Refrigeration and air conditioning apprentices in Canada will benefit from a demand by the Alberta government that large-scale, public infrastructure projects will be required to utilise apprentices.
With this online tool, you can find definitions (in English and French) of scientific and technical terms, as well as identify terms in the language of your choice and find corresponding translations in the 10 other languages.
LogoRegistration for SkillFRIDGE 2018 is now open with a new refreshed format. Any apprentice studying Level 2 RACHP upwards can now take part following the removal of the upper age limit.
In a move designed to strengthen ties between the two countries, the Australian and Indian air conditioning and refrigeration institutes have signed a memorandum of understanding.
UN Environment OzonAction is assisting all developing countries (Article 5 under the Montreal Protocol) through its networks of National Ozone Officers (146 developing countries), clearinghouse and capacity-building activities to implement their national hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) phase-out. OzonAction supports efforts to phase out HCFCs, adopt non-ozone depleting, non global warming and energy-efficient alternatives in a safe and sustainable manner, ultimately protecting our common global property – the Earth’s ozone layer.
In a bid to increase understanding of transcritical CO2 systems in North America, Hillphoenix’s senior corporate trainer Rusty Walker led a training session in an effort to educate technicians who typically work in industrial plants on the finer points of the technology at the RETA (Refrigerating Engineers and Technicians Association) National Conference, held in Hershey, Pa., September 25-29 2017.
The Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) has upgraded its online directory of more than 7.2 million certified products.
Scientists claim to have been able to show for the first time that ozone depletion is declining through direct observations of the ozone hole by a satellite instrument.
All apprentices studying Level 2 RACHP upwards will eligible to compete in the 2018 SkillFridge skills competition.
It has been widely acknowledged that the number of technicians trained to handle natural refrigerant systems is dwindling. But the advent of small and standardized low-charge ammonia packaged systems – which can be used instead of traditional massive ammonia plants or synthetic refrigerant systems – will make it easier to train and maintain enough qualified technicians, according to Mike Chapman, director of process safety management (PSM) compliance at Stellar, and Kurt Liebendorfer, vice-president of Evapco.
If there’s one thing we’re learning about this global planetary experiment called climate change, it’s that there are unexpected consequences. Case in point: All of the water pouring off Earth’s melting ice sheets is making the oceans heavier, so much so that seafloors are literally sinking. And that could be messing with our measurements of global sea level rise.
