FETA has published a guidance note on A2L refrigerants and set up a working group on the subject.
An introduction to A2L refrigerants and their use in Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump applications has been produced by members of FETA associations and offers an overview of the new refrigerants, as well as some practical advice on their safe use, and some examples of different applications. It seeks to signpost the fact that these refrigerants will play an increasing role in the market over the coming years; particularly with regard to air conditioning, where future alternatives will be A2L type refrigerants.
Russell Beattie, Chief Executive of FETA, said: “The working group has been formed as a direct result of discussions at the FETA Annual Strategy Forum. It was clear that the subject of A2L refrigerants involved several FETA associations, and it was felt that a working group would be able to co-ordinate and communicate information on this important topic.
“The group will also be liaising with other organisations with interests in this area such as IoR, ACRIB and FSDF, as well as government departments, with a view to sharing knowledge and best practice across the industry.”
