As the cooling industry continues to evolve, HVACR professionals need tools, guidance, support, and information that keep them on the cutting edge. Ref Tools puts all of that in the palm of their hand.
Danfoss announced today that Refrigerant Slider, their popular P/T calculation app that has over 2 million downloads, will transform into Ref Tools, an essential, all-in-one mobile app for air conditioning and refrigeration technicians. Ref Tools will give HVACR professionals the tools, guidance, support, and information to keep them on the cutting edge. Ref Tools includes five of Danfoss’s most popular and useful air conditioning and refrigeration tools:
While Refrigerant Slider is changing into Ref Tools, it will retain all the core functionality that made it a hit with millions of installers around the world. Users can still find Refrigerant Slider within Ref Tools and use it to quickly calculate pressure/temperature ratios for over 80 refrigerants.
Low-GWP Tool helps users find and compare climate-friendly refrigerants for retrofitting by checking compatibility with the cooling system’s TXV.
Troubleshooter helps users identify and compare symptoms in a refrigeration system that’s acting up. Once they identify the issue, Troubleshooter also recommends solutions to try.
Spare Parts lets users access and order an extensive list of Danfoss spare parts and service kits for industrial refrigeration applications, right from the job site.
Magnetic Tool helps users test and troubleshoot solenoid valve coils quickly and easily.
Ref Tools lets users track their most visited service sites and save unique settings for each one. Users can also access Danfoss’s popular Chilling with Jens podcast directly in the app, giving them a chance to learn something new about refrigeration while on the go.
“Ref Tools is an exciting next step into the future of digital tools in the cooling industry. By putting helpful tools in our customers’ hands, we hope to make their daily tasks in the field much easier so they can save time. Ref Tools includes more than the tools they already know so well – and there’s more coming down the road. We can’t wait to reveal what’s next,” said Janni Koie, Director of Concepts & Content at Danfoss Cooling.
