Danfoss’s annual Refrigerant Week event will return for the third time from September 16 to 20. This year, the focus will be on equipping contractors and installers for refrigerant change and presenting the solutions that are ready today.

The global event will prepare contractors and installers — along with retailers, wholesalers, operators, and OEM engineers — to handle the refrigerant transition’s accelerating pace through a packed program of webinars, podcasts, and local training events.

“Refrigerant transition is an issue that affects contractors and installers all around the world, and the global nature of our Refrigerant Week reflects that,” said Torben Funder-Kristensen, head of public and industry affairs, Danfoss Cooling. “We want to help professionals everywhere to stay abreast of the latest issues and trends, but more importantly, to contribute to the conversation and give their view.”

To that end, a series of live, free webinars will be conducted during Refrigerant Week, which include:

  • Global trends on refrigerants and regulations: Get an overview of HFC legislation and the main applications for new refrigerants, and some advice from Danfoss experts (September 16).
  • Global trends and drivers for cold chain technology: Learn about the current trends and drivers for cold chain technology and see examples of real-world implementation (September 17).
  • Handling A2L and A3 refrigerants, charging procedures and how to service: Learn how to safely lower GWP in commercial refrigeration applications using A2L and A3 flammable refrigerants (September 17).
