each approximately equal to the cooling power of one short ton (2000 pounds or 907 kilograms) of ice melting in a 24-hour period. The value is defined as 12,000 BTU per hour, or 3517 watts.Talk:Ton of refrigeration - WikipediaI think the more common term is &39;Refrigeration ton&39;, abbreviated &39;RT&39;, and therefore this article should be renamed, to replace the current re-direct of &39;Refrigeration ton&39;. &39;tons of refrigeration&39; seems to be a US-only term. Is the "ton" as a unit of energy power actually used outside the US?

Talk:Refrigeration - Wikipedia1 Ton of Refrigeration (TR) is defined as precisely 12,000 BTU/hr. Secondly as this unit is defined in English Units, and is really only used where English units are used. It is rather nonsensical to have multiple SI equivalents, especially seeing as most of the rest of the World uses the Kw as the standard unit of refrigeration.
