It is important we work closely with our clients to ensure their air conditioning, refrigeration units and water chillers are 'Refrigerant Leak free'. This can be programmed through a six or 12 monthly PPM programme of F-Gas testing to ensure statutory and legislative compliance.
Secure refrigerant containment is core to the regulation, so regular F-Gas tests are necessary to both prevent leaks and repair any leakage as soon as possible. Leak prevention and detection is aided through monitoring according to a mandatory leak-checking schedule.
The key aspects of F-gas are:
- Secure refrigerant containment.
- Documented leak inspection regimes.
- Record keeping - Auditable refrigerant recovery.
- Skills training and the appropriate safe refrigerant handling certification of the service and Maintenance Company and its employees.
