Now in its second release, the ESCO Institute's EPA Section 608 Preparatory 9th Edition V2 Manual covers the material required to successfully pass the Universal Exam in 32 pages.
This book will provide an overview of the following:
-concepts and measurements of pressure as well as the related gas laws.
-temperature/pressure relationship as it relates to the refrigeration cycle.
-study of thermodynamics and heat transfer.
-the refrigerant cycle, refrigerant states, and temperature/pressure relationships.
-refrigerant composition, properties, and refrigerant applications.
-common oils used with refrigerants, their applications and uses, and safe handling.
-the process of retrofitting a system to use an alternative refrigerant and oil as well as system cleanup.
-the function and applications of evaporators, condensers, compressors, and metering devices.
-typical operating conditions for system components under normal conditions.
-proper installation and maintenance of the refrigerant circuit components.
Completely revised to reflect the 2012 National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), The Lineman's and Cableman's Handbook, 12th Edition, provides in-depth information on overhead and underground distribution and transmission lines. The latest OSHA, ANSI, and ASTM standards are emphasized throughout.
This authoritative resource presents basic principles, equipment, standards, and safety regulations, allowing electrical workers to avoid costly errors, diagnose and repair power failures, and ensure optimum safety. A wealth of illustrations and photographs make it easy to understand the material, and self-test questions and exercises help reinforce key concepts.
