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.
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.
- Substance components (GC) E.g. R404A = % R143a/R125a/R134a
- Air and other non-condensables (GC)
- Water (KF)
- Acids (titrator)
- Oil (Goetz bulb)
- Solid particulates (Goetz bulb)
GC = Gaschromatograf
KF = Karl Ficher titrator
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 refrigerant, 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.
A through 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.
