IIAR Bulletins

IIAR Bulletins are informative documents written as a collection of good ideas through the work of various IIAR Committees.  Not to be confused with IIAR Standards, IIAR Bulletins exist to provide guidance where no other standard or guideline exists.
You can access a list of discontinued IIAR Bulletins here.


 

Bulletin 108–Guidelines for: Water Contamination in Ammonia Refrigeration Systems (Date: 1986)

Water contamination in ammonia refrigeration systems has always been a problem. Owners typically know they have water in a system, but may not be familiar with how it got there. This bulletin offers insights on where the water can come from and how to minimize continued infiltration. It provides an analytical approach to quantifying water concentrations, and recommends apparatus to remove the water.

Bulletin 109–Guidelines for: IIAR Minimum Safety Criteria for a Safe Ammonia Refrigeration System (Date: 1997)

This bulletin embraces an IIAR goal of ensuring that ammonia refrigeration systems are engineered, constructed and operated in a safe manner. This bulletin provides detailed lists of items to consider when designing, inspecting, or operating a system. Housekeeping, recordkeeping, code considerations and personnel safety equipment are some of the safety issues addressed. The bulletin also provides inspection checklist forms for compressors, condensers, evaporators, vessels and heat exchangers to check system installation against recognized industry safety requirements.

Bulletin 116–Guidelines for: Avoiding Component Failure in Industrial Refrigeration Systems Caused by Abnormal Pressure or Shock (Date: 1992)

This bulletin identifies three significant factors that can lead to ammonia refrigeration system damage and personnel injury: trapped liquid, sudden liquid deceleration, and vapor propelled liquid. This bulletin explains the most likely causes for each of these problems and provides design, operation and servicing tips that can minimize the chances of them occurring. It also offers numerous suggestions on making hot gas defrost operations safer and more effective.

Ammonia Refrigeration Training Guideline

Everyone in the industry agrees that we need more, better trained operators. IIAR has teamed up with RETA and IARW to produce this Training Guideline in order to make training more comprehensive and consistent. Utilizing this guideline when producing your own training program will increase your success and you will soon reap the benefits of having better trained operators, namely, increased safety, better communication, and smoother operations. All of your employees will benefit from these improvements.
