A-Gas to host breakfast meeting
UK: The Institute of Refrigeration and A-Gas is hosting another free breakfast briefing, this time on the subject of new refrigerants.
This next event takes place on Thursday November 17 at A-Gas’ headquarters in Portbury near Bristol. It will cover the latest developments in low GWP refrigerants, how HFO refrigerants are different, what wide glide means in practice and how to prevent component failure.
Designed to provide practical advice for service engineers and technicians, this latest Cool Talks Breakfast Briefing will build on the success of similar events at Dean & Wood last month and a previous Cool Talks hosted by A-Gas in May.
The event starts at 8.30am with coffee or tea and bacon rolls available on arrival. It is due to end at 11am when there will be a further opportunity for networking.
It is open to members and non members but places are limited, so please book online here.
