Bacharach Enhances Refrigerant Management Software for Supermarkets

Parasense platform streamlines compliance to EPA 608, CARB and F-Gas regulations.

Bacharach announces a new release to the Parasense platform to support requirements for refrigerant management. The new release provides users a streamlined regulation workflow enabling clear compliance with the EPA 608 requirements for 2019, as well as CARB and F-Gas regulations.

The newest release of the Parasense platform blends a user toolset complete with compliance calendar, automated leak rate calculator, intuitive analysis, guided data entry, and compliance reporting features. This upgrade provides for the detailed and robust record keeping of refrigerant usage, leak rates, repairs, revised equipment thresholds, repair/retire/retrofit timeframes, and other requirements ensuring continuity of legislation compliance for equipment owners.

Non-compliance to regulatory legislation can cost upwards toward $37,500 per day, per violation in EPA fines. The regulation workflow updates within the Parasense platform enables peace of mind to those having responsibility for regulatory compliance by automatically scheduling future tasks, and ensuring all required information is entered when creating records.

Adam Marsh, Product Manager for Parasense explains, “Development of the regulation workflow has been a fundamental evolution of the Parasense platform, and refrigerant compliance generally. The workflow has been carefully designed to distill regulations into clear processes, procedures and specific tasks that are easy to understand and follow. All users are guided through the same, correct procedure and any compliance tasks are scheduled automatically. This provides full visibility of compliance with regulations. The workflow clearly identifies any upcoming actions, with ample opportunity for planning and collaboration between teams to ensure compliance with the new 2019 regulation requirements for EPA Section 608 or any other refrigerant regulation”. 

Refrigerant leaks and emissions have a broad and costly impact on organizations. The cost of replacing the refrigerant itself, the loss in product and service, increased energy consumption, negative environmental impacts and safety implications are common consequences of refrigerant leaks. Adam continues, “Integrating leak detection with the Parasense platform gives the opportunity for rapid response times. This empowers engineering, refrigerant and maintenance managers to achieve the highest operational performance with the lowest emissions and equipment operating costs. Bacharach is the only company delivering both world leading 1PPM leak detection hardware and enterprise software dedicated to refrigerant compliance and management”.

Besides the updated regulation workflow, the Parasense platform has upgraded the user interface, providing a clean, crisp layout for users to easily navigate their refrigerant management in one place. The Parasense platform replaces the paradigm of multiple spreadsheets, to help equipment owners and contractors collaborate towards lowering refrigerant emissions and ensuring regulation compliance. The Parasense platform ensures secure access anytime, anywhere by any registered users.
