Refrion obtains the certification for the production of PED (Pressure Equipment Directive) category II finned pack heat exchangers. These new solutions use the A2L refrigerant gas which have a low GWP (Global Warming Potential).
In fact, traditional refrigerant gases used so far could generate a worrying increase in the greenhouse effect if released into the atmosphere, a process that, as we know, ends to impact the global warming.
Environmental impacts that are measured through the GWP (Global Warming Potential) index, so using a refrigerant with a low GWP is fundamental for eco-sustainability.
The decision to use the A2L gases it was an easy one for Refrion because it fully complies with our company mission to safeguard our planet, as well as meet the recent regulations, which are meant to make obsolete the highly polluting refrigerants with an high GWP value.
In addition to the environmental sustainability, safety is also an important topic. This is why obtain the PED category II certification is necessary condition to produce heat exchangers that will use low-impact refrigerant gases
PED II certification: another leap forward for the CoolGeneration.
