Why is HVAC&R important?
It’s important because of its wide range of applications to different industries such as food, building, oil and gas, petrochem, etc. Making changes to the standards and regulations, or smart engineering and optimising these systems, would have considerable global impact. The HFC phase-down or imposing minimum coefficient of performance requirements for new installations are good examples of that.
What do you do, and what is the most satisfying aspect of your work?
I do concept design for refrigeration packages for oil and gas and petrochem applications, prepare tender documents and try to win projects. I enjoy the dynamic nature of refrigeration engineering. After working in this industry for a few years, I still have so much to learn under the supervision of an amazing mentor.
The most satisfying part of my job is the process of finding a design that is the most suitable and efficient for the condition that our client requires. It is interesting studying different designs and arrangements and analysing the effect of changing different parameters on the overall performance.
What will you be doing to celebrate World Refrigeration Day?
Chill some wine and drink to a bright future for HVAC&R.
