A refrigeration ton is approximately equivalent to

**12,000 BTU**/h or 3.5 kW. Air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment capacity in the U.S. is often specified in "tons" (of refrigeration). Many manufacturers also specify capacity in BTU/h, especially when specifying the performance of smaller equipment.So, how many Btus are there in one boiler horsepower?

A common definition of one boiler horsepower is the amount of energy required to produce 34.5 pounds (15.65 kg) of steam per hour at pressure and temperature 0 psig (0 bar) and 212

^{o}F (100^{o}C) - with feed water at pressure 0 psig and temperature 212^{o}F. One boiler horsepower is about**33479 Btu**per hour (about 9812 watts,What is 1 boiler horsepower?

**1 Horsepower**(

**boiler**): The energy rate needed to evaporate 34.5lb of water at 212 °F (100 °C) in

**one**hour. Equal to 33,475 BTU/h. Approximately 9.810657 x 10

^{3}.
