NEW REFRIGERANT LEGISLATION: R22 PHASE-OUT

New legislation, coming into effect on 1 January 2015, is enforcing the removal and replacement of the low temperature refrigerant-R22 refrigeration system. R22 or HCFC-22 refrigerants are widely used throughout process chiller and industrial refrigerant plants, although these changes in legislation will affect any company that sustains the need for or has a high requirement for R22 refrigeration. Energyst cooling experts can help you with your R22 or HCFC-22 phase-out.

Why are the R22 legislation changes being made?

The reasoning behind the changes in the R22 refrigeration legislation is simple; studies have shown they have a detrimental effect on the ozone layer resulting in excessive UV levels. Due to this, the R22 refrigerants may contribute to further environmental damage.

Many companies have not yet undergone the process of exchanging their R22 refrigerants. Huge conversions still need to be undertaken to ensure that the 1 January 2015 deadline for R22 replacement is accomplished.

Additional complications come about when considering the pressure of changing a R22 refrigeration system has upon a company that relies upon the refrigerator for its daily running. Key to a smooth transition lies with ensuring the successful continuation of production processes while replacing R22 systems.
