One of the most cost-effective alternatives to R22 in order to minimize the effects of future regulations such as the phase-out of HFCs and other global warming and ozone depleting synthetic fluids is the use of low charge ammonia.
San Francisco, California (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
Azane will be represented at the event by US Business Development Manager Derek Hamilton, who will be speaking at the event, as well as chairing a session on industrial refrigeration including R22 phase out, regulations and legislation affecting the HVACR industry.
Derek will be taking part in the Industrial Refrigeration & Other Applications session on Wednesday 18th June with a presentation at 16:30 PDT entitled “Low charge ammonia – the natural replacement for R22.” The presentation will focus on the impending R22 phase out timetable, refrigerant alternatives and low charge ammonia as a future proof, low cost solution.
Hamilton says, “The HVACR industry is facing a big challenge in the United States. The EPA’s phase-out timetable for R22 means that the amount of R22 produced is being gradually decreased. This will undoubtedly lead to continuous price increase until a complete ban on production comes into force in 2020. One of the most cost-effective alternatives to minimize the effects of future regulations such as the phase-out of HFC’s and other global warming and ozone depleting synthetic fluids is the use of low charge ammonia.
“Ammonia is a natural non-ozone depleting refrigerant with zero global warming potential that will not be affected by future regulations. Recent technological advancements have allowed the deployment of low charge ammonia systems for industrial applications.”
He has also been selected to chair the Industrial Refrigeration & Other Applications information session, which will also feature presentations from other manufacturers.
The sessions will run in parallel and will be divided into three sections – Industrial Refrigeration & Other Applications, Commercial Refrigeration and HVAC – to allow for the high number of leading industry participants at ATMOsphere this year. Derek’s session will coincide with Andre Patenaude of Emerson Climate Technologies, Vijayanand Periannan of Munters Des Champs and Bruce Nelson of Colmac Coil.
Guests will also be invited to ask questions at the end of the session.
ATMOsphere America 2014 will take place at The Westin Market Street in San Francisco, California from the 17th-19th June. Places are still available and interested parties can register to book a place at Azane's website, http://www.azane-inc.com/atmosphere-2014.aspx.
