“Our webcast presenters will offer insight into how the refrigerant industry will meet the needs of installed packaged and split-system air conditioners and specifically VRF systems,” said Steve Piccolo, chair of the Webcast Ad Hoc committee. “We hope to expose viewers to the expanding refrigerant technology and explain why low-GWP refrigerants are necessary options.”
Opening remarks will be provided by 2018-2019 ASHRAE President Sheila J. Hayter, P.E.
Viewers will learn:
- How the refrigerant industry will meet the needs of installed packaged and split-system air conditioners, specifically VRF systems;
- Future trends in DX air conditioning (including VRF) equipment design, performance, and application; and
- Future of low-GWP refrigerant options for unitary products; if future refrigerant retrofits are possible; and how to recognize the challenges and best practices in working with flammable refrigerants.
