AHRI Announces Second Webinar In Refrigerant Series
September 23, 2020

The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) has announced a new series of five webinars will be presented on various aspects of flammable refrigerant research. The webinars are scheduled to be held each Wednesday between September 23rd and October 21st. To date, the research has informed technical updates to safety standards that will enable compliance with global regulations that phase down the use of high-global warming potential refrigerants.

This virtual forum will build on material covered in the Flammable Refrigerant Research and Planning Conference held in October 2018, which examined research performed in collaboration with Department of Energy, California Air Resources Board, ASHRAE, AHRI, and others.

Manufacturers, channel partners, policy makers, fire service personnel, and building code and environmental experts are encouraged to participate. The free sessions will feature panel discussions and presentations from industry experts, including principal investigators on flammable refrigerant research projects.

The second in the series, Commercial Refrigeration Applications, will be held on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.

AHRI Vice President of Research Xudong Wang will lead a panel of experts to discuss IEC/UL Standard 60335-2-89 and refrigerant charge level requirements. Panelists will summarize the most recent test results on dispersion and ignition tests of low-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants in commercial refrigeration display cases. The testing has covered A2L and A3 refrigerants, and the session will include a comparison of these refrigerants on an equivalent basis for single-door and three-door reach-in coolers.

Registration for the second webinar is now available.
