BRITISH ASSOCIATION FETA PUBLISHES GUIDANCE NOTE ON A2L (MILDLY FLAMMABLE) REFRIGERANTS

05.06.2017

The British FETA (Federation of Environmental Trade Associations) has published a guidance document on A2L (mildly flammable) refrigerants, used in Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps .

As the EU F-Gas Regulation no 517 (2014) is restricting the use of HFCs having a GWP higher than 2,500, both by use bans and by their progressive phase-down, newly developed refrigerants with lower GWPs are being introduced on the market, from which many exhibit a low flammability (ASHRAE Class A2L). It has therefore been considered useful to compile the existing knowledge about these refrigerants, in order to allow their safe use in a wide range of applications.
