The 19th May Cool Talk

Join us at a breakfast morning for service engineers and technicians where there will be practical advice from experts on new refrigerants. The event will give you a chance to ask questions about this topical issue, introduce the IOR and help you to meet others working in the area.

There will be three short talks giving information on what you need to know about using some of the new low GWP refrigerants starting to come into the market. It will cover questions like – What is different about HFO refrigerants? What does wide glide refrigerant mean in practice?   How can you prevent compressor failure?  You can also raise other topics that you might like us to cover in future Breakfast events.
