Tons to BTU/hr conversion
The British thermal unit per hour (symbol: Btu/h) is a United States customary system unit of power. This unit is often abbreviated as simply "Btu," which is the same abbreviation used for British thermal units, a measurement of heat. One watt, the International System of Units derived unit of power, is equal to approximately 3.41214 Btu/h.
A ton of refrigeration (TR) is a unit of power. It is defined as the power required to melt or freeze 2000 pounds, also known as one short ton, of ice per day. The ton is more often a unit of mass. A ton of refrigeration is approximately equal to 12,000 BTU/h or 3.5 kW.
How to convert BTU/hr to tons
One refrigeration ton is equal to 12000 BTUs per hour:
1 RT = 12000 BTU/hr
One BTU per hour is equal to 8.33333×10-5 refrigeration ton:
1 BTU/hr = 8.33333×10-5 RT
So the power P in refrigeration tons (RT) is equal to the power P in BTUs per hour (BTU/hr) divided by 12000:
P(RT) = P(BTU/hr) / 12000
Convert 10000 BTU/hr to tons:
P(RT) = 10000 BTU/hr / 12000 = 0.83333 RT
