Operator training has become one of the most prevalent areas of deficiency in process safety management (PSM) programs for refrigeration systems, says two industrial refrigeration equipment makers in a new white paper. The combined effects of high turnover in the refrigeration industry, high complexity system designs and an increasing void of trained technicians have created compliance challenges among operators of large refrigeration systems.

Low charge ammonia refrigeration systems have created an opportunity to ensure higher safety performance and compliance with training requirements, says Evapco and Stellar.

First presented at the 2017 conference of the Refrigerating Engineers & Technicians Association (RETA), the white paper explains the benefits of low charge ammonia refrigeration systms for industrial applications. Such packaged systems provide the features, attributes and documentation that will satisfy the requirements and criteria for these PSM elements.
