SOLUTION FOR REDUCING AND MONITORING REFRIGERANT GASES

Monitoring refrigerant gas in an installation is relevant in a wide range of aspects; energy efficiency, care for the installation, business profitability and productivity, cost reduction, personal safety and care for the environment.

Our mission is to cover all these needs in the same solution.

WHY?

Increasing the profitability and competitiveness of a business is becoming more and more essential, and highlights the importance in the commercial and industrial refrigeration sectors where margins are so low.

Profitability and competitiveness not only come down to minimizing costs, but also through know-how and the creation of a brand image.

Gas leak monitoring helps reduce them by up to 85% in your installation.

The power consumption of a refrigeration installation is very high, and an installation operating at 80% of its nominal load increases its power consumption by 15% in addition to increasing the thermal and mechanical stress on the components, reducing the operational life of the installation .

Gas leaks are inevitable in a refrigeration installation, but they can be prevented and corrected as quickly as possible.

The continuous increase in the cost of refrigerant gas means an increasingly narrow profit margin in the food sector.

For an organization that operates with a 2% margin, saving € 20,000 in refrigerant charging is equivalent to generating € 1,000,000 in revenue.

Compliance with regulations and safety and environmental standards

  • F-GAS
  • EN 378 :2016
  • ASHRAE15
  • EPA 608

Minimization of business interruptions due to service outages

Gas losses in the installation mean a great decrease in the performance of the operation and ultimately a halt in services to restore the nominal load of refrigerant gas.

HOW?

Cutting-edge solutions to reduce refrigerant gas losses in order to maximize profitability for your business, high performance together with a reduction in electricity consumption, guarantee the total safety of individuals and avoid the emission of greenhouse gases.

  • Provide rapid deployment gas leakage monitoring solutions both in new construction and installed bases, without the need to interrupt your operations.
  • Improve the operation by keeping gas within the installation, reducing energy consumption, costs and increasing the profitability and performance of the installation.
  • Connected solutions that monitor your operations and offer you high-level KPIs.

CASE STUDY

AKOGAS NDIR

PERSONAL SAFETY, REGULATORY COMPLIANCE AND EARLY LEAK DETECTION

Infra-red gas leak monitor.

Specific, and extremely selective, sensors for each type of gas, which avoids false alarms due to other gases, solvents or cleaning products, ethylene emission from fruit or dough fermentation gasses, with great precision and a deviation of less than 5% in the detection of gas leaks.

The infra-red technology gas monitors are especially designed for detecting ambient gases, at concentrations as low as 1 PPM, and thus help you to drastically reduce the operating costs of your facility. They can be installed within any of the facility’s zones.

 

AKOGAS-ako-monitor-fugas-gas-infrarojo

Three detection levels, adjustable from 1 ppm to 2000 ppm.

Equipped with the SetHold mode which prevents false alarms during the refrigerant charging process.

Possibility of connection to AKONET.Cloud via Modbus or direct NB-IoT connectivity.

Intuitive user interface with acoustic and visual alarm.

Degree of Protection IP68.

It shows what time of day the leaks are most active, and therefore easier to locate.

No false alarms.

Autonomous operation or connected to an alarm station (mandatory installation in compressor rooms).

MONITORING

Monitored using AKONET.Cloud, the environment gas concentration log and the existing gas leak can be consulted at any time, together with some highly relevant indicators to know WHEN, WHERE and HOW MUCH gas is leaking, facilitating early repair and efficient maintenance.

Stay abreast of problems by receiving notifications about alarms, carry out efficient preventive maintenance thanks to the data log, indicators and reports, and minimize maintenance costs for your installation.

KPI’s

1. Type of gas.

2. Gas concentration in the environment.

3. ICF: Gas charge that is being lost in the installation as a result of this leak.

4. Leakage speed.

5. IPF – Potential leakage index: Estimate of the percentage of gas that would be lost over a year.

6. TGCI – Time Gas Concentration Index: Time intervals when the most gas leaks occur.

7. T eq CO2: Estimation of the equivalent tons of CO2 that would be emitted in a year.

HEALTH AND SAFETY AND REGULATORY COMPLIANCE

Semiconductor gas leak detector to ensure the integrity individuals within the installation and comply with the requirements of current regulations.

These detectors are designed to prevent possible incidents derived from a gas leak that may cause a risk to the people who operate the installations and thus avoid a negative impact on the business.

Two configurable detection levels.

Equipped with SetHold mode that prevents false alarms during the refrigerant charging process and cleaning.

Possibility of connection to AKONET.Cloud via Modbus.

Autonomous operation or connected to an alarm station (mandatory installation in compressor rooms).

IP68 protection rating.

Intuitive user interface with acoustic and visual alarm.
