While striving to support cost effective( both initial & operating) and energy efficient ecofriendly green refrigeration systems, it is time we adopt the attitude of Can-Do credo by switching from traditional two-stage compound ammonia refrigeration system to hyper cascade system. We may all want to keep track and embrace this system which has already attained […]
BY MANUCHEHR MEHDIZADEH, BSME LIFE TIME MEMBER ASHRAE, COMMITTEE OFFICER @ IIR, REFRIGERATION CHAIR @ ASHRAE HOUSTON CHAPTER Ammonia Refrigeration Basics Refrigeration systems use basic physics to transfer heat energy out of one area and into another, leaving the first area cooler than it was before as in the cold store systems. Various ice production […]

According to Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report of 2013, the global food wastage is estimated at 1.6 billion tons of “Primary” product which is equivalent to edible food wastage of 1.3 billion tons. In an era where we are still faced with famine in certain countries, population growth, depleting natural resources, and consumer demand for non-preservative and […]
With the growing market in the field of cold chain industries and to cater for the new generations of talent it is our responsibilities and challenge to ensure effective knowledge transfer to our industry’s new participants are conveyed…..
By Manuchehr Mehdizadeh, Design/Build Engineers, Houston, Tx (USA). Mission Critical : Solving temperature control for pharmaceutical applications requires techniques perhaps more complex than those used for data centers and food storage facilities. Given the case of pharmaceutical , where India is the world’s third largest pharmaceutical producers , the impact is critical as even a […]

The risks involved with ammonia refrigeration are substantially reduced by EPA’s Risk Management program (RMP) and preventive maintenance. Part of that process is clear labeling of incorporated pipes and equipment. As the accepted industry experts in this field, the IIAR maintains a code of recommendations for refrigeration equipment labeling- Manuchehr Mehdizadeh, BSME Project Advisor-All aspect of […]
