2079 F-Gas Refrigeration Knowledge Part 1 (Unit 101)

Course Overview

City and Guilds 2079 F-Gas Regulations (Category I)

All engineers required to handle HFC refrigerants must now hold this new European F-Gas qualification

This 4½ day course is designed for a group of engineers who may be new to the refrigeration industry with little or no knowledge in refrigeration principles and practices but may ultimately be called upon to attempt service or repair of equipment in the event of breakdown. EU legislation now makes it necessary that all refrigeration/air-conditioning service or repair work is only performed by “certified persons”. This training programme covers all aspects of the under-pinning knowledge required for the candidate to attempt assessment to City & Guilds 2079 Unit 101 Knowledge in F Gas and ODS Regulations.

Course Content

  • Standard units of measurement used in refrigeration.
  • Basic theory of vapour compression cycle, key terms, use of pH diagram.
  • Function / processes of the four main components.
  • State/condition of refrigerant around the circuit.
  • Determine reasonable operating conditions (sat. conditions) for condensers/evaporators in various applications.
  • Features of zeotropic blends.
  • Importance of monitoring system performance for indications of operational efficiency and possible leakage.
  • Ozone Depletion and the Montreal Protocol.
  • HCFC refrigerants. Their ODP. Effects of chlorine on ozone depletion.
  • Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol.
  • Direct and Indirect Global Warming of common HFC & HC refrigerants.
  • Basic requirements of EC 842/2006 and other relevant regulations.
  • Information requirements of record books.
  • Operational function of various components and risks of refrigerant leakage associated with them.
  • Requirements for handling, storing, transportation and disposal of contaminated refrigerant and oil.
  • Hazards to personnel associated with refrigerant release.
  • Hazards associated with brazing.
