Standard addresses cutting refrigerant release

Nov. 1, 2002
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has published ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 147-2002, Reducing Release

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has published ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 147-2002, Reducing Release of Halogenated Refrigerants from Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Equipment and Systems.

This standard establishes practices and procedures that will reduce inadvertent release of chlorine-containing and other halogen-containing refrigerants, such as halogenated chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs).

Many of the practices found in Standard 147 are familiar because they were previously published in ASHRAE Guideline 3-1996, Reducing Emission of Halogenated Refrigerants in Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Equipment and Systems, which is superseded by the new standard.

Cost of ASHRAE Standard 147-2002 is $31 ($25 for ASHRAE members). To order, phone ASHRAE Customer Service at 800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide); fax 404-321-5478; access www.ashrae.org; or contact ASHRAE, 1791 Tullie Circle NE, Atlanta GA 30329.
