Terminal venting flash fires, no recovery equipment yet, having to move the equipment outdoors to work on it. Not to mention what it is going to do to a companies liability insurance. I have a feeling this will be around for only a few years and we will be on to something else. I hope they will be using it on small equipment because moving it outdoors is not always an option.
Luckily in europe its legal to vent hydrocarbon refrigerants .There are limits to the charges allowed in indoor cabinets 1kg in a basement,1.5kg on a shopfloor,2.5kg in a storeroom.thankfully the freezers i work on only have 100grams.Agree about the availability of recovery machines almost non existant,the only one ive seen was big and bulky.
