Presentation Description

Standard 15 (Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems) is one of ASHRAE’s oldest standards dating back to 1919.  The purpose of Standard 15 is to specify safe design, construction, installation, and operation of refrigeration systems.  All engineers that work with building mechanical systems should have a basic understanding of this Standard and for those engineers that work closely with refrigeration or chilling systems must have a deeper understanding of this standard and its requirements.  This presentation will provide a review of Standard 15 and highlight recent changes to the standard.  Common misapplications of the standard will be presented and discussed.
