ASHRAE Technical Committee 8.3 - Absorption and Heat Operated Machines


Welcome to the homepage of the ASHRAE Technical Committee 8.3. This technical committee is concerned with the design, performance, and application of equipment energized by a heat source and using a thermodynamic cycle to provide an air-conditioning, refrigerating, or heating function; with the properties of absorbent solutions or special working fluids used in these cycles; and with components of the cycle requiring specific design characteristics.
