UK: Refrigeration wholesaler Beijer Ref has extended its partnership with training provider Cool Concerns for a fourth consecutive year.
The Tewkesbury-based training business, owned and run by Jane Gartshore and Stephen Benton, provides Beijer Ref with exclusive training and support for natural refrigerants in the UK and Ireland.
With the industry moving towards lower GWP refrigerants, engineers are coming into contact with both high pressure refrigerants like CO2 and flammable gases like hydrocarbons and some HFC, HFO and HFC blends.
When Beijer Ref UK & Ireland launched its Cubo2 Smart CO2 condensing unit in 2018 Cool Concerns – a company with a deep understanding of working with CO2 – were on hand to provide installer training at its dedicated state-of-the-art facility. In addition to CO2, Cool Concerns’ training rigs operate on a range of refrigerants, including hydrocarbons and the latest variants of lower GWP HFCs.
In launching the Cubo2, Beijer Ref UK & Ireland recognised that the key to the sales strategy was to impart knowledge through training with natural refrigerants. “Cool Concerns was the obvious choice of training partner being established for many years in this specialised sector,” the company said in a statement.
“Sales and general interest in natural refrigerants continue to exceed expectations. As we venture into A2L equipment solutions it is important for us to have Cool Concerns by our side all the way,” it added.
