The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) will mark its 120th anniversary on December 4 with a talk on the history of the HallScrew compressor at the RAF Museum in Hendon.
 
The IOR was formed December 8 1899 at a meeting chaired by R Leonard  and was initially known as the Cold Storage and Ice Association reflecting the early days of refrigeration in the UK, which was based on ice imports. 
In a joint event with the London Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Society, Terry Young of J&E Hall will talk about the development of the HallScrew compressor, introduced in 1972 using a concept of single main rotor plus two gate rotors. 

Before the presentation at 4pm, those attending will have the opportunity to explore the museum and discover the story of the RAF.

There is also a webinar available for those unable to attend. For more information or to book a place, visit the IOR website.
