How to Ensure Ammonia Safety in Your Chilling System
The use of ammonia for industrial refrigeration is preferred for both performance and environmental reasons, yet precautions must be taken to ensure optimum ammonia safety and that dangers are minimized in cases of accidents, leaks, or spills.
To ensure that workers are kept safe, at minimum, these three steps should be followed for ammonia emergency preparedness:
1) Ensure that you have the minimal safety equipment assembled and easily accessible in an identifiable location
2) Have ammonia safety support tools on hand to aid in use of safety equipment when necessary
3) Keep employees trained and up to date on the proper emergency preparedness procedures.
