Leak Detection

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.

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.

Refrigerant Tracking and Compliance Software: An Overview

Refrigerant management is the efficient, safe and cost-effective operation of your refrigeration equipment. Complying with evolving legislation, ensuring product quality and the safety of colleagues and customers, reducing operating expense and improving margins, while striving for 24/7/365 equipment uptime are all essential divisions in refrigerant management. Whether you’re an equipment owner or refrigeration contractor, responsible for single-site analysis or full enterprise deployment and reporting, you know the importance of refrigerant tracking and compliance.

Early Refrigerant Leak Detection for Food Retail

In most cases, the only way of knowing there’s a refrigerant leak in a supermarket is when the equipment fails. At this point, it’s too late to avoid the loss of food quality, damaged stock, and replacing the costly refrigerant. It doesn’t have to be like that. The MSA Parasense Enterprise Leak Detection (ELD) Platform provides early, low level refrigerant leak detection and notification which means as soon as a leak is found, rapid repairs can be arranged, saving stock, refrigerant, and revenue.
