07-12-2011

U bent hoogst waarschijnlijk wel geïnformeerd over de problemen die er zijn met koudemiddel met een dubieuze samenstelling die verkocht worden als R404A en R134a. wij laten u hierbij weten dat dit probleem al enige jaren speelt. Hoofdzakelijk betreft het R134a van Chinese makelij dat op de Europese markt wordt aangeboden. Er zijn al verschillende ongelukken beken. Daarbij zijn de recente ongevallen waarbij 2 slachtoffers zijn verongelukt zeer heftig.

Wij verzekeren u dat wij alle koelgassen die binnenkomen eerst analyseren alvorens deze in cilinders over te pompen.

Tevens voegen wij hierbij een bericht van Mexichem (Voorheen INEOS/ICI) waar in ook zij aangeven niets met deze praktijken van doen te hebben.

KLEA® Customers,

As you may already be aware due to the recent news reports, it has been brought to Mexichem’s attention that tainted or counterfeit R-134a refrigerant that was added to a refrigeration system in Vietnam has led to a number of explosions and fatalities. An investigation is under way and early results from several joint investigations, including refrigeration unit manufacturers and external reefer specialists, confirm suspicions that the cause of the explosions was contaminated gas in the cooling units.

There is no indication that would suggest any KLEA® products were involved in this incident, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s families at this time.

All customers are advised to purchase refrigerants from authorised and reputable suppliers as counterfeit refrigerants are extremely dangerious and alarmingly more widely available in the market.

Our KLEA® range of HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons) was developed to replace CFCs and HCFCs in many refrigeration, air conditioning and foam blowing systems around the world. These products have been designed for safety and efficiency - they are non-flammable, non-toxic and have unique thermophysical properties which make them highly efficient as coolants in refrigeration systems and as insulators in foam.
Mexichem Fluor recommends that our customers ensure that they purchase KLEA® products through our approved distribution network.
