LRS releases details of upcoming events

The London Refrigeration Society (LRS) has released its list of meetings and speakers for 2017/2018.

A society of active refrigeration engineers with hands-on experience, the LRS has a history which goes back 50 years.

The LRS meets socially during the cooler months for updates on technology, legislation and information on associated products.

The current venue is in South East London at The Greenwich Tavern, with the meetings scheduled on the second Thursday of the month from September to April, from 7.30pm until 9.30pm.

Brendan O’Reilly from the LRS commented: “It is very informal and it’s a great society for your staff to belong to.”

The LRS was formed in the 1960s following the demise of the Refrigeration Serviceman’s Association, and aims to help engineers keep abreast of the latest developments in air conditioning and refrigeration.

As the gases carbon dioxide, methyl chloride, sulphur dioxide and ammonia fell from grace, the  ‘non-smelly’, ‘non-flammable’ and ‘totally safe’ R12 and R22 compounds came into common use and membership grew.

The LRS is still comprised of hands-on engineering folk interested in improving  and disseminating knowledge of refrigeration and air conditioning, and is affiliated with the Institute of Refrigeration.

Mr O’Reilly added: “We hope, through the keenness of new comers to the trade, we will still be around for another 50 years, helping to pass on our knowledge and encouraging suppliers and manufacturers to share their expertise and developments with the active guys at the sharp end.”

The LRS has now released its timetable of upcoming events, which are listed as follows:
