The Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry has been developing since the late nineteenth century. It is a comparatively young Industry and is, more importantly, very much a growth Industry. Employment opportunities for Personnel entering the field of Refrigeration increase year by year to accommodate this growth. There are, broadly speaking, six fields of Refrigeration. These fields are Domestic air conditioning, Commercial air con , Industrial, Marine and Refrigerated Transport. Automotive Air Conditioning, which is now fitted as standard to most of the production cars, is the latest addition to our Industry.
Domestic Refrigeration – This title applies to the appliances most of us have in our homes – domestic refrigerators and freezers. The past couple of years have also seen an increase in the number of small air conditioning units and mobile units installed in our homes. Maintenance of domestic appliances is normally through the initial manufacturer’s warranty. Long term service contracts and servicing / repair facilities are usually provided by local Engineers.
Commercial Refrigeration – The plant and equipment on site can vary widely. It is more often in the medium/large range. This field covers Offices, Banks and Building Societies, Supermarkets, Hospitals, Entertainment Centres, Hotels, Airports, Railways, Prisons etcetera. Some plant and equipment will be covered through a Service Contract Company, others through the employment of “On-site Personnel”.
Industrial Refrigeration – This field also covers the medium/large range of plant and equipment. It covers factories producing a broad spectrum of products e.g. meat, poultry, fish, pastries, sweets, chocolates, deserts, pickles, sauces, mineral water and pet-foods. Bakeries for all our bread, cakes and pies. Breweries for beers, lagers and a range of beverages.
Marine Refrigeration – Ocean going refrigerated cargo vessels, ships and barges carry a huge range of products from every corner of the globe. They supply our food industry, supermarkets and shops with a wide variety of produce. Pleasure craft of all types and sizes are fitted with air conditioners, heat pumps, refrigerators and freezers. All of these have unique features which reflect their use, application and geographical location on inland waterways throughout the world.
Refrigerated Transport – The transportation of chilled and wide-range of frozen food products has increased tremendously over the past decade. There is a growing demand for our produce to arrive on the shelves of our shops and supermarkets in “peak condition”. Fleet operators have grown in numbers in relation to this demand – along with the requirement for vehicles to perform at the height of efficiency, hence the growing numbers of Engineers required to ensure that the servicing, repair and maintenance of these “fleets” is carried out.
Air Conditioning Systems– Control Temperature (heating & cooling) which entails adding energy (heating) or removing unwanted energy (cooling). General comfort conditions range between 20 – 25 c in the UK.
Control Humidity (moisture content in the air), either humidify (add moisture) when dry, which can result in dryness of skin, dry throat and encourages static build-up) or de-humidify (remove moisture) when the amount of moisture in the air is high, which can result in breathing discomfort. Comfort humidity is generally between 30-70 % RH (Relative Humidity) for the UK. Provide Ventilation to provide the necessary oxygen for breathing and dispelling carbon dioxide, odour, dust, smoke etc. General ventilation requirement ranges between 5 – 18 litres per second per person.
Provide Filtration to clean outside and inside air by removing dust, pollen, etc. Dust in dry air combined with dryness (lack of moisture in the air) is the main cause of static shocks. Lack of ventilation and filtration combined with the lack of maintenance is the main causes of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS).
Automotive Air Conditioning – The installation of air conditioning units were fitted to an “elite” selection of cars five years ago. Today these units are fitted to the majority of production vehicles. To date, most garages seem reluctant to take on board the servicing and maintenance of the air conditioning systems and seem to prefer to have maintenance and repairs carried out by Contractors.
This, of course, is very good news for the thousands of Contractors throughout the United Kingdom.
