|"Many food-processing facilities employ ammonia refrigeration systems. In most, if not all of these facilities the process pipes are housed on the roof for both safety and space considerations. As a result, the Facility Manager and Process Safety Manager both will have similar yet significantly different concerns as it relates to the systems and accessibility to those systems housed on the roof."
