Leaking Refrigerants: Best Practices to Comply with Changing Leak Detection and Repair Requirement - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Refrigerant leak detection and repair (LDAR) rules have changed, are you comfortable with your knowledge of the new requirements to successfully implement a compliant LDAR program and avoid the risk of costly fines? Master the new requirements before the fast approaching compliance date.


 

The EPA updated the requirements for managing refrigerants several years ago, and the January 1, 2019, compliance date for the new leak detection and repair (LDAR) provisions is finally approaching. Are you comfortable with your knowledge of the new requirements to assess whether your refrigeration systems are subject to the new rule, and to successfully implement a compliant LDAR program to reduce refrigerant losses? Failure to understand and comply with the new standards may result in enforcement actions and fines under the new rule. In addition, limiting refrigerant leaks is good for business and reduces operational costs.

Because the revised regulations make significant changes to what is required for compliant refrigerant management, all organizations need to take a careful look at the new requirements, consider applicability, and develop a strategy to comply with the leak detection and repair requirements. Each organization will need to consider key elements, including what materials they can use and whether those materials will be phased out, equipment replacement or modification, strategies for training and certifying technicians, and more comprehensive monitoring, leak detection, recordkeeping and reporting. Refrigerant management plans will likely require significant modifications to assure compliance.

Use this on-demand webinar, with Greg Haunschild, a seasoned environmental professional who specializes in refrigerant management strategy for the air-conditioning and refrigeration sectors, will explain the basics of the changes, highlight areas of the rule to which facilities should pay special attention, and outline some best practices for complying with the new refrigerant requirements.

You will learn how to:

  • Assess the leak rate and determine whether requirements have been triggered for Industrial Process Refrigeration (IPR), Commercial Refrigeration, Comfort Cooling or other appliances
  • Act when an appliance is leaking refrigerant above the applicable trigger rate
  • Apply for additional time for conducting repairs and when such extensions are allowed
  • Retrofit or retire appliances and how to prepare a retrofit or retirement plan
  • Obtain relief from the retrofit or repair requirements
  • Understand the considerations and requirements associated with mothballing equipment subject to the leak repair requirements
