A refrigeration ton is approximately equivalent to 12,000 BTU/h or 3.5 kW. Air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment capacity in the U.S. is often specified in "tons" (of refrigeration). Many manufacturers also specify capacity in BTU/h, especially when specifying the performance of smaller equipment.

- Ton of refrigeration is the standard unit of refrigeration.

- The capacity to freeze 1 ton of water from and at 0° C in 24 hrs is called as one ton of refrigeration.

- One ton of refrigeration = 12000 B Th U/hr (British thermal unit

and 1 B Th U is equal to 1.055 kJ)

- In SI system, One ton of refrigeration = 200 B Th U/min x 1.055 kJ/min = 3.517 kJ/s or kW
