: Cengage Learning
Easy to read, yet technically precise, MODERN DIESEL TECHNOLOGY: HEATING, VENTILATION, AIR CONDITIONING, AND REFRIGERATION, 2ND EDITION introduces the foundations of truck heating, air conditioning, engine cooling, and truck-trailer refrigeration. The top choice for many of the country’s best diesel technology programs, this resource clearly demonstrates on-the-job tasks in logical sequence. Coverage includes an entire section on thermodynamics, as well as instruction on safety, equipment, components, troubleshooting, performance testing, maintenance, and even the history of HVAC/R in the diesel trucking industry. This edition delivers technical accuracy and a depth of HVAC/R information not found in any other presentation.
- The instructor’s manual offers a complete correlation to the NATEF tasks presented in the coverage of the each chaper.
- Background Physics: A full chapter on thermodynamics theory gives students the understanding of basic physics they need to thrive in their HVAC/R diesel technician training.
- Unmatched Coverage: Chapters cover AC components, refrigeration, engine cooling systems, climate control, and all aspects of refrigeration equipment, as well as service procedures, troubleshooting, performance testing, and maintenance. No competing text offers so many topics with such depth!
- Step-by-Step Guidance: Helpful photographs and line art depict major HVAC and refrigeration systems, while simple terminology and product-specific examples support student learning further.
