A-Gas Product Manager for Refrigerants Roger Smith on why mildly flammable refrigerants will have a major impact on the industry.
At A-Gas we’ve been keeping a close watch on the progress of A2L refrigerants as we believe they can make a real impact on the industry. In the right circumstances, A2Ls, or mildly flammables as they are often known, give users a great deal of breathing room in terms of the F-Gas Regulations. At A-Gas we are encouraging businesses to try out some of these new refrigerants, gain experience of using them and ultimately understand how they perform.
There are significant changes underway in the industry with R32 being ushered into the UK market, but knowing what you need to upgrade can be a minefield. Advanced Engineering Technical Director Colin Pratt explains why you might not have to fret just yet.
‘R32 Safe’ and ‘A2L Safe’. These terms are everywhere in the industry at the moment. Understandably, some of you may be dreading having to potentially spend thousands of pounds to upgrade your equipment to ensure compliance.
But the truth is you may not need to.
