This unit is frequently abbreviated as honestly "Btu," that is the equal abbreviation used for British thermal units, a dimension of warmth. One watt, the International System of Units derived unit of electricity, is same to about 3.41214 Btu/h.

A ton of refrigeration (TR) is a unit of energy. It is described because the strength required to melt or freeze 2000 kilos, additionally known as one short ton, of ice per day. The ton is greater regularly a unit of mass. A ton of refrigeration is approximately same to 12,000 BTU/h or three.Five kW.

#### How to transform BTU/hr to lots

One refrigeration ton is identical to 12000 BTUs according to hour:

1 RT = 12000 BTU/hr

One BTU consistent with hour is identical to eight.33333×10-five refrigeration ton:

1 BTU/hr = eight.33333×10-5 RT

So the energy P in refrigeration lots (RT) is same to the power P in BTUs in keeping with hour (BTU/hr) divided via 12000:

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

#### Example

Convert 10000 BTU/hr to heaps:

P(RT) = 10000 BTU/hr / 12000 = 0.83333 RT
