Self Study Program 110 – Refrigerant R1234yf for air conditioning systems in SKODA AUTO vehicles

Self Study Program 110 – Refrigerant R1234yf for air conditioning systems in SKODA AUTO vehicles PDF free online

The EU Directive 2006/40/EC relating to emissions from air conditioning systems in motor vehicles places new demands on refrigerants used in car air conditioning units.

In response to this Directive, ŠKODA AUTO has been using a new refrigerant in its vehicles, R1234yf, since mid- 2016.

The respective components of the air conditioning circuit need to be adapted to the new refrigerant, and this self-study material provides more details in this respect.

Automotive air conditioning systems account for as much as 40% of all air conditioning systems worldwide.

The use of this environmentally-friendly refrigerant in car air conditioning systems will substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
