Refrepair by far. Good common sense troubleshooting guide covering most applications. I have tried emailing Kotza recently but havn't heard back from them. I'm assuming they are still traiding.

The other one was the Honeywell Building Automatic Control Systems which gave a good explanation of PLC Strategies.

For me it is "Principles of Refrigeration " second edition by Roy J Dossat.

Thanks for the suggestion. I recently bought a couple Whirlpool refrigerators (javascript:submitKeyword('whirlpool+refrigerators','Forum+Posting','1181')) for my business and will be using these books for future reference.

Thanks again guys!

Hello,

Could you send me more details about the Honeywell book (a title, a link etc.)? I'm very interested in such a book.

Thank you in advance.

For those ammonia guys out there the best industrial refrigeration book for me would be Industrial Refrigeration Handbook by Wilbert Stoecker.

i got a great little book it's an arco one, something like refrigeration tool box manual, it's cheap and full of useful info. The dossat is regaurded as the bible but it's expensive (for the right one) and there are more upto date cheaper books out there.

I agree with Magoo, this is a very handy book with lots of info. I used to carry it in my van and it is now in my office for reference.

That was our TAFE manual back in the day.
