AIR CONDITIONING or CLIMATE CONTROL

I - SAFETY

IMPORTANT

The following must be worn when handling refrigerant:

In the event of refrigerant fluid coming into contact with the eyes, rinse well with clean water continuously for 15 minutes. If possible, have an eye rinse unit available.

If refrigerant comes into contact with your eyes, consult a doctor immediately. Inform the doctor that the burns were caused by R134A refrigerant.

In the event of contact with other unprotected parts of the body (event though the safety advice has been observed), rinse well with clean water continuously for 15 minutes.

IMPORTANT

Work requiring the use of refrigerant must be carried out in a well-ventilated area.

The refrigerant must not be stored in a shaft, a pit, a hermetically sealed room, etc.

Refrigerants are colourless and odourless fluids.

Refrigerant is heavier than air. As a result there is a risk of asphyxia for those working close to the ground and less than 5 m away from the working area (pit, well, air vents, etc.).

Switch on gas extraction systems.

At temperatures above 100
