This webinar will discuss the recent Fire Protection Research Foundation report, "Evaluation of the Fire Hazard of ASHRAE Class A3 Refrigerants in Commercial Refrigeration Applications". The specific objectives of the study were to: (1) assess the flammability risk versus charge size; and (2) develop recommendations on how to prevent or mitigate the risks when using R-290 in commercial retail and kitchen applications. The study was needed to establish a technical basis for any changes to the current charge limits and to help determine whether A3 (hydrocarbon) refrigerants can replace non-flammable refrigerants in a broader range of refrigeration applications that require larger charges than currently allowed by standards. The full final report is available from the FPRF website.
Who will benefit: Researchers, Facility Managers, Enforcers, AHJs, Fire Protection Engineers, Material providers, Emergency managers, Incident commanders.
