Title: Ammonia refrigerant in buildings: minimising the hazards

Ref Code: IP18/00
Authors: D J G Butler and D J Hall

Abstract1: Ammonia is being increasingly used as a refrigerant in air conditioning systems because of its low environmental impact and excellent refrigeration properties. However, ammonia is toxic which means that great care is needed in its use. This paper shows that the design of safe ammonia systems must also take into account dispersal mechanisms.
