Cool-Talks-copyUK: Service engineers and technicians in the South West have the opportunity to discuss key refrigeration issues at a free to attend breakfast meeting in May.

The Institute of Refrigeration is organising the Cool Talks Breakfast Briefing in conjunction with hosts A-Gas at the refrigerant supplier’s headquarters in Portbury, near Bristol, on May 19.

The event will discuss the latest developments in low GWP refrigerants, tips on how to handle glide efficiency and handy advice on preventing compressor failure.

Expert advice will be provided by A-Gas md John Ormerod, Gordon Adams from the IoR Service Engineers Section and Bitzer UK md and IOR Council member Kevin Glass.

“The F-gas regulations are changing how we work in the industry and the introduction of low GWP refrigerants are at the heart of this,” said John Ormerod. “Our breakfast briefing will cover issues arising from these developments and provide an opportunity to answer your key questions. For example, what is different about HFO refrigerants? What does glide efficiency mean in practice and how does this relate to prevent compressor failure? 

“We are also inviting our guests to raise other industry issues which they may like us to cover at future breakfast events.”

Admission is free and the doors open at 8.30am with coffee or tea and bacon rolls available on arrival. The packed programme continues until 11am when there will be a further opportunity for networking.
