The world is moving toward natural refrigerants. That was the message from the leadership of the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) at the 2015 IIAR Industrial Refrigeration Conference and Exhibition in San Diego.
Extech Instruments has introduced the RD300, a heated diode refrigerant leak detector that pinpoints leaks of all CFC, HCFC, and HFC refrigerants with three levels of sensitivity to leaks as small as 0.25 ounce (7 grams) per year.

Emerson Climate Technologies Inc. will host a webinar, “Seven Keys to Servicing CO2 Systems,” to explore the many operating implications of a CO2 (R-744)-based refrigeration system. The complimentary webinar will be held Tuesday, July 14, from 2 to 3 p.m. EDT.
If it sometimes seems confusing and difficult to identify and keep track of the various treaties and regulations that are having an effect on the refrigerants industry, that’s because it is. Here is a brief primer.
Between the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), HVACR contractors might feel as if they are facing a one-two regulatory punch. Especially on the refrigeration side, new regulations roll out of both the DOE and EPA regularly enough to keep things — shall we say — interesting.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) have announced a final settlement with Millard Refrigerated Services that resolves alleged violations related to an airborne release of ammonia from Millard’s Theodore, Alabama, facility in 2010.
The HVAC industry has a well-earned reputation for creating innovative new products that meet the demands of regulations and the desires of contractors and their customers, and the coil market is no exception.
Cleaning the coils on rooftop units may seem mundane, but it’s an important job that pays off for your customers in more efficient operation and longer living equipment. And, any job that’s worth doing is worth doing right.
