What is Refrigeration tons to BTU per hour conversion

To convert refrigeration tons (RT) to BTU per hour (BTU/hr), you can use the following conversion factor:

1 RT = 12,000 BTU/hr

This means that to convert from refrigeration tons to BTU per hour, you need to multiply the value in refrigeration tons by 12,000.

For example, let's convert 2.5 refrigeration tons to BTU per hour:

BTU/hr = 2.5 RT * 12,000 BTU/hr = 30,000 BTU/hr

Therefore, 2.5 refrigeration tons is equal to 30,000 BTU per hour.

How to convert tons to BTU/hr

One refrigeration ton is equal to 12000 BTUs per hour:

1 RT = 12000 BTU/hr

One BTU per hour is equal to 8.33333×10-5 refrigeration ton:

1 BTU/hr = 8.33333×10-5 RT

So the power P in BTUs per hour (BTU/hr) is equal to 12000 times the power P in refrigeration tons (RT):

P(BTU/hr) = 12000 × P(RT)


Convert 2 RT to BTU/hr:

P(BTU/hr) = 12000 × 2 RT = 24000 BTU/hr
