The London Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Society

AUGUST 2021 following Covid 19 close down


It is with deep regret that we are writing to tell you that after more than half a century the LRS has ceased to be a viable operation. The number of members attending meetings has dwindled and is now solely supported by the same loyal members who have attended the society for many years. The committee have all resigned following a recent meeting, and with no replacements coming forward to run the society, your committee have decided to close the activities of The London Refrigeration Society



Previous reports on our society

We are a society of active refrigeration engineers with "hands on experience" who have met for around 50 years socially during the cooler months for updates in products and legislation of associated products.

Our monthly Venue is in South London at GREENWICH TAVERN , 1 King William Walk , Greenwich, SE10 9JH

A Brief History

Its aims are to help engineers keep abreast of the latest developments in air conditioning and refrigeration. As the gasses Carbon Dioxide, Methyl Chloride, Sulphur Dioxide and Ammonia fell from grace, the wonders of those great "non smelly" "non flammable" and "totally safe" R12 and R22 compounds came into common use and our membership grew.
