Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) has taken action to increase the HVACR industry’s understanding and compliance with the R-22 refrigerant phaseout, effective Jan. 1, 2010.

In August, RSES released eight technical bulletins and feature articles on the R-22 phaseout, originally available only to RSES members. RSES has deveoped an R-410A Industry Awareness web page — rses.org/410a — where RSES service application manual (SAM) technical bulletins and RSES Journal feature articles on the topic may be viewed.

Titles currently available include:

  • Refrigerant R-410A
