Industrial Refrigeration Consortium
The Industrial Refrigeration Consortium is a collaborative effort between the University of Wisconsin Madison and industry. Our goal is to improve the safety, efficiency, and productivity of industrial refrigeration systems and technologies. We realize this goal by conducting applied research, delivering knowledge transfer, and providing technical assistance. Although our efforts are focused on industrial refrigeration systems that utilize anhydrous ammonia, we also work with systems that use other refrigerants.
The IRC offers a unique combination of complementary resources that include academic qualifications, technical expertise, and practical experience. We provide objective information that is not biased by an affiliation with any particular organization
IRC`s 17th Annual Research and Technology Forum
This year`s event will include several technical sessions covering topics including: emergency planning & response, energy efficiency considerations for VFDs & fans, regulatory update, and others. With last year`s success, this year we are bringing back the `lightning round` technical session - don`t know what that is? Attend and find out.
This annual event is the most cost-effective opportunity for you to update and expand your knowledge of industrial refrigeration systems. Use this event as an opportunity to gain ideas for continuous improvement. It is a great opportunity to network with other industry experts as well.
Fee includes all breaks/refreshments, lunch, and flash drive that includes the conference presentations.
Because of our meeting location, seating is limited.

Engineering Safety Relief Systems Webcourse
The IRC will offer its Engineering Safety Relief Systems web course from 1-3 pm (Central) during the week of April 3-7, 2017. This webinar is your opportunity to develop a sound understanding of the principles and practices for engineering safety relief systems in refrigeration applications. We will review code requirements and discuss methods for relief device sizing, inlet piping considerations, and discharge vent pipe sizing. Participants successfully completing the course will obtain access to the IRC`s Safety Relief Systems Analysis Tool (Version 1.0).
