Dr Edward Hammond has worked on projects to improve the performance of and reduce the energy consumption of domestic, commercial and retail refrigeration systems; and in many cases also converting to more environmentally benign, alternative refrigerants.
Edward has designed and built prototype refrigeration systems for novel or bespoke applications cooling anything from artwork to food and drink.
Most of his recent projects have focused on improving open retail display cases with extensive research into air curtains.
