Code of Practice to eliminate halocarbon emissions from refrigeration and air conditioning systems: chapter 5

Part 2 - Mobile Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Systems (Mobile Cooling Systems)

Mobile systems include air conditioning and refrigeration systems (mobile cooling systems) in:

The basic principles that apply to stationary cooling systems as described in this code of practice can also be applied to mobile cooling systems. This section covers aspects that are specific to mobile systems.

Mobile cooling systems have become more reliable and efficient in recent years; however, they are subjected to greater and more frequent vibration forces than stationary cooling systems. They normally operate in a more aggressive environment due to rain, dust, debris and road or marine salt. Therefore, these systems may be more prone to refrigerant leakage.

5.0 Design

The design of mobile cooling systems should:

The vehicle operator should:
