IOR Conference on December 2nd to tackle refrigerant leakage and strategies for future-proof systems
On 2nd December the Institute of Refrigeration is calling together members and industry representatives to explore the linked themes of refrigerant containment, efficiency and reliability. Facing stronger legislation, new refrigerants, and challenging emissions reductions targets, the event is designed to help participants to reassess current strategies and priorities related to refrigerant use. What can we do to future-proof our systems, components and businesses?
Since the Institute began the series of initiatives under the title of Real Zero five years ago there have been significant developments in technologies, components and system design throughout industry - all with the specific agenda of improving refrigerant containment.
IOR President Graeme Maidment said: “One thing is clear, if you are still using the same techniques and practices that you were using five years ago, then you are not serious about refrigerant leakage reduction.”
This conference entitled “Real Zero 2013 - and beyond” will explore what has been learned about refrigerant leakage and containment in a series of evidence-based case studies.
This one day conference, which will take place at the Sainsbury’s conference centre in central London, will also consider:
- Why it is necessary to stop refrigerant leakage
- How efficiency and reliability are linked to containment of refrigerant
- Making changes that have been proven to reduce leakage rates and improve performance.
- Selecting technologies that support improved refrigerant management based on independent re-evaluation.
Graeme Maidment continues “As members of the Institute of Refrigeration we have a responsibility to promote the technical advancement of refrigeration in all its applications by improved methods and minimisation of its effects on the environment, through the sharing of good practice and promoting new developments.”
