Climalife training addresses A2L safety and compliance

UK: Refrigerant supplier Climalife UK partnered with Tewkesbury-based training consultancy Cool Concerns to deliver the first in a planned series of A2L training events last Tuesday.

The half-day technical training event at Climalife’s headquarters in Bristol was led by training refrigeration specialists Jane Gartshore and Stephen Benton. The focus was on the design and installation of systems, compliance with EN-378 and PE(S)R, and the adoption of the very low GWP refrigerants with particular emphasis on charge size.

With the F-gas phase down continuing to move at pace and with potential new regulation revisions on the horizon, Climalife sees an understanding of the standards, safety and training as now being more important than ever.

“As the first in our planned series of training events, the feedback from the first attendees has been very encouraging,” said Climalife UK MD Allan Harper. “We are already planning the arrangements for the next session in November where we expect to see more of our current customers and potential customers seeing the benefits of this training event.”
