IIAR’s SOP Standard Open for Public Review
The first (1st) public review of draft standard BSR/IIAR 7-201x Developing Operating Procedures for Closed-Circuit Ammonia Refrigeration Systems, for periodic maintenance requirements, is now open. The public review will be conducted from November 10, 2017 through December 26th, 2017.
BSR/IIAR 7-201x, defines the minimum requirements for developing operating procedures applicable to closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems. It presupposes that the persons who use the document have a working knowledge of the functionality of an ammonia refrigeration system(s) and basic ammonia refrigeration practices and principles. This standard is intended for those who develop, define, or review operating procedures, or a combination thereof, for closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems. This standard shall apply only to stationary closed-circuit refrigeration systems utilizing ammonia as the refrigerant. It supplements existing general refrigeration standards issued by IIAR and other organizations such as ASHRAE, ASME, and ANSI. It is not intended to supplant existing safety codes (e.g., model mechanical or fire codes).
