Frequently Asked Questions
They are used refrigerants cleaned by means of filtration, distillation, separation or other mechanical processes. As a result, our finished product meets the same standards as newly produced refrigerant.
Are reclaimed refrigerants inferior to newly produced refrigerants?
No. Both reclaimed and newly produced refrigerants must meet the same standards (AHRI 700) and have the same performance characteristics. Reclaimed refrigerants that have passed chemical analysis by an AHRI approved test program are considered equal to "newly produced" grade product. Always ask for complete laboratory certifications.
Is it better to pay more for newly produced refrigerant?
No. Newly produced and reclaimed products look alike, smell the same, weigh the same - are the same.
What is AHRI certification and what does that mean?
Achieving AHRI (Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute) certification means that A-Gas RemTec meets or exceeds the standards that the AHRI has set forth. This program requires that AHRI representatives come to A-Gas RemTec's facilities four times a year to analyze our reclaimed refrigerant. In order to maintain certification we must pass all applicable standards. We are proud to be an AHRI 700 certified reclaimer.
What types of refrigerants are reclaimed to AHRI 700 Standards?
A-Gas RemTec reclaims R11, R12, R22, R23, R114, R123, R-134a, R500, R502, and R13B1. It is our main business to reclaim and separate refrigerants and halons and A-Gas RemTec has invested in the technology and research to create advanced systems that make it possible to offer a full range of products and services that our competition does not match.
