UK: With the pressure on to switch to low GWP refrigerants, A-Gas is offering advice and assistance via its website.

Finding the right low GWP alternative can be a challenge for even the most experienced refrigeration specialist, so A-Gas’ online selection form Refrigerant Suggestions is intended to make the switch as easy as possible.

“There’s no silver bullet – no one refrigerant is a match for all systems. The selection criteria will differ but what we can do at A-Gas is look at the alternatives available and suggest the ones which are the best for you,” said A-Gas refrigerant product manager Roger Smith.

“There is a sample report to download which will provide an indication of the changes needed. Included in this is cooling duty, power requirements, charge sizes and other key elements. A-Gas technical experts are on hand to suggest which low GWP refrigerant options most closely match the system you are looking to convert. We can also carry out modelling to see how the new low GWP refrigerant will perform and this can provide an enhanced appreciation of the options available.”

A colour-coded report table is provided to assist the customer to make the right choice and this allows A-Gas to present a broad-based view on the new refrigerant and its operational parameters.

Mr Smith said: “We believe that our new online refrigeration suggestion form will help lighten the load when you switch to a low GWP refrigerant. Add to this the benefit of our expertise, you will be in a better position to make the right decision but with the greenest option available.”
