5 common refrigerant emission leak types uncovered from over 2.8 billion data points
Bacharach Inc., a leading provider of HVAC-R gas instrumentation for refrigerant leak detection and monitoring as well as combustion and emissions analysis is offering a free webinar for refrigerant contractors and equipment owners supporting efforts to drive down refrigerant emissions.
By classifying over 2.8 billion recorded refrigerant samples into five (5) easy-to-understand types, Bacharach’s Parasense software platform brings simplicity for those responsible for helping drive down refrigerant emissions.
Jason Ayres, Application Support Engineer for the Parasense software platform explains, “Each of the refrigerant leak types identified have their own behaviors and characteristics. It’s important that we share this information so that these leaks can be identified and stopped as early as possible,” he said. Ayres has over 20 years of experience in helping refrigeration system owners and contractors identify leaks, manage refrigerant and reduce energy consumption. Jason continues, “Leaks sometimes come and go depending on the operating conditions, making them very difficult and very time consuming to track down. That’s why we hope our webinar will explain the five common leak types we’ve come across in our 30 years’ experience in refrigerant leak detection and reporting.”
The importance of quickly detecting, notifying and fixing refrigerant leaks helps to ensure product quality, employee and customer safety, reduce operating costs and improving equipment performance for any industry where cooling and refrigeration is critical. The five common leak types that Bacharach has discovered as part of the largescale analysis of refrigerant leak samples can help improve understanding and drive down refrigerant leaks. The findings are available for FREE through Bacharach’s watch on demand “Leak Event Webinar”.
