Information on servicing

  1. Checks to the area: Prior to beginning work on systems containing fl ammable refrigerants, safety checks are necessary to ensure that the risk of ignition is minimized. For repair to the refrigerating system, the following precautions shall be complied with prior to conducting work on the system.
  2. Work procedure: Work shall be undertaken under a controlled procedure so as to minimize the risk of a fl ammable gas or vapour being present while the work is being performed.
  3. General work area: All maintenance staff and others working in the local area shall be instructed on the nature of work being carried out. Work in confi ned spaces shall be avoided. The area around the work space shall be sectioned off. Ensure that the conditions within the work area have been made safe by removing all fl ammable material.
  4. Checking for the presence of refrigerant: The area shall be checked with an appropriate refrigerant detector prior to and during work to ensure the technician is aware of potentially fl ammable atmospheres. Ensure that the leak detection equipment being used is suitable for use with fl ammable refrigerants, i.e. non-sparking, adequately sealed and intrinsically safe.
  5. Presence of fire extinguisher: If any hot work is to be conducted on the refrigeration equipment or any associated parts, appropriate fi re extinguishing equipment shall be available to hand. Have a dry powder or C02 fi re extinguisher adjacent to the work area.
  6. No ignition sources: No person carrying out work in relation to a refrigeration system which involves exposing any pipe work that contains or has contained fl ammable refrigerant shall use any sources of ignition in such a manner that it may lead to risk of fi re or explosion. All possible ignition sources including cigarette smoking, should be kept suffi ciently far away from the site of installation, repairing, removing and disposal during which fl ammable refrigerant can possibly be released to the surrounding space. Prior to work taking place, the area around the equipment is to be surveyed to make sure there are no fl ammable hazards or ignition risks. No smoking signs shall be displayed.
  7. Ventilated area: Ensure that the area is in the open or that it is adequately ventilated before breaking into the system or conducting any hot work. A degree of ventilation shall continue during the period that the work is carried out. The ventilation should safely disperse any released refrigerant and preferable expel it externally into the atmosphere.
  8. Checks to the refrigeration equipment: Where electrical components are being changed, they shall be fi t for the purpose and to the correct specifi cation. At all times the manufacturer’s maintenance and service guidelines shall be followed. If in doubt consult the manufacturer’s technical department for assistance.

The following checks shall be applied to installations using flammable refrigerants:

  • The charge size is in accordance with the room size within which the refrigerant containing parts are installed.
  • The ventilation machinery and outlets are operating adequately and are not obstructed.
  • If an indirect refrigerating circuit is being used, the secondary circuit shall be checked for the presence of refrigerant.
  • Marking to the equipment continues to be visible and legible. Markings and signs that become illegible must be corrected.
  • Refrigeration pipe or components are installed in a position where they are unlikely to be exposed to any substance which may corrode refrigerant containing components, unless the components are constructed of materials which are inherently resistant to being corroded or are suitable protected against being corroded.

Initial safety checks shall include:

  • That capacitors are discharged. This shall be done in a safe manner to avoid possibility of sparking.
  • That no live electrical components and wiring are exposed while charging, recovering or purging the system.
  • That there is continuity of earth bonding.

Repairs to sealed components

  1. During repairs to sealed components, all electrical supplies shall be disconnected from the equipment being worked upon prior to any removal of sealed covers, etc. If it is absolutely necessary to have an electrical supply to equipment during servicing then a permanently operating form of leak detection shall be located at the most critical point to warn of a potentially hazardous situation.
  2. To ensure that by working on electrical components the casing is not altered in such a way that the level of protection is affected, particular attention shall be paid to the following:
    1. Damage to cables, excessive number of connections, terminals not made to original specifi cation, damage to seals, incorrect fitting of glands, etc.
    2. Ensure the apparatus is mounted securely.
    3. Ensure that seals or sealing materials have not degraded such that they no longer serve the purpose of preventing the ingress of flammable atmospheres. Replacement parts shall be in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.

Note: The use of silicon sealant may inhibit the effectiveness of some types of leak detection equipment. Intrinsically safe components do not have to be isolated prior to working on them.

Repair to intrinsically safe components
Do not apply any permanent inductive or capacitance loads to the circuit without ensuring that this will not exceed the permissible voltage and current permitted for the equipment in use. Intrinsically safe components are the only types that can be worked on while live in the presence of a flammable atmosphere. The test apparatus shall be at the correct rating. Replace components only with parts specifi ed by the manufacturer. Other parts may result in the ignition of refrigerant in the atmosphere from a leak.

Check that cabling will not be subject to wear, corrosion, excessive pressure, vibration, sharp edges or any other adverse environmental effects. The check shall also take into account the effects of aging or continual vibration from sources such as compressors or fans.

Detection of flammable refrigerants
Under no circumstances shall potential sources of ignition be used in the searching for or detection of refrigerant leaks. A halide torch or any other detector using a naked flame shall not be used.

