Whether commissioning, maintaining or repairing refrigeration systems, heat pumps or air conditioners, operators handling refrigerants are subject to various regulatory requirements, such as the F-gas Directive. Aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the sense of responsibility of all those involved, this requires them to obtain a certificate of competence, valid for 5 years. What's more, depending on the type of operation to be carried out, they must use specific tools that must be checked every year.
To comply with this requirement, Testo, a partner to refrigeration professionals, is making available its new testo R32 capacity attestation kit, comprising six essential tools for working to the highest standards, as well as calibration services for these measuring devices.
With the new testo R32 certification kit for all categories of use, operators can be sure of having the right measuring tools to meet their legal obligations and obtain certification for handling refrigerants. It includes :
- testo 550s connected electronic manifold with Bluetooth and 2-way bypass,
- a set of flexible hoses with R32 valve,
- a testo 316-3 refrigerant leak detector,
- a digital refrigerant scale with Bluetooth testo 560i,
- an alarm mini-thermometer,
- and an R32 recovery station.
Thanks to the testo Smart mobile application, which can be downloaded to a smartphone or tablet, professionals can view all results at a glance and get the most out of their measuring equipment.
