On Wednesday, June 22, Process Cooling will host a one- hour free webinar on “What Do the Changes to ANSI/IIAR 2 Mean for Your Plant?” If your plant uses ammonia for industrial refrigeration, this webinar will provide valuable insights that could help you.

The ANSI/IIAR 2-2014 Standard, released in late fall of 2015, is the latest version of the design safety standard of the ammonia refrigeration industry. As the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration notes, “ANSI/IIAR 2-2014 is the definitive design safety standard of the ammonia refrigeration industry.” ANSI/IIAR 2-2014 incorporates topics traditionally addressed in other codes and standards, notes IIAR, so that it can serve as a single, comprehensive standard covering safe design of closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems.

The latest version of the quintessential ammonia refrigeration standard contains key changes that affect every industrial refrigeration and cold storage facility. In plain terms, this means there are new specifications that your plant must meet.
During the one-hour webinar, learn how ANSI/IIAR 2-2014 affects:

  • Minimum ventilation rate.
  • Pipe labeling.
  • Ammonia detection and alarm levels.

These changes will affect the way ammonia refrigeration systems are designed and maintained. Will it affect you?

John Sherrill, a training/compliance engineer at Wagner-Meinert LLC, Tex Hildebrand Training Center, Fort Wayne, Ind., will present the webinar. He has more than 40 years’ experience in ammonia refrigeration and more than 25 years as a trainer/instructor. Wagner-Meinert LLC provides refrigeration, food process and mechanical contracting equipment, services and training.

The event is sponsored by Danfosss, Kolbi Pipe Marker and Polyguard Products. Each of our sponsors provides products for ammonia refrigeration and chose to support this webinar so that we could make it available to our readers for free.

These changes will affect the way ammonia refrigeration systems are designed and maintained. Is your plant adequately prepared for your next OSHA inspection?
