Refcom offers editable F-gas logbook
The European F-Gas Regulation 517/2014 require records to be kept of equipment containing 5 tonnes or more of CO2-equivalent F-gases, or more than 10 tonnes in the case of hermetically sealed equipment. A record is required of the quantity and type of F-gases installed, added or recovered during servicing, maintenance and final disposal.
Produced by Refcom, in association with European contractors’ group AREA, the new editable Excel file allows automatic calculation of CO2 equivalents of refrigerant GWPs and charge weights.
It is also available as a PDF file for those who prefer to complete it manually.
