The Eurovent Association became official partner association of Indonesia’s leading industry exhibition

The Refrigeration & HVAC Indonesia exhibition is the most promising industry event Indonesia, a fast-growing South-East Asian market. As an offspring of the parallel event International Indonesia Seafood and Meat exhibition, this event specifically attracts relevant audience from Indonesia’s cold chain industry. The exhibition takes place in Jakarta from 28 to 30 September 2017. In this article, our Team has compiled a market summary for members and why this country deserves a stronger attention by the European industry.

The white paper details a total of five uncertainties that can occur during the measurement process. In addition to errors in measuring instruments, it looks at both uncertainties in the reproducibility of tests in different laboratories and in the manufacture of compressors. Moreover, the document also highlights the uncertainties in performance prognosis as well as the difference between nominal and test conditions.

Gain insights into the role of Indoor Environment Quality and HVAC systems in modern, sustainable building

Debate.Comfort.Construction.Energy 2017 (DKBE) is going to be a unique event merging experience and knowledge of various experts from the building industry in the unique setting of Warsaw’s national stadium. The conference will address a wide range of topics including Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ), principles of the building mechanical system design, and the impact of user behaviour on overall building energy consumption. The Eurovent Association is supporting and contributing to this forward-thinking conference.

The American association’s final report assesses ’Benchmarking Risk by Whole Room Scale Leaks and Ignitions Testing of A2L Refrigerants’

The ongoing global effort to phase down the use of high-GWP potential refrigerants requires an effective, and evidence-based research on the on the A2L refrigerants which have been identified as potential replacement for refrigerants currently used in HVAC and refrigeration systems. In June 2017, AHRI has published its report ‘Benchmarking Risk by Whole Room Scale Leaks and Ignitions Testing of A2L Refrigerants’. Within this 365-page report, AHRI has assessed several A2L refrigerants. The report would be instrumental in updating the relevant national codes and safety standards so that appropriate, climate-friendly alternatives can be safely used in air conditioning and refrigeration equipment.

Next edition of Europe’s HVACR flagship event to take place in Seville, Spain

Madrid, 26 June 2017. During a dedicated meeting in Madrid, representatives of AEFYT (Spanish Association for Refrigeration Technology), AFEC (Spanish Association for Manufacturers of Air Conditioning Equipment) and the Eurovent Association have signed an agreement to jointly organise the 2018 Eurovent Summit. It was announced that the next edition of Europe’s major gathering for Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, and Food Cold Chain Technologies is going to take place in Seville, Spain, from 25 to 28 September.

The IOR will be hosting the inaugural IIR International Conference on the Application of HFO Refrigerants from 2 to 5 September 2018 in Birmingham. The three-day conference will provide a focus for global experience on the use of low flammable A2L classification refrigerants, which encompass the new generation of HFO refrigerants heralded as replacements for high-GWP HFC refrigerants. The event will cover essential information for designers, manufacturers, end users and installers about characteristics of low GWP refrigerants, system and component design, lubricants, flammability, legislation, codes of practice and standards.
