REDUCING REFRIGERANT EMISSIONS FROM SUPERMARKET SYSTEMS
Gage*, C L. AND G. Troy. REDUCING REFRIGERANT EMISSIONS FROM SUPERMARKET SYSTEMS. ASHRAE JOURNAL 40(11):32-36, (1998).
To share information.
Large refrigeration systems are found in several applications including supermarkets, cold storage warehouses, and industrial processes. The sizes of these systems are a contributing factor to their problems of high refrigerant leak rates because of the thousands of connections, the large areas over which refrigerant is moved, and the large refrigerant charge sizes. While the examples given here for reducing refrigerant emissions are from the supermarket industry, the ideas and concepts behind these successful efforts can be applied to any large system.
