#### Kilowatts to refrigeration tons

A kilowatt (symbol: kw) is a unit of strength within the International System of Units (SI). The base unit of the kilowatt is the watt, which become named after Scottish inventor James Watt. As is consistent with SI units, the prefix kilo- means that a kilowatt equals 1000 watts or a thousand joules per second.

A ton of refrigeration (TR) is a unit of strength. It is defined as the energy required to soften or freeze 2000 pounds, also called one short ton, of ice in step with day. The ton is greater frequently a unit of mass. A ton of refrigeration is approximately equal to 12,000 BTU/h or three.5 kW.

#### How to convert kW to lots

One refrigeration ton is identical to a few.5168525 kilowatts:

1 RT = three.5168525 kW

One kilowatt is identical to 0.284345 refrigeration ton:

1 kW = 0.28434517 RT

So the electricity P in refrigeration lots (RT) is equal to the electricity P in kilowatts (kW) divided by 3.5168525:

P(RT) = P(kW) / three.5168525

#### Example

Convert five kW to heaps:

P(RT) = five kW / 3.5168525 = 1.4217 RT
