Mitsubishi Electric has said that lower flammability R32 refrigerant will remain a vital solution to help industry curb its environmental footprint up until at least the late 2020s. The appeal of the gas as a readily available lower GWP solution could also then be further extended beyond the next decade in a blended form, the manufacturer has claimed.
Several appliance manufacturers such as CIAT and Mitsubishi Electric have further expanded their R32 range of split systems as part of ongoing efforts to fully phase out R410A equipment.
With the first ever World Refrigeration Day set for June 26 this year, April’s RAC Magazine considers the importance of the event in recognising the significant challenges in trying to sustainably meet increasing demand for cooling systems and services.
Mitsubishi Electric has said that UK demand for RAC and PAC systems has dramatically shifted within the last two years away from use of R410A to lower GWP R32 refrigerant.
Toshiba Air Conditioning will be hosting a series of training events this year for installers focused on handling R32 and other flammable refrigerant.
Free-to-attend event in London on May 17 will look at practicalities of adapting to changing refrigerant market in light of F-Gas regulation
Samsung has said it intends to step up the supply of cooling solutions making use of R32 refrigerant later this year for a range of products such as its new ‘wind-free’ air conditioners system designed to ensure improved comfort by curbing use of direct air flow.
ACRIB, the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry Board, has endorsed a warning issued by FETA earlier this week over the safety and operational risks of retrofitting mildly flammable R32 gas in to systems designed exclusively for the non-flammable R410A.
AREA is among four major HVAC bodies calling on the European cooling industry to immediately stop installing R404A and R507A systems in order to meet stricter HFC quota restrictions that came into effect this year.
AREA has said that the coming steep quota reduction in HFC refrigerants should move forward as planned
