When must my plant be checked for leaks?
Inspection intervals in accordance with EU Regulation 517/2014
Cooling units work with a refrigerant circuit. This circuit contains a refrigerant that is designated as a greenhouse gas and is not permitted to escape into the environment. Depending on the plant/unit type, a leakage tightness test should therefore be carried out at 3 – 12 monthly intervals.
The following Leakage tightness test date estimator will help you find the right interval for your plant/unit. You will find all the necessary information on the type label of your plant/unit or in your documents. If there is no information to that effect on the type label, the plant/unit should not be considered to be hermetically sealed.
The EU Regulation stipulates that leakage tightness tests and maintenance work carried out on the plant should be documented. We have made a plant log book so that you can meet your documentation obligation.
