J. M. Krochta FST 50 Spring 2008 FST 50 – Introduction to Food Preservation Homework #1 – Refrigeration Load Due Friday, April 18, 2006 Refrigeration Load for Freezing Green Peas .   Your company wishes to buy a freezer capable  of reducing the temperature of 1000 lbs of peas/hr (W), from an initial  temperature (T i ) of 70°F  down to a storage temperature (T s ) of –18°F.  Using the heat capacity (specific heat) of green  peas with water in the liquid state, latent heat of fusion (freezing) for green peas, heat capacity  (specific) for green peas in the frozen state and average respiration rate for the green peas  during the process listed below, calculate the refrigeration load (H R ) required of the freezer in  Btu/hr.  To simplify the calculation, assume all the water in the peas freezes at 30°F (T
