  • Dependable detection of refrigerant gases with Crowcon’s F-Gas Detector

    Fluorinated (Freon) gases, which include hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), hydro-chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), are a family of man-made chemicals containing fluorine. These ’F-gases’ are extremely powerful greenhouse gases that trap heat in the atmosphere, contributing to global warming – most are between 1,000 and 20,000 times ...

  • a1-cbiss Leak Detection Systems in Compliance with F-Gas Regulation

    Under new F-Gas proposals, a calculation of CO2 equivalent emissions will determine what type of gas leak detection is required. Sites using refrigeration now have to factor in the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of HFC’s compared to relative CO2 emissions. Sites that were before not under F-Gas regulations (had a charge of under 300kgs) are now required to have a fixed refrigerant gas leak ...
