Focus on Refrigeration Safety: IIR re-inaugurates Working Group
Expert at Johnson Controls to chair IIR Working Group on Refrigeration Safety
The IIR Working Group now on “Refrigeration Safety” will soon be relaunched and is ready to welcome a new chairperson.
The recently re-inaugurated Working Group (WG), now on Refrigeration Safety, will bring to the forefront the market transition from traditional refrigerants to new alternative refrigerants. Today, engineers, technicians and entire structures must ensure that they are sufficiently prepared to handle these new refrigerants safely.
Alexander Cohr Pachai, a senior engineer and technology manager at the Johnson Controls Sabroe Factory in Denmark, will take the lead of this WG as the new chair, and already has an ambitious work plan set out ahead of him.
The WG objectives
The WG aims to document experiences with natural, as well as new alternative refrigerants, by:
- Creating, examining and analysing an international accidents database, starting with new accidents.
- Developing practical processes and procedures to put in place for the safe handling of refrigerants.
- Publishing guidelines for the safe handling of and working with refrigerants based on the collected data.
Who can participate?
WG members can be either Commission members, private members or representatives of corporate members of the IIR. Non-IIR members with the relevant technical expertise can also participate.
