New MAKING SENSE Webinar Covers Seven Keys to Servicing CO2 Systems

When it comes to refrigerants, a change is in the air. The EPA’s pending SNAP ruling to delist R-404A and other commonly used refrigerants is yet another reminder of the uncertainty that permeates the refrigeration industry. But in this regulatory climate where refrigerants with high global warming potential (GWP) are being phased down, CO2 (R-744) is emerging as a viable natural alternative.


For food retailers seeking to circumvent ongoing regulatory compliance challenges, R-744 represents one of the few future-proof refrigeration options available today. With a GWP of one, virtually zero ozone depletion potential and the technology in place to support broader adoption, R-744 has a tremendous upside. But, its high pressure and unique refrigeration properties will mean a change in typical operating and maintenance procedures. As a result, service technicians will need to educate themselves and become familiar with R-744’s characteristics.

Our next MAKING SENSE webinar will address these considerations. Presented by Andre Patenaude, Emerson Climate Technologies’ director of CO2 business development, “Seven Keys to Servicing CO2 Systems” will take place on July 14 at 2 p.m. EDT. This informative session will explore the many operating implications of CO2-based refrigeration systems from a service technician’s perspective and help them prepare to effectively deal with the refrigerant’s unique properties. In this complimentary webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • Dealing with the high pressure of R-744
  • Understanding R-744’s critical and triple points
  • How to improve CO2 system efficiencies in warm ambient environments
  • Managing power outages
  • Dealing with the standstill pressures of R-744
  • Preparing the service technicians with the proper equipment (gauges, hoses, etc.)
  • R-744 cylinder storage, charging and maintenance best practices

To make sure your service team is prepared to handle CO2 in refrigeration, register now to join us July 14 from 2–3 p.m. EDT. We’ll help you MAKE SENSE of CO2 and allow you to take advantage of the industry’s most future-proof refrigerant alternative. Learn more and register by visiting our website at:
