Unit of Refrigeration
One Ton of Refrigeration
Heat extraction rate from 1 Ton of water at 32 oF to
convert 1 Ton of ice at 32 oF within a period 24 hrs.
Ton or Tonne
1 Tonne = 1000 kg
1 Ton (UK) = 1016 kg
1 Ton (US) = 2000 lbs = 907.2 kgs

Unit of Refrigeration
1 Tons of Refrigeration (TR) = 12000 BTU/h
BTU: It is the amount of work needed to raise the
temperature of one pound of water by one degree
Fahrenheit.
1 BTU = 0.2522 kCal

1 kCal = 3.966 BTU

1 BTU = 1055 J
