ASHRAE STD 15 & 34
Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
This standard establishes safeguards for life, limb, health, and property and prescribes safety requirements.
This standard applies to
a. the design, construction, test, installation, operation, and inspection of mechanical and absorption refrigeration systems, including heat-pump systems used in stationary applications;
b. modifications, including replacement of parts or components if they are not identical in function and capacity; and
c. substitutions of refrigerants having a different designation.
This standard shall not apply to refrigeration systems using ammonia (R-717) as the refrigerant.
This standard specifies safe design, construction, installation, and operation of refrigeration systems.
Informative Note: See ANSI/IIAR 2 1 for systems using ammonia (R-717).
