AHRTI Launches New Research Project
May 7, 2019

The Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI) research arm, the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Technology Institute (AHRTI), recently launched a new research project, No. 9014, Assess Refrigerant Detector Characteristics for Use in HVACR Equipment. The objective of this project is to assess refrigerant sensor and refrigerant detector performance requirements for flammable refrigerants for use with indoor HVACR equipment, whether in an occupied space or a machinery room. Relevant safety standards, such as ASHRAE Standard 15 and UL Standard 60335-2-40, have begun to implement refrigerant detector requirements for applications and products using flammable refrigerants. This research project is designed to help clarify the necessary refrigerant detector requirements and how to specify them.
