The hazards of Freon

User:JXCTUpload time:Dec 13 2021

Freon is the prime culprit of ozone layer destruction. It was synthesized in the 1920s. It is chemically stable, non-flammable and toxic. It is used as a refrigerant, foaming agent and cleaning agent, and is widely used in household appliances, foam plastics, Household chemicals, automobiles, fire-fighting equipment and other fields. Presumably everyone is familiar with air-conditioning refrigerants. In summer, what is the reason why the air-conditioning suddenly stops cooling? It is guessed that it is mostly caused by the lack of air-conditioning and lack of fluorine. Therefore, it is more important to add Freon in a timely and appropriate amount. How do you know that there is too much? This requires a portable instrument to detect-a portable Freon sensor

The hazards of Freon

Everyone’s understanding of Freon may be limited to the use of Freon in air conditioning and refrigeration. In fact, Freon can be divided into R12, R22, R134a, R407c, etc., among which R22 is damaging to the earth’s ozone, and most countries in the world have already banned it. . In addition, the concentration of Freon also determines its impact on the human body, and when it reaches a certain concentration, it will suffocate people. Under normal circumstances, Freon is safe and has little effect on the human body, but high concentrations of Freon can harm the human central nervous system, causing dizziness, headache, coma and even death hazards. The reason is that Freon can cause hypoxia asphyxiation, ranging from damage to human function, and death.

In addition to the harm to the human body, Freon is also harmful to the natural environment. For example, Freon can destroy the ozone layer and produce a greenhouse effect. More importantly, the greenhouse effect of Freon is higher than that of carbon dioxide. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to fire prevention and leakage prevention in the process of production, transportation and storage involving Freon, otherwise it will cause major safety accidents.
