ASHRAE Publishes 2010 Editions of Refrigerant Safety Standards
October 18, 2010

The 2010 editions of The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineer’s (ASHRAE’s) major refrigerants-related standards have been published as a package with 14 new refrigerant blends added.

Requirements in ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 34-2010, Designation and Safety Classification of Refrigerants, and ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 15-2010, Safety Standard for Refrigeration System, complement each other in that Standard 34 describes a shorthand way of naming refrigerants and assigns safety classifications based on toxicity and flammability data, while Standard 15 establishes procedures for operating equipment and systems when using those refrigerants. ASHRAE sells the standards as a set.

Standard 34-2010 combines the 2007 standard and 37 published addenda. Changes to Standard 15 include incorporation of nine new addenda. Standard 15-2010 and Standard 34-2010 are sold together. The cost is $89 ($75 ASHRAE members). To order visit www.ashrae.org/bookstore.
