8 Applications for Thermal Testing in Mil-Aero Applications 


Refrigeration Systems Regulation - New Enforcement, January 2017

The F-Gas law (EU 517/2014) establishes rules for any system containing fluorinated greenhouse gases. These include containment, use, recovery and destruction of gases; conditions on the placing specific products and equipment on the market; conditions on specific uses of these gases; and from Jan 1, 2017, equipment must be labeled with its quantity of global warming potential, which determines if your refrigeration system will need annual leak checking.
These have important implications for companies doing business in the 28 EU countries or, for that matter, any company with a vision of being environmentally conscious.

We talked about the new ThermoSpot® temperature characterization tool in the last newsletter. Now you can see it in action. Join us at the International Test Conference in Ft Worth, TX, Nov. 15-17, 2016. ThermoSpot is industry's next generation of bench top temperature forcing system where it does not rely on performance-degrading thermoelectric cooling.
