Pressure-Temperature Chart App Also LaunchedMORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., Feb 28, 2012 Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced the availability of two new mobile applications for HVAC contractors and refrigeration system engineers, designed to provide quick and accurate data for decision-making on the go. The new apps are downloadable to the iPad from iTunes. The iPhone version will be announced when available."Recent activity by the EPA to reduce manufacturers' allocations of R-22 has many customers looking for alternatives to retrofit their systems," said Ron Vogl, technical marketing manager, Honeywell Fluorine Products. "Our R-22 Retrofit comparison app lets them evaluate up to three refrigerants at a time, to help them make the right decision for their operation."Customers can conduct side-by-side comparisons on properties such as capacity, efficiency, and global warming potential (GWP). The built-in refrigerant calculator determines how much new refrigerant is needed to run the system, and the distributor locator helps users find a Honeywell Genetron wholesaler.HVAC mechanics and field technicians who have been carrying paper pressure-temperature (P/T) charts in their pockets will also appreciate the ability to scroll through a large, colorful display to select a refrigerant and get the data they need to perform the task.
