If you missed the IOR historical TechTalk a recording of the presentation and discussion is now available. Travel back in time and find out more about the early pioneers of ammonia refrigeration. Hear about the likes of David Boyle along with Francis de Coppet and John Beath and how they revolutionised the sector with a series of notable “firsts”.

The talk given by Dr Andy Pearson FInstR was part of the 123rd-anniversary celebration of the founding of the Institute of Refrigeration. The talk and paper provide a thorough account of the life and times of the characters involved in the early development of ammonia refrigeration.  The event also marks the 150th Anniversary of what is generally considered the first ammonia refrigeration system using vapour compression.
