Trade forums offer knowledge direct from the source

In the three forums, held in the halls in parallel with the exhibition, renowned presenters will hold more than 150 talks on cutting-edge topics. The latest product developments and innovative solutions for energy efficiency and energy saving will be showcased in Hall 9, in the forum on applications, training and codes of practice: leak detection, recovery and reprocessing of refrigerants, no biofilm and thus no Legionella, implementation of the 42nd Ordinance under the Federal Immission Protection Law (BImSchV), CE labelling, replacement with alternative refrigerant mixtures, EC fans for cooling towers, cooling tower hygiene, water chemistry, EN 378, defect guarantees, and much more besides. The Refrigeration Technology forum in hall 7A will cover topics such as low-GWP refrigerants, eco-efficiency in supermarkets, R290 compressors, water loop systems, sliding temperature refrigerants, heat recovery, market trends in commercial application, compressor developments, application of A2 and A3 refrigerants, IoT in various applications, refrigerant leak detectors, ejectors for R744 systems, and the importance of frequency converters in refrigeration technology. The forum in hall 4A will deal with air conditioning, ventilation and heat pumps, with a focus on the following: cloud solutions, refrigerant solutions for air-conditioning and heat pumps, challenges created by urbanisation, high-temperature heat pumps, recooling systems, system solutions for cold water, hybrid VRF, R32 applications, water as a refrigerant, fans of the future, filter technologies, etc.
