## How many BTUs is a 1 ton?

12,000 BTU/hr.

That number is generally rounded up to 12,000 BTU/hr. So, a one ton air conditioning unit has the capacity to cool up to 12,000 BTU/hr.

## How many BTUs is 3 tons?

36,000 BTU/hr

There’s a complicated mathematical formula involved in converting the weight of that ice into energy, but in the end a “ton” of air conditioning capacity represents roughly 12,000 BTU per hour. So a 2-ton unit has 24,000 BTU/hr capacity and a 3-ton has 36,000 BTU/hr, and so on.

**What is TR in AC?**

A ton of refrigeration (TR or TOR), also called a refrigeration ton (RT), is a unit of power used in some countries (especially in North America) to describe the heat-extraction capacity of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.

### How do you calculate TR on a compressor?

Some commercial and industrial refrigeration systems are rated in Tons of Refrigeration (TR, tons). A ton is the amount of heat removed by an air conditioning system that would melt 1 ton (2000 lbs.)…Converting between Btu/h and Tons of Refrigeration.

Btu/h | Refrigeration Ton | kW |
---|---|---|

48000 | 4 | 14.1 |

54000 | 4 1/2 | 15.8 |

60000 | 5 | 17.6 |

### What is TR in AC capacity?

ton of refrigeration

A ton of refrigeration (TR or TOR), also called a refrigeration ton (RT), is a unit of power used in some countries (especially in North America) to describe the heat-extraction capacity of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.

**What is 1tr in refrigeration?**

A ton of refrigeration (TR) is a unit of heat extraction capacity of the refrigeration or cooling equipment. Generally, TR is defined as the amount of heat transferred to freeze or melt 1 short ton of ice at 0 deg. C in 24 hours. 1 TR is approximately equal to 12000 BTU or 3024 Kcal/hr of energy/heat load.

#### How do you calculate AC TR?

To estimate your AC tonnage needs, multiply the number of square feet you’re cooling times 25. This equals the total number of BTUs you need to adequately cool your space. Next, divide that number by 12,000 to determine the tonnage capability you need in your new air conditioning unit.

#### How many BTU is a 2.5 ton unit?

30,000 BTU

Convert BTU To Tons: How Many BTU In A Ton?

Tonnage | BTU |
---|---|

2.5 Ton to BTU: | 30,000 BTU |

3 Ton to BTU: | 36,000 BTU |

4 Ton to BTU: | 48,000 BTU |

5 Ton to BTU: | 60,000 BTU |

**How do you calculate 1TR?**

internationally accepted standard for measuring the cooling effect of any refrigerator. Amount of cooling given by 1 ton of ice in 24 hours. 1TR= 900.7*335/(24*60) = 209.5kj/min = 210kj/min(aprox.)

## What is the value of 1TR?

Generally, TR is defined as the amount of heat transferred to freeze or melt 1 short ton of ice at 0 deg. C in 24 hours. 1 TR is approximately equal to 12000 BTU or 3024 Kcal/hr of energy/heat load.
