part of its evaluation of alternative HVAC refrigerants with low global warming
potential, the institute would like manufacturers and research laboratories to
test the products it has identified as the most promising.
intent of the program is to help industry select promising low GWP
refrigerants, understand technical challenges, avoid duplicative efforts, and
efficiently use industry resources," said AHRI’s vice president of
regulation and research, Karim Amrane.
are to be done in three categories: compressor calorimeter tests, drop-in
system tests and soft-optimized system tests. Companies interested will be
required to perform all tests at their laboratories with at least one candidate
refrigerant compared to its baseline, using its own resources, at the company’s
expense. Participants will have early access to results.
results will eventually be released to the public, the AHRI said.
