The refrigerant R22 was developed in the last century to replace the highly toxic refrigerants which were used at that time such as ammonia and methyl bromide. After many years of research we now know that the refrigerant R22 has an impact on the environment as an Ozone depleting agent. Steps have been taken to stop the use of R22 as per the European protocol .
So if you are asking yourself what do I do if I have my plant running on R22 the solution is simple. You have two options:
End of Life Replacement – you may decide to go with this option for your non critical systems.
Planned Replacement - you may decide on this option if you plan to replace your system over a period of time since you have to plan around the disruption of your equipment being our of action.
