Environmental damage as a direct result of emissions and as an indirect result of energy consumption, both of which contribute to the greenhouse effect... Ozone depletion due to the effects of certain fluids... Fire and intoxication risks... Overconsumption of energy and fluids... These are some of the consequences of refrigerant leakage. Containment of refrigerants is a serious tightly regulated issue. Why is this the case and how should the matter be dealt with? The authors of Containment of Refrigeration Equipment attempt to answer these questions and aim to provide the reader with comprehensive and up-to-date information. The themes include parameters and types of leakage, detection, measurements, qualification of components, recommendations, prevention, methodology for containment control and standards. This book was commissioned by the “Containment” working group of the Cetim and Cetiat MFCE (refrigeration equipment, air-conditioners and heat exchangers) joint commission in close cooperation with Uniclima, the French air handling, air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment manufacturers’ association.
