Gas Detection for Refrigerants in a Changing Landscape
The global refrigerant market is evolving to incorporate a wider mix of refrigerant types, driven by the HFC phase-down outlined in F-Gas Regulations. As HVAC-R equipment design is modified for compatibility with mildly flammable refrigerants, gas detection may be required in multiple locations for different purposes.

Process Safety and Combustible Dust
Anybody who has created a small fire burst using non-dairy creamer and a lighter can relate to the potential for a fire in a larger scale. Other examples of the potential devastating effect of dust in fires of explosions are grain storage silos which on occasion will be shown on the nightly news. In this article we will explore how inserting can work to help preventing fires in vessels containing combustible dusts.
Pumped Up: Mini IDs Get an Enhancement
The innovative MSA Mini ID Refrigerant Identifiers, powered by Neutronics technology, have been enhanced. The cost effective Mini ID helps automotive mechanics quickly and accurately confirm R-1234yf or R-134a purity in vehicles to safeguard the mechanic, help avoid potential damage to expensive air conditioning service equipment and protect your shop from refrigerant contamination.
Aiming to Further Reduce HFC Refrigerant Use
As we ring in the new year, the phase down and production of high Global Warming Potential (GWP) HFC refrigerants continues to accelerate for 2023. By the end of September 2023, the consumption of HFCs will decrease by 10% of the baseline 303.9 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent to 273.5 MMTCO2e. This means less R-134a, R-410A, R-404A, R-407C, and many other common gases used today. This phase down will bring along a transition to new solutions but will ultimately drive-up price in the short term as the supply of HFCs decrease and demand continues.