Leak detection methods
The following leak detection methods are deemed acceptable for systems containing fl ammable refrigerants:

  • Electronic leak detectors shall be used to detect flammable refrigerants but the sensitivity may not be adequate or may need recalibration. Detection equipment shall be calibrated in a refrigerant-free area. Ensure that the detector is not a potential source of ignition and is suitable for the refrigerant used.
  • Leak detection equipment shall be set at a percentage of the LFL of the refrigerant and shall be calibrated to the refrigerant employed and the appropriate percentage of gas (25% maximum) is confi rmed.
  • Leak detection fl uids are suitable for use with most refrigerants but the use of detergents containing chlorine shall be avoided as the chlorine may react with the refrigerant and corrode the copper or pipe-work.
  • If a leak is suspected, all naked fl ames shall be removed or extinguished.
  • If a leakage of refrigerant is found which requires brazing, all of the refrigerant shall be recovered from the system or isolated by means of shut off valves in a part of the system remote from the leak. Oxygen free nitrogen (OFN) shall then be purged through the system both before and during the brazing process.

Removal and evacuation
When breaking into the refrigerant circuit to make repairs or for any other purpose conventional procedures shall be used. However, it is important that the best practice is followed since fl ammability is a consideration. The following procedures shall be adhered to:

  • Remove refrigerant.
  • Purge the circuit with inert gas.
  • Evacuate.
  • Purge again with inert gas.
  • Open the circuit by cutting or brazing.
  • The refrigerant charge shall be recovered into the correct recovery cylinders. The system shall be
    flushed with OFN to render the unit safe. This process may need to be repeated several times. Compressed air or oxygen shall not be used for this task.
  • Flushing shall be achieved by breaking the vacuum in the system with OFN and continuing to fi ll until the working pressure is achieved, then venting to atmosphere and fi nally pulling down to a vacuum. This process shall be repeated until no refrigerant is within the system. When the fi nal OFN charge is used, the system shall be vented down to atmospheric pressure to enable work to take place. This operation is absolutely vital is brazing operations on the pipe-work are to take place.
  • Ensure that the outlet for the vacuum pump is not close to any ignition sources and there is ventilation available.

Charging procedures
In addition to conventional charging procedures, the following requirements shall be followed:

  • Ensure that contamination of different refrigerants does not occur when using charging equipment. Hoses or lines shall be as short as possible to minimize the amount of refrigerant contained in them.
  • Cylinders shall be kept upright.
  • Ensure that the refrigeration system is earthed prior to charging the system with refrigerant.
  •  Label the system when charging is complete, if not already labeled.
  • Extreme care shall be taken not to overfi ll the refrigeration system.
  • Prior to recharging the system it shall be pressure tested with OFN. The system shall be leak tested on completion of charging but prior to commissioning. A follow up leak test shall be carried out prior to leaving the site.

Before carrying out this procedure, it is essential that the technician is completely familiar with the equipment in all its detail. It is recommended good practice that all refrigerants are recovered safely. Prior to the task being carried out, an oil and refrigerant sample shall be taken in case analysis is required prior to re-use of reclaimed refrigerant. It is essential that electrical power is available before the task is commenced.

  1. Become familiar with the equipment and its operation.
  2. Isolate system electrically.
  3. Before attempting the procedure ensure that:
    1. Mechanical handling equipment is available if required for handling refrigerant cylinders.
    2. All personal protective equipment is available and being used correctly.
    3. The recovery process is supervised at all times by a competent person.
    4. Recovery equipment and cylinders conform to the appropriate standards.
  4. Pump down refrigerant system, if possible.
  5. If a vacuum is not possible, make a manifold so that refrigerant can be removed from various parts of the system.
  6. Make sure that cylinder is situated on the scales before recovery takes place.
  7. Start the recovery machine and operate in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  8. Do not overfi ll cylinders. No more than 80% volume liquid charge.
  9. Do not exceed the maximum working pressure of the cylinder, even temporarily.
  10. When the cylinders have been fi lled correctly and the process is completed, make sure that the cylinders and the equipment are removed from the site promptly and all isolation valves on the equipment are closed off.
  11. Recovered refrigerant shall not be charged into another refrigeration system unless it has been cleaned and checked.

Equipment shall be labeled stating that it has been decommissioned and emptied of refrigerant. The label shall be dated and signed. Ensure that there are labels on the equipment stating the equipment contains flammable refrigerant.

When removing refrigerant from a system, either for servicing or decommissioning, it is recommended good practice that all refrigerants are removed safely. When transferring refrigerant into cylinders, ensure that only appropriate refrigerant recovers cylinders are employed. Ensure that the correct number of cylinders for holding the total system charge are available. All cylinders to be used are designed for the recovered refrigerant and labeled for that refrigerant, i.e. special cylinders for the recovery of refrigerant. Cylinders shall be complete with pressure relief valve and associated shut-off valves in good working order. Empty recovery cylinders are evacuated and, if possible, cooled before recovery occurs. The recovery equipment shall be in good working order with a set of instructions concerning the equipment that is at hand and shall be suitable for the recovery of flammable refrigerants. In addition, a set of calibrated weighing scales shall be available and in good working order. Hoses shall be complete with leak-free disconnect couplings and in good condition. Before using the recovery machine, check that is it in satisfactory working order, has been properly maintained and that any associated electrical components are sealed to prevent ignition in the event of a refrigerant leak. Consult the manufacturer if in doubt. The recovered refrigerant shall be returned to the refrigerant supplier in the correct recovery cylinder and the relevant waste transfer note shall be arranged. Do not mix refrigerants in recovery units and especially not in cylinders. If compressors or compressor oils are to be removed, ensure that they have been evacuated to an acceptable level to make certain that flammable refrigerant does not remain within the lubricant. The evacuation process shall be carried out prior to returning the compressor to the suppliers. Only electric heating to the compressor body shall be employed to accelerate this process. When oil is drained form a system, it shall be carried out safely.
