Reclamation & Destruction
Reclamation is the process during which contaminated halocarbons (CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and Halons) are processed through a proprietary reclamation system to remove impurities. This reclaiming process restores the product to a condition that meets or exceeds industry standards.
In some cases the reclamation of halocarbons is not an option, because it is so badly deteriorated that is not feasible to reclaim the agent back to industry standards, or the end-user requires destruction. A-Gas RemTec offers safe and reliable destruction options for all Halons, CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs.
Our complete services include: AHRI Certified Laboratory testing, on-site removal, and packaging, handling and shipping in accordance with all local, national and international regulations.
*A-Gas RemTec reclaims: Halon 1301, Halon 1211, Halon 2402, HFC-227ea, HFC-125, HFC-236fa, NOVEC 1230™, R11, R12, R22, R113, R-134a. Learn more about reclamation and destruction.
Halocarbon Banking & Strategic Reserves
(Halons, Alternative Fire Protection Agents and Refrigerants)
Halocarbon Banking & Strategic Reserve Programs are offered to customers that require their Halocarbons to be stored off site at a secure facility. Strategic Reserve Program also supplies customers with fully refurbished, recharged system bottles that are available 24 hours a day. The Reserve cylinders are kept in inventory for immediate response to a discharge.

Cylinder Recertifying & Refurbishing
A-Gas RemTec’s in-house U.S. DOT approved tank recertifying and refurbishing facility that offers a full array of services including shot blasting, painting and valve rebuilding. A-Gas RemTec recertifies 1 ton and 1/2 ton tanks; low and high pressure cylinders in various sizes.
Fractional Distillation is commonly used in petroleum refineries, chemical and natural gas processing plants, and is also the most efficient method of separating cross-contaminated (used) refrigerants. Over the last ten years, A-Gas RemTec has invested in fractional distillation equipment that is specifically designed to separate cross-contaminated refrigerant mixtures as part of our proprietary reclaiming process.
It should be noted that some fire protection agents and refrigerants cause formation of "azeotropes" when inadvertently mixed together. Azeotropic mixtures tend to retain the same composition in the vapor state as in the liquid state, when distilled or partially evaporated under a certain pressure. These mixtures form a strong bond and behave like a single component refrigerant displaying unique and unexpected properties.
A-Gas RemTec’s distillation towers can separate azeotropes into pure individual components using its proprietary processes, without resorting to other special techniques or consuming excessive amounts of energy.
