Danfoss set to conduct Refrigerant Week
Nordborg, Denmark, 26 August 2019: Danfoss will conduct the third cycle of its annual Refrigerant Week event from September 16 and 20, the company said through a Press release. The focus of the third cycle will be on equipping installers involved in changing refrigerants and presenting solutions that are ready and available, the release added.
According to the release, the global event will prepare installers – alongside resellers, wholesalers, operators and OEM engineers – to handle the accelerating pace of refrigerant transition, through a packed programme of webinars, podcasts and local training events.
All webinars, the release said, will be scheduled to give as many installers as possible, in a wide variety of time zones, the opportunity to tune in live, for subjects including:
- Handling flammable refrigerants
- New developments in CO2 technology
- Moving on from R404A and R22
- Global refrigerant trends that impact your business
- Digital tools to help conversion
According to the release, sessions will cover industrial, commercial and food refrigeration, as well as air conditioning. There will be content in many different languages, to ensure global coverage, the release said.
Torben Funder-Kristensen, Head of Public and Industry Affairs, Danfoss Cooling, said: “Refrigerant transition is an issue that affects installers all round the world, and the global nature of our Refrigerant Week reflects that. We want to help professionals everywhere to stay abreast of the latest issues and trends but, more importantly, to contribute to the conversation and give their view.
“We based the program on frequently asked questions from HVAC-R professionals, so whether you want to know more about transitioning from R404A and Handling A2L and A3 refrigerants, or you simply want the latest practical information on leading-edge CO2 technologies, we’re confident there’s something for everyone.
“2019 is a particularly important milestone in HVAC-R. We celebrate 32 years since the Montreal Protocol came into force. And the results are remarkable, the world has moved away from CFCs to help stop ozone depletion, and we’re now even seeing a recovery of the ozone layer.
“But, as we enter a new phase of environmental concern with skyrocketing CO2 emissions, it’s never been more important to discuss and debate refrigeration on a supranational scale – including the new amendments to the Montreal Protocol. We’re proud of how Danfoss Refrigeration Week facilitates these conversations, and we’re delighted how much it has grown in three years.”
