Pfannenberg F-gas calculator

The F-gas calculator helps OEMs and industrial customers to recognise if there is an urgent need for action - manufacturer-independent and for all device classes.

  • New EU Regulation No. 517/2014 on fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases).
  • Transitional periods for the service end at the turn of the year, on 31 December 2019
  • Compliance with EU Regulation is the duty of the operator.

Benefits for system operators and machine builders.

The result output by the F-gas calculator helps system operators to comply with statutory and regulatory requirements, the "operator obligations". As well as meeting all necessary documentation requirements, the aim is to maximize machine availability for a reasonable outlay and to cut the lifecycle costs of the operation.

The F-gas calculator is also a very helpful tool for machine builders. The results obtained can be fed into expert and professional advice to end customers.

It allows OEMs as solution sellers to suggest a carefully chosen solution to their customers. It's a win-win situation: systems operators comply with statutory obligations, machine builders can secure profitable after-sales business with existing systems.

Converting an existing system is a plausible option which also pays off for the systems operator. By changing to another refrigerant, which often involves hardware updates, it is often possible to bring the CO2 equivalent value below the level for leak testing.

The operator can therefore save on the service budget for inspections every year.
