The application of refrigeration technology is essential in the design of an HVAC system, which is used to provide favourable climatic conditions both for life on board and for special applications.
The refrigeration equipment are thus considered the “heart” of the HVAC installation and their design and configuration require careful study
Based on the foregoing, HVAC systems are designed mainly under two refrigeration equipment configurations:
- Refrigeration plants with direct expansion of refrigerant (UC Condensing Units)
- Refrigeration plants for chilled water (CHW Chiller water plants)
