REFRIGERANTS FROM A DANFOSS PERSPECTIVE 4 — STANDARDS AND HOW TO ENSURE SAFETY
Watch this video to get a brief introduction to the safety standards that apply to the refrigeration industry. Increased risks of toxicity and flammability come with the new types of natural refrigerants and the understanding of safety standards has never been more important.
While traditional refrigerants are currently phased out due to environmental considerations and replaced by natural refrigerants the question of safety arises.
This video will give you an update on the classification of refrigerants according to toxicity and flammability. For instance, hydrocarbons are characterized by low toxicity and high flammability. Ammonia, on the other hand, has high toxicity and low flammability.
As the video explains, the safety issues related to the use of the new refrigerants have made risk assessment and compliance with standards a key component of any future refrigeration project. Standards like ISO, ASHRAE, IEC and CEN will help you navigate the new refrigerants and find a safe solution. The video will guide you in your exploration of the standards and find out which standards are applicable in your market …
