What’s in a name?

We are TORR, not Tour or Tore  or Tor!
Named after a unit of pressure regularly used in refrigeration to measure the depth of a vacuum.

The unit was named after Evangelista Torricelli, an Italian physicist and mathematician who discovered the principle of the barometer in 1644.

1 Atmosphere = 760 Torr
1 Bar = 750 Torr
1 psi = 51.71 Torr

Once a refrigeration system’s pipe work has been completed and pressure tested, we use a vacuum pump to remove all the air & moisture from the system, until we achieve and can hold a vacuum of just 2 Torr!
