  • Publication number: 20210356154
    Abstract: Provided is a measure against a refrigerant leak. A heat load processing system includes: a heat exchanger unit including a heat exchanger; a refrigerant leak detector; and a controller that controls an operation of a ventilator. The heat exchanger is connected to a refrigerant pipe through which a refrigerant flows and a heat medium pipe through which a heat medium flows, and configured to cause the refrigerant and the heat medium to exchange heat with each other. The refrigerant leak detector detects a refrigerant leak in the heat exchanger unit. The ventilator ventilates in a facility device room where the heat exchanger unit is installed. When a refrigerant leak is detected by the refrigerant leak detector, the controller executes a process (a refrigerant leak third control) of increasing a ventilation air volume of the ventilator.
