ASHRAE Std-15, Refrigeration System Safety with speaker Douglas Reindl

Wed Feb 7 at 11:30a

This month’s chapter program will give us the opportunity to learn about ASHRAE Standard 15 with a review and update of the current standard.

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.

Douglas Reindl is a professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition, he is the founding director of the Industrial Refrigeration Consortium (IRC) at UW-Madison. Professor Reindl has taught at all levels: undergraduate, graduate, and continuing professional development. Professor Reindl has developed an internationally-recognized series of professional development courses focused on industrial refrigeration systems with an emphasis on the safe use of ammonia as a refrigerant. Through the IRC, Professor Reindl works with some of the world’s leading food companies to improve the safety, efficiency, reliability and productivity of industrial refrigeration systems and technologies.

Professional Development Certificates (1 hour) will be provided after the webinar.

Reservations: RSVP no later than 4:00pm Tuesday, the day ahead of the meeting, via email to Logan O’Dell at or call 423-827-3185. (note NEW contact)
