Elastomeric Material Means Condensation Prevention
September 2, 2013
The suction line of a refrigeration system is normally insulated with a flexible, closed-cell elastomeric material. Insulating the suction line is done to prevent condensate from developing and dripping off. It also limits the amount of heat added to the refrigerant as it travels back to the compressor.

Ammonia is both a friend to refrigeration contractors and a danger, too. When used properly in refrigeration units, its outstanding heat transfer capabilities can keep food cold for long periods of time, it does not harm the environment, and it is biodegradable. But exposure to ammonia does pose a danger to human health.
