For the resolution of challenges in the area of research
The Research and Technology Committee of AHRI recently established a flammable refrigerants subcommittee that will seek to develop a set of application requirements for the use of 2L refrigerants. As per the announcement from the institute, the subcommittee will determine gaps in existing flammable refrigerant research, identify organisations willing to collaborate with AHRI and develop a roadmap with priorities and a timeline for how to complete the necessary research.
“The industry needs to develop a complete list of research needs in order to provide the scientific results necessary to support the safe use of flammable refrigerants in the future,” said AHRI Director of Research, Xudong Wang. “AHRI will play an important role by establishing collaboration within the industry and among relevant organisations, and by conducting research and publishing relevant results.”
According to AHRI, subcommittee members will include flammability experts; standard and code experts; representatives from residential, commercial and refrigeration sectors, including products and applications; and experts in installation, operation and maintenance.
