The specialist for refrigeration and air conditioning technology BITZER has revised its free refrigerant reference tool for smartphones: the BITZER Refrigerant Ruler.
The completely renewed BITZER Refrigerant Ruler app enables users to easily and quickly assess refrigerant data. BITZER previously upgraded the application, which was launched in 2010, in 2016 in terms of its look and feel. Designed specifically for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, it contains data on all common refrigerants, including key fluid properties, safety group information, global warming potential (GWP), ozone depletion potential (ODP) and information on choice of oil type for the compressor.
The tool provides an intuitive user interface for easy and accurate temperature-to-pressure conversion while allowing easy preselection and switching between different metric (SI) and imperial (IP) units.
The main functions include several parallel slide controls for setting pressure and temperature values, search filters and favourites, as well as the possibility to adjust all relevant parameters in the settings menu. In addition, supplementary information on refrigerants and links to relevant online documents are available.
The app contains information on more than 100 natural and synthetic refrigerants, which can also be preselected via filters. For comparison purposes and for practical use in the service and operation of older existing systems, BITZER also provides data on previously used refrigerants which may have been affected by usage restrictions.
