The Zamil Central Air Conditioners team attended the 2016 International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo), held January 25 to 27 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, and the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI’s) Low-Global Warming Potential Alternative Refrigerants Evaluation Program (Low-GWP AREP) Phase II Conference, held January 20 to 26, 2016, at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Florida, USA.
The 2016 AHR Expo welcomed more than 60,900 registered attendees as well as tens of thousands of contractors and engineers, OEMs, distributors, and plant managers from all facets of the global HVACR industry to the world’s largest HVACR marketplace.
The AHRI Low-GWP AREP Conference included discussion on major research issues in the identification and evaluation of promising alternative refrigerants for major product categories in response to environmental concerns raised by the use of high-GWP refrigerants. The objective of the Low-GWP AREP program is to identify potential replacements for high-GWP refrigerants by evaluating their performance in a consistent and standardized manner.
Phase II of the program expanded the study to include new refrigerants and testing in high-ambient conditions. Mohammed Khawaldeh, director of Unitary and Applied Product Units at Zamil, was one of the resource speakers at the AHRI Low-GWP AREP II Conference. His talk focused on the softoptimization test of R-410A Alternative Refrigerant R-32 in a six-ton rooftop packaged air conditioner.
