How to convert refrigeration tons to BTU/hr

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

Tons to BTU/hr 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 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
