After some 120 years of field experience, the advantages and disadvantages of ammonia are well understood and have been described by Smiley and others in recent articles. Prior to the United States' adherence to the Montreal Protocol, the American refrigeration industry was conducted in a free market environment with minimal governmental interference. Driven by traditional market factors such as cost, reliability, and safety, each refrigerant and compressor design carved out a market niche over a period of time. Ammonia and the reciprocating compressor dominated the large-tonnage warehouse and industrial market while the chlorine-containing refrigerants took the rest. This situation was altered when the Environmental Protection Agency, acting under the provisions of the Clean Air Act and the Montreal Protocol, promulgated governmental regulations regarding refrigerants and service procedures. Traditional market factors were no longer controlling, having been superseded by governmental fiat and environmental concerns. Ammonia's advantages In this new market situation, ammonia, the oldest of refrigerants, possesses a number of attributes which may enable it to penetrate markets previously dominated by chlorine-containing refrigerants. 1. Ammonia avoids the political and environmental pressures generated …
