Over the past few years, there has been a dramatic rise in the volume of counterfeit and poor-quality refrigerants being sold globally. These products present a number of quality and safety challenges. They often contain high levels of impurities, failing to conform to DIN 8960, AHRI 700 or other quality standards. In addition, they are often supplied in low-quality cylinders that fail to meet local legislative requirements, e.g. CE marking. In some cases, the cylinder contents do not even correspond to the refrigerant ordered and supposedly delivered.
Using a poor quality refrigerant gas can lead to safety, financial and environmental risk including:
safety risks to service personnel and operators
refrigeration system inefficiencies and downtime
