Alfa Laval is hosting a free industry webinar on Tuesday, June 8, to help HVAC&R professionals upskill on the design requirements for low-GWP refrigerants – both natural and synthetic. The event has been organised exclusively for countries in the Asia Pacific region, and will look at the specific challenges in these markets.
“The shift to low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants is gaining momentum globally,” says Alfa Laval. “The combination of a dynamic regulatory environment and a generally warmer climate in the Asia Pacific region means refrigeration contractors and consultants need to understand and prepare for the changes ahead.”
The session will explore the design requirements for widely used refrigerants such as R744 (CO2), R290 (propane) and HFOs, to build systems that are energy efficient, durable and compliant, even under high pressure.
“With new types of refrigerants released almost every week, this online event is also an opportunity to prepare for future trends and hear from your peers during the live Q&A about how they are addressing the refrigerant challenge in their everyday work and delivery to customers,” says Alfa Laval.
The webinar will also cover:
- Legislative and environmental concerns driving the adoption of low-GWP refrigerants in the Asia Pacific region, including Australia and New Zealand as well as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam
- Design considerations for plate heat exchangers in low-GWP applications
- Technology innovation for high-pressure systems, subcooling and heat reclaim
- How to future-proof heat exchanger design in the face of constant change.
Presenters are Colin Ellis, Affil.AIRAH, Refrigeration Manager Alfa Laval Australia (pictured) and Pacharamon Buranasompob, Sales Director for Heat Exchanger Equipment, Alfa Laval South East Asia.
