The 2002 assessment report, produced under the Montreal Protocol on ozone depleting substances, finds that technical progress has been made by the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industry to comply with requirements to phase out CFCs and in several applications, HCFCs as well. However, there is still a significant amount of installed refrigeration equipment still using CFCs and HCFCs, and so service demand remains high and is best minimised by preventive service, containment, retrofit, recovery and recycling.The equipment should be checked in order to detect leaks in time and thus to prevent loss of the entire charge. During maintenance and scrapping of the system, refrigerant should be isolated in the system or recovered. The technician mustanbsp;...
