Refrigeration Museum Lessons
"Some of the things to be learned
in the refrigeration research museum:
* The importance of innovation.
* The importance of intensive field
testing prior to large scale production.
* Necessity for qualified engineering
approval, not overridden by excessive
* What types of systems are most
trouble free or efficient.
* Size of company by no means guarantees its strength, quality of products
* Are there other designs of systems
that may be superior that have not yet
* Quality is the degree of perfection.
Value is maximum quality at minimum
cost. But both quality and minimum costs
depend first of all upon original design."
