Improve energy efficiency and lower maintenance costs through Refrigerant Testing and Analysis for HVACR Equipment

What is HVACR Refrigerant Testing?

HVACR refrigerant testing is a process used to evaluate the condition and purity of refrigerants used in HVACR systems. The purpose of refrigerant testing is to ensure that the refrigerant is free of contaminants, such as moisture, acid, and particulate matter, which can damage HVACR equipment and compromise the system's performance.

Regular refrigerant testing is essential to ensure the safe and efficient operation of HVACR systems. Contaminated or degraded refrigerants can lead to system failures, reduced performance, and increased energy consumption. Testing can also help identify leaks in the system, which can be a source of refrigerant loss and environmental damage.

Intertek's HVACR Refrigerant Testing and Analysis Solutions

Reduce equipment downtime and improve on system energy efficiency by identifying contaminants before they lead to system failure. Intertek offers 24-hour and rush turnaround service on refrigerant analysis, helping you to lower your maintenance costs and increase the lifetime of your systems.

We can help identify contaminants, and determine the purity of recovered, recycled and reclaimed refrigerant before they lead to a host of problems including high head pressures, acid formation, capillary restrictions, and oil migration and bearing failure. 

Our refrigerant testing services meet all analytical provisions mandated in Section 608 of the Clean Air Act. Our laboratory tests to the current version of the ARI-700 standard, the Industry Recycling Guideline (IRG-2) as well as several military and client specifications. We can also get you up-to-speed on UL 1995 / CSA C 22.2 No.236 implications for refrigerants.

Intertek is accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) as meeting the stringent requirements of ISO/IEC Guide 25, General Requirements for the Competence of Calibration and Testing. This standard far exceeds the requirements of ISO 9002.
