New RiskWise F-Gas Register – Log, Analyse and Manage F-Gas Data

30th April 2019

We’re excited to announce new functionality within RiskWise’s environmental management module, which allows users to demonstrate and ensure their compliance with all EU and UK fluorinated gas regulations.  In the commercial real estate sector, Fluorinated Gases (F-Gas) are commonly used as refrigerants which are used in stationary refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems.

Now preventative and reactive maintenance works on F-Gas containing equipment can be recorded on the new ‘F-Gas Register’ within RiskWise. Recording such data – including results of leak tests and the quantity of refrigerant added following leaks – is important for recording and highlighting any system leaks once they have been detected, so that clients can ascertain where a leak has occurred; an essential tool for emissions reporting. The system can then provide an email escalation to notify when a follow-up check on the system needs to take place. This will also help to identify trends, such as where equipment is regularly leaking, and so this can be used to inform allocation of capital for replacing equipment.

Furthermore, once data has been captured, RiskWise Dashboard reports can be configured to provide full reporting on F-Gas details for any of the information recorded across the portfolio properties or assets, to increase visibility. This data can be viewed in bar, stack, line and pie charts, showing ‘Total amount of F-Gas added’ and ‘Total amount of CO2 added’.  The refrigerant type and Global warming potential (GWP) can be stored to automatically calculate the COequivalent of F-Gas – useful for identifying maintenance requirements and emissions reporting. Additionally, as F-Gas readings are logged against individual assets, this can help identify any assets that contain refrigerants are being phased out.
