Refrigerant quality control

Quality Control

Laboratory

Eco Scandic Oy has established first thorough laboratory for analyzing refrigerants in Nordic countries. Our lab produces quality certificates in accordance with the AHRI-700 and ISO 11650-1999 standards.

Contaminations

It should be observed that a contaminated refrigerant increases the cooling appliance energy consumption as well as shortens the cooling devices lifetime, which in turn increases the maintenance costs for the device owner.

Infrared speed-analysis (IR)

A fast and only indicative refrigerant analysis that detects refrigerant components. If the components cannot be determined it is likely that the substance contains multiple refrigerants, thus making the refrigerant non-reclaimable and is treated as waste. The speed-analysis takes 2 minutes and is included in our refrigerant reclamation service.

Gaschromatograf (GC)

A thorough analysis that determines all the gas phase components to an accuracy of 0,1 %. By conducting a GC-analysis we can be certain of that the refrigerant can be reclaimed even though the IR-analysis indicated otherwise. However, the GC-analysis cannot single handedly determine the quality of the refrigerant, a KF for water measurement and Goetz bulb for oil and residue is required as well.
