Refrigeration and air conditioning technologies have thrived and become commonplace built upon the solid foundation of safe and efficient working fluids. However, regulations relating to the production of chlorine-containing refrigerants which deplete stratospheric ozone, means that the industry faces a number of years of unprecedented change.
The phaseout of CFC's and HCFC's has forced the foam industry to identify and adopt non-ozone depleting blowing agents including HFC's and HC's. Non-flammable products include HARP® 134a and HARP® 365mfc/227ea blends. The flammable hydrocarbon products iso-, n- and cyclo-pentane, and isobutane and HARP® 365mfc complete the range.
To compliment its extensive range of top quality refrigerants, Harp International is able to offer to all customers a complete package of lubricants for use in refrigeration and air conditioning applications. These highly refined, quality products are available in a variety of package sizes from 0.95 litre cans to 208 litre drums.
To help our customers meet the drive towards non-chlorofluorocarbon delivery systems, global formulations, higher levels of product performance and the rationalisation of supplier bases Harp International Limited offers a "basket" of propellants.
The revised F-Gas Regulation, (EU) No 517/2014 was published in the Official Journal on the 16th April 2014. This will repeal the original F-Gas Regulation (EC) 842/2006.
The revised Regulation will come into effect from the 1st January 2015 and shall apply to all Member States of the EU without exception.
Not all provisions of the Regulation will be effective from that date and many requirements will be phased in over the course of a decade or more.
The main features of the revised F-Gas Regulation:
The aim of the agreed Regulation is to reduce F-Gas emissions by two-thirds of today's levels by 2030 and to encourage the use of viable and more climate-friendly alternatives where they are readily available... read more »
