Bacharach has provided a checklist to help operators ensure that refrigerators comply with new EPA Guidelines.
The checklist summarises the regulation changes that were brought into effect in January of this year, and outlines the key requirements for equipment owners within the food retail sector.
The EPA Refrigerant Recycling and Emissions Reduction Program was updated in a bid to ensure more sustainable use of refrigeration.
The company said: “Compliance with evolving legislation can be demanding while also ensuring product quality and the safety of colleagues and customers, reducing operating expense and improving margins, while striving for 24/7/365 equipment uptime.
“That’s why we’ve summarized the 2019 regulation changes in a handy checklist for you- so you can focus on your operation while we focus on helping you reduce your refrigerant emissions.”
The checklist provides guidance and support for seven items that are defined in the EPA program: robust record keeping; leak rate calculations; equipment leak thresholds; leak repair time frames; leak inspection requirements; retrofit and retirement timescales; chronically leaking appliance reporting.
The checklist can be downloaded by completing a form on the Bacharach website.
Bacharach is a manufacturer of refrigerant gas and combustion analysis, founded in Pittsburgh in 1909.
