Refrigerant Testing

 

The PGES laboratory was the first in the Middle East to be able to test refrigerants to full AHRI standards. It is also the most well equipped refrigerant laboratory in the Middle East with two separate GC’s and also a GC/MS with and extended headspace. And a moisture/temperature controlled room specifically for the Karl Fischer moisture tests.

All our laboratory staff did their initial training with our partners in America in their AHRI certified laboratory and has done additional training from the UK to work specifically with the mass spectrometry unit.

To meet current ASTM standards, which are the highest for Halon 1301. PGES perform the following test.

1.

Purity

2.

Halogen/chloride

3.

Acidity

4.

Residue

5.

Suspended matter

6.

Moisture

7.

Non condensable fixed gas

8.

Non condensable fixed gas

 

Below is a table of the tests we run for refrigerants and the parameters for the standards.
