Leakage of flammable clean refrigerants
from AC units in those small boxes can cause problems when the mixing ratio of flammable gases with air inside the box exceeds the lower explosion limit.
A technician can recycle refrigerant
by testing it for acid before removing it (recovery) from the system.
The most common result of using a counterfeit refrigerant
is decreased system performance.
6] performed an experimental investigation on a domestic refrigerator using refrigerant
mixtures consisting of propane, butane, and isobutane to replace the existing HFC134a refrigerant
1 INTEGRATED ECOSYSTEM OF ASIA-PACIFIC REFRIGERANT
If an equipment uses more refrigerant
than suggested, technicians can detect the leak.
While this method of characterizing the effects of refrigerant
leaks is appealing because of its simplicity, the resulting system design criteria are extremely conservative and can significantly constrain the system specification.
In 2011, Honeywell announced that the combined efforts of police, customs, local municipalities and other government officials in the UAE resulted in the seizure of approximately 6,000 containers of counterfeit refrigerant
being fraudulently sold under the Honeywell Genetron brand name.
The resin compound has proven successful in preventing leakage of the refrigerant
and the resulting corrosion of the polyamide resin.
Acquiring Solvay will enable Daikin to fully enter the refrigerant
business in Europe, inheriting in addition a sound production base on the continent which will help it achieve the above purpose.
81 per cent indicate they would prefer a brand-name refrigerant
for their home, office, car or refrigerator if it would limit the risks posed by counterfeit refrigerants
This paper investigates the tested performance of lower GWP candidate refrigerants
R-32, DR-5, and L-41a as alternatives for the baseline refrigerant
R-410A as well as ARM-31a, D2Y-65, L-40, and a 50.
