Het koudemiddel ammoniak./ L'ammoniac en tant que frigorigène.

Auteurs : KOELET P. C.


Some people still persist in stating that NH3 is a dangerous refrigerant. Several years ago, when a disaster occurred in Enschede (Netherlands) because a fireworks factory caught fire, some newspapers published horror scenarios, asserting that cities are full of time bombs, such as slaughterhouses, breweries and skating rinks equipped with ammonia refrigerating plants. Such a sensation in the newspapers resulted only in the sole danger that ammonia can present, namely "panic". It is obvious, since CFCs appeared on the market, that from certain sides there was a campaign against the use of ammonia refrigerating plants. This disinformation is still going on.
