      [Webinar] Appliantology Peer Group   02/08/2018

        We're doing something totally new this time! In this first ever meeting of the Appliantology Peer Group, we'll be hosting a roundtable-style question and answer webinar. Bring something you'd like to share with your brethren in the craft: it could be photos, a tech tip, new insights gleaned from recent training -- anything having to do with the business or technical sides of the appliance repair trade. If you've got something to show, we'll let you share your screen and give you the opportunity to teach us all something new. And of course, Team Samurai will be there to answer any questions you might have about how to use Appliantology.

  2. Introduction to using the Pressure-Enthalpy Chart to diagnose refrigerator sealed system problems

    This is an excellent short (14 pages) technical article written by Dave Demma, a Senior Application Engineer with Sporlan. He explains how to use the pressure-enthalpy (P-H) chart to understand how a refrigeration cycle works and how to apply this to various troubleshooting scenarios. 
    Don't let the "engineer" scare you-- the math is minimal and simple, nothing more complicated than arithmetic: adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. The explanations are clear, plain and non-geeky and he uses lots of illustrations. It really is a masterpiece of teaching and making something complex understandable by anyone, regardless of your technical background. 
    If you understand or are at least familiar with the P-H chart (which we covered in detail in the Refrigerator Sealed System Thermodynamics webinar series), you'll get a much better understanding for saturation, superheat, subcooling, and system pressures. This copy has my highlights of key points.
