Refrigeration tons to BTU/hr conversion

It is a conversion calculator that is used to convert the power in refrigeration tons (RT) to power in BTU per hr (BTU/hr). The first procedure when using this converter is to enter the value of refrigeration tons in the blank text field.

Click the ‘Control' button to initiate the conversion from refrigeration tons to BTU per hour. The results will be displayed below the two controls at the bottom platform of the calculator. The ‘Reset' button is used to erase all data of previous calculations from the converter.

It enhances the efficiency of the calculator since it can only perform one conversion at a time. It also reduces the time needed to carry out new conversions.

Example

Convert 0.005 refrigeration tons to BTU per hour

Solution

First, enter the value in refrigeration tons (0.005) in the blank text field. Initiate the conversion by clicking the ‘Convert' button. The result in BTU per hour will be displayed as; 60 BTU/hr.

If you have a new value in refrigeration tons, click the ‘Reset' button and enter the figures in the blank text field. Use the same procedure to obtain the corresponding results in BTU per hour.

Formula used in converting Refrigeration tons to BTU per hour

1 RT = 12000 BTU per hr:

One refrigeration ton is equivalent to 12000 BTUs per hour.

1 BTU/hr = 8.33333 x 10-5 RT:

One BTU per hour is equivalent to 8.33333×10-5 refrigeration ton

Therefore, the power conversion formula of refrigeration tons to BTU/hr is given by;

P (BTU/hr) = 12000 x P (RT)

This implies that the power in BTU per hour is given by multiplying the power in refrigeration tons by 12000.

Using the example above,

Convert 0.005 refrigeration tons to BTU per hour

The calculation will be;

P (BTU/hr) = 12000 x 0.05 RT

=60 BTU per hour
