IIR Informatory Note: flammable refrigerants

With the phase-out of ozone depleting substances there has been growing interest in the application of flammable refrigerants. Download the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR)’s new Informatory Note on ‘flammable refrigerants’.

Following the Kigali Amendment under the Montreal Protocol concerning the phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons, it is highly likely that flammable refrigerants will comprise the majority of refrigerants in the medium to long term, according to the IIR.

Flammability hazards arising from the use and application of these refrigerants have until now been of limited concern to domestic and commercial sectors. Therefore, it is essential that stakeholders understand and become familiar with the relevant considerations for handling the flammability hazards that affect their application.

Focus on flammable refrigerants

The 36th IIR Informatory Note on ‘Flammable Refrigerants’ provides a comprehensive introduction to matters such as flammability characteristics, classifications, governing rules such as safety standards and regulations covering the entire lifetime of systems and equipment including transportation, system design and construction and service, maintenance and other refrigerant handling activities.

This Informatory Note was prepared by Daniel Colbourne and was reviewed by several experts from the IIR network.

IIR members can download this Informatory Note for free.
