Cold Room Calc

Cold Room Calc logo.

This computer program is designed for cold room refrigeration load calculations. Cold Room Calc requires a minimum of input data to be entered that are sufficient for most frequent tasks occurred in practice. Cold Room Calc can be used both by professionals and non-specialists in the field of refrigeration technology. Cold Room Calc with dual units of measurement (SI and I-P). Cold Room Calc is supplied with the databases on elements of refrigeration heat insulation, types of food products and climatic characteristics of different geographic locations. The entries in these databases can be easily added, deleted and edited by the user.

The output is a table of heat gains into cold room from separate sources, their ratios and also the total heat gain, as well as a table of heat loads grouped by source categories and their total including safety factor. The program allows to enter information about the customer and the project, as well as to get on paper or in electronic form a printout with the calculation results. There is a comprehensive context-sensitive help file. Screen Shots
