IIAR-6 changes could spell issues for facilities using anhydrous ammonia
Are you aware of IIAR-6?
|IIAR-6 establishes the minimum requirements for inspection, testing, and maintenance (ITM) applicable to safe closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems.
It is meant to aid in identifying what components should be inspected, tested, and maintained and how frequently these tasks should be performed.
Components of IIAR-6 include: Management Responsibilities, Record Keeping, Inspection, Testing, and maintenance.
IIAR 6 states “the owner or owner’s designated representative shall be responsible for overseeing and ensuring that inspection, testing and maintenance is performed in accordance with the requirements of this standard.”
In practical terms, this means management must ensure that the ITMs are being completed according to the IIAR 6 standard, which includes providing the necessary training, equipment, and any other resources required to perform the ITMs.
