Natural refrigerants impact component design and selection
Refrigeration/cooling system manufacturers are replacing the old classes of chemical refrigerants that emit potent greenhouse gases, but it can be a challenge to determine its impact on component design and selection.
To address these concerns, and to also ensure that switches can withstand flammable refrigerant applications, pressure switches specially designed for HCs can be submitted for rigorous testing by external agencies. It is clear that natural refrigerants are important to the future landscape of industrial and manufacturing plants. As OEMs research their choices, component manufacturers must meet the design challenges posed by these non-synthetic refrigerants in order to optimize safety and efficiency.
