Ammonia Safety


Due to the wide variety of certifications and recertifications available in this discipline, this course is not available on a regularly scheduled basis.

The liquid ammonia used in refrigeration systems is ammonia gas that has been compressed into a pure liquified form, sometimes referred to as anhydrous ammonia.

Ammonia gas is very irritating to the eyes, nose, and respiratory system. Depending on the concentration, exposure to ammonia can cause coughing, chest pain, breathing difficulty, bronchopneumonia, pulmonary edema, and death from bronchial spasms. Ammonia is a severe eye irritant; it can penetrate the eye quickly, causing permanent blindness. Contact with the skin or eyes can cause severe and potentially fatal burns.
