There is still time to submit proposals for papers for the inaugural IIR Conference on the Application of HFO Refrigerants, to be held in Birmingham next September.
The deadline for abstracts has been extended to 20 October. Papers exploring and reporting on the conference themes are invited, these include:
- characteristics of HFO refrigerants
- design issues for systems, components and controls
- safety issues (flammability risk analysis, design considerations, operating experience)
- legislation, codes of practise and standards
- responsible use and environmental considerations
To be considered for the conference programme submit a 150-word abstract at www.ior.org.uk/HFO2018. The organisers would particularly welcome abstracts for papers which showcase UK and international innovation and practical case studies of how HFO refrigeration technology is being introduced and used. Papers that compare and contrast HFOs with other with other low and moderate GWP fluids such as ammonia, CO2, hydrocarbons and R32 will also be considered.
The event will take place at IET Birmingham Austin Court between 2-5 September 2018. This conference will provide an opportunity for the scientists developing new working fluids to meet with the design engineers who provide products and the system installers who use them, together with representatives of the end-user community who get first-hand experience of these scientific and technical decisions. It will be a unique chance for these groups to interact in a forum specifically focused on the practical aspects of developing these new refrigerants
