The piping in your system covers a large footprint of the equipment that is susceptible to ‘deficiency’.
The safest, most logical testing for ammonia refrigeration provides data for compliance, early failure detection, maintenance, and more.
I assumed this job on a relatively “young” system would be similar to others we’ve conducted. I was wrong.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, mills started using more efficient equipment and processes to produce their pipes, with most major mills employing the “continuous mandrel” method.
