While everyone is already using HC gas in everyday life, e.g. in the kitchen as cooking gas and in refrigerators, in vehicles as an environmentally friendly fuel replacing gasoline, as propellant gas in hygiene products such as deodorants and hairsprays, we do acknowledge that HC refrigerants must be used safely in all applications including air conditioners. With this handbook we want to go the extra mile to safety by providing sound and reliable information on precautions that can be taken to prevent any untoward accidents. It is targeted at an audience concerned with the introduction of HC refrigerants at all levels from national policies to equipment design and manufacturing, installation, maintenance, servicing and end-of-life disposal.
