Characteristics of Refrigerants

Form #: 620-10
This chapter covers a listing of dates and events that illustrate the development of the industry and the variety of refrigerants used. Many other gases were studied and some, such as the hydrocarbon group, have found limited use.

Moving to Alternative Refrigerants: Update

Form #: 620-102
To supplement previously published case histories, EPA presents six more case histories that focus on small supermarket and restaurant chains, and their experiences with equipment and refrigerant retrofits and replacements and the use of mitigating refrigerants.

Refrigerant 410A

Form #: 620-108
This chapter describes typical applications, recycling/recovery procedures and equipment, and precautions applicable to this new refrigerant product.

Mixed Refrigerants

Form #: 620-11
This chapter’s topic is “Should mixed refrigerants be used at all?” In general it would seem less complicated and more desirable to use a single refrigerant whenever one with suitable properties is available. However, in applications where the performance of single refrigerants may leave room for improvement, mixtures can be effectively used.

Temperature-Pressure Value of Common Refrigerants at Saturation

Form #: 620-111
This chapter contains information regarding the determination of commercial refrigeration head pressure for air-cooled condensers, evaporative condensers, and water-cooled condensers with the chart covering Temperature–Pressure Values of Common Refrigerants at Saturation.

Understanding Refrigerant Tables

Form #: 620-113
This chapter will review the older refrigerant (R-22) first, and then refer to one of the newer replacement refrigerants (R-410A).

Plotting the A/C Cycle on a Pressure-Enthalpy (Mollier) Diagram

Form #: 620-114
This chapter covers a discussion of how physical characteristic curves, or pressure-enthalpy diagrams, can be developed for stable refrigerants.

Using the PT Chart as a Service Tool

Form #: 620-115
The purpose of this chapter is not only to explain the pressure-temperature relationship, but also to illustrate how a P-T chart can be used to thoroughly analyze a refrigeration or air conditioning system

Working with Flammable Refrigerant Systems

Form #: 620-116
This chapter contains precautions and procedures for servicing flammable and nonflammable refrigerant systems.

What Technicians Need to Know about Phasing Out HCFC Refrigerants

Form #: 620-117
The information contained in this chapter will help you better adapt to changing industry practices and provide consumers with appropriate service and information. This chapter also answers some of the most frequently asked questions about the phasing out of HCFC Refrigerants (ex.: What alternatives to R22 are acceptable and available? Is EPA certification required to purchase R-410A or to service R-410A systems?)

RSES is the leading education, training and certification preparation organization for HVACR professionals. RSES publishes various comprehensive industry training and reference materials in addition to delivering superior educational programs designed to benefit HVACR professionals at every stage of their careers through instructor-led training courses, online training for HVAC, educational seminars, interactive CD and DVD products, industry-related reference manuals, and helpful technical content through Service Application Manual chapters, the RSES Journal, the RSES Journal archives and feature articles, as well as web-exclusive features.

Beginning with basic theory and extending to complex troubleshooting, training courses covering refrigeration and air conditioning, heating, electricity, controls, heat pumps and safety may be conducted in a classroom environment or though self study. RSES publications may be purchased by schools, contractors, manufacturers or any other industry group wanting to conduct comprehensive training programs. Seminars covering air conditioning troubleshooting, electrical troubleshooting, compressor training, condenser training, refrigerant piping practices, DDC controls, and more are held in various cities across North America.

Select training programs offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and NATE Continuing Education Hours (CEHs).

In addition, RSES offers industry certification preparation materials for refrigerant handling (EPA Section 608), R-410A and North American Technician Excellence (NATE) examinations.

RSES’ monthly magazine, RSES Journal, serves HVAC contractors, service technicians, students, operations/maintenance managers, engineers and technicians who work in the residential, light commercial, commercial and institutional markets on air conditioning, warm-air heating, refrigeration, ventilation, electrical, ice machines, chillers, hydronic heating, piping, refrigeration control and energy management, building automation, indoor air quality and duct cleaning, and sheet metal fabrication equipment and/or systems.
