Author(s) : BITZER

Type of monograph: Guide/Handbook, Booklet


This edition supersedes all previous issues. It deals with possibilities for a short and medium term change to environmentally benign refrigerants in medium and large commercial refrigeration and A/C plants. At the same time, the experience which already exists is also dealt with as well as the resulting consequences for plant technology.
