GERMANY: Compressor manufacturer Bitzer has released a new update to its highly respected biennial study on refrigerants.
Refrigerant Report 19 was released, as expected, at this week’s Chillventa show in Nuremberg.
The 44-page publication provides in-depth information on current refrigerants, the alternatives and most of the up-coming development blends. Importantly, it provides a relatively independent and unbiased compressor manufacturer’s view of the efficacy of many of the proposed alternatives, as well as information about their potential applications.
While there have been a handful of additions, and deletions, particularly to the list of HFO blends, this is not a huge update on the last edition released in 2014. Nevertheless, Refrigerant Report 19 retains its position as the industry’s essential guide to refrigerants
