“The training delivered on its promise and it was a great forum for understanding the context of the discussion around refrigerants: where we are, where we are headed; and where we need to be.”

“Gave a clear idea of the refrigerants in the industry and their application and functionality based on applications. Also gave an idea of the codes and standards to refer to and follow as baseline.”

“Informative training and content is of very valuable technical information.”

Course Description

This training provides a background review of international treaties and initiatives that support the transition from hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) and hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants towards non-ozone-depleting, low-global-warming-potential substances. A review of proposed refrigerants and how they can be used in different HVAC&R applications based on theoretical and empirical analyses is discussed. Challenges and opportunities associated with the different types of refrigerants are presented, including hydrofluoroolefins and natural refrigerants. Current and future refrigerant options suiting the region are covered, as well as related standards and codes of systems and substances. Finally, the course wraps up with a discussion on the systems perspective and how to best understand the opportunities for energy-efficiency improvements along with hands-on experience with free software, such as life-cycle climate performance web applications and the heat pump design models.
