Ammonia Safety

Ammonia Safety

As the only one of the early refrigerants to remain in use, ammonia has been the backbone of the cold storage and food processing industries since the early 1900s. Ammonia has 3 main advantages over other industrial refrigerants.

  1. Ammonia does not deplete the ozone layer and it won't contribute to global warming.
  2. Ammonia refrigeration systems use less electricity than other refrigerants.
  3. Its recognizable pungent and irritating odor makes ammonia the safest refrigerant available.

Although ammonia is the number one source used as an industrial refrigerant, the hazards should not be overlooked. Ammonia is classified as a toxic gas which is a fire risk and may cause an explosion if not handled properly.
