It did not take long for the HVACR industry to respond to reports from overseas about rogue refrigerants used in hundreds of transport HFC-134a refrigeration systems, which allegedly were responsible for a number of explosions and at least three deaths.
The Pro-Set® MT69 Molecular Transformator™ dramatically improves the speed and high-temperature performance of refrigerant recovery machines. It is designed for use with all refrigerants. Its maximum effective heat sink temperature is 100°F.
Refrigerant manufacturer DuPont Refrigerants warned about counterfeit refrigerants in a statement issued to coincide with the 2012 International Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigerating Exposition.
Now that the industry is all confused about HCFC refrigerants, it might be time to pay a bit more attention to another refrigerant that has been around a long time, doesn’t cost all that much, and has a solid track record.
Contractors do not like to hear the word “callback.” They cost money and degrade a customer’s respect for and opinion of the service contractor. So how can a technician reduce the number of times he must revisit a repair?
Production and importation of HCFC refrigerants including R-22 have been on hold since the first of the year while the industry waits for an official go-ahead from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Refrigerant Management Canada (RMC) announced Linde Canada will no longer act as a collection service for the RMC program. Linde Canada’s work with RMC has ensured the safe collection and disposal of over 2.5 million kilograms of surplus refrigerant.
