How to convert BTU/hr to refrigeration tons

How to convert power in BTU per hour (BTU/h) to refrigeration tons (RT).

BTU/hr to tons conversion formula

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



Convert 10000 BTU/hr to tons:

P(RT) = 10000 BTU/hr / 12000 = 0.83333 RT
