The textbook presents the experiences and techniques of industrial refrigeration and transfers them to commercial refrigeration applications. The general conditions and legal requirements for the use of natural refrigerants, as well as the economic efficiency of the refrigeration systems are also considered and necessary additional knowledge for handling them is imparted. Tables, pictures and plant diagrams are used to show examples of practical implementation.
