Welcome to year zero. The waiting is over and the F-Gas regulation has passed into law and life as we know it changes forever. Over-dramatic? Well, it will be a dramatic shift for everyone in the industry who thus far have somehow managed to avoid all the noise from the supermarkets about the need to move away from HFCs.
The first UK-manufactured chiller incorporating the low global warming potential (GWP) HFO refrigerant R-1234ze is now cooling shoppers visiting the new £15 million John Lewis department store that opened in York.
Beyond making refrigeration equipment and refrigerant gases, manufacturers of such products are also involved in developments within the industry that show global sweep. Here are several recent announcements involving manufacturers familiar to contractors and service technicians.
Asahi Glass Co. Ltd. (AGC) has announced the development of AMOLEA™, a new refrigerant for air conditioning systems that has a global warming potential (GWP) of about one-sixth that of HFC-410A while delivering equivalent performance.
In the business of refrigeration, there have been recent developments in refrigerant research, supermarket energy-efficiency improvements, and the acquisition of a commercial refrigeration equipment manufacturer.
