AHRI to assess flammable refrigerant detector performance

USA: The AHRI’s research arm is to assess refrigerant sensor and refrigerant detector performance requirements for flammable refrigerants.

Under the recently announced new research project – no 9014 – the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Technology Institute (AHRTI) will assess detector performance whether in an occupied space or a machinery room.

With relevant flammable refrigerants safety standards, such as ASHRAE Standard 15 and UL Standard 60335-2-40, beginning to be implemented in the US, this research project is designed to help clarify the necessary refrigerant detector requirements and how to specify them.
