BTU per hour to refrigeration tons conversion

Result in refrigeration tons:RT

How to convert BTU/hr to tons

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

P(RT) = P(BTU/hr) / 12000
