How do you recycle refrigerant tanks?

How a refrigerant gas reclaimer works

One of the actions that can be done, and that we carry out in SISPRO, is to put an end to the problem of the irresponsible release of refrigerant gases. In our company, we offer a service of destruction or exchange of this type of gases.

Refrigerant gases are those that serve to lower the temperature (or maintain it) of a certain place. They do this through a process in which they extract heat from the site and transfer it to a body that has a lower temperature than the cooled site.

Recovery of refrigerant in minisplit

Professionals who exercise any activity or repair of equipment in the refrigeration industry have an obligation to protect the environment, so you have to prevent refrigerants are released into the atmosphere and the first thing to do is to recover the refrigerant.

In the event that the recovery machine does not have an evaporation system, it must be protected against the arrival of liquid refrigerant using the set of pressure gauges to be dosing, through the operating valves, its entry from the system to the machine (using them as if they were an expansion device) during the initial stages of recovery.

It is important to know the type and amount of refrigerant to be recovered. It is a very simple process used in any system containing no more than 9 kg of refrigerant charge.

Previously you have to remove the pivot valves of the service ports, use hoses with integrated ball valves and try to remove the liquid from the system first and then the remaining vapor, this action accelerates the rate of gas recovery.

How to recover refrigerant in the condenser

The Freddy Tramp Oil Separator removes trapped oil and impurities from refrigerants and liquids in a wide variety of applications. Typical applications include: machine tanks, scrubbers and process fluid buffer tanks. .

Recovered refrigerants and residual substances, labeling and storage.

Due to the laws governing the release of chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants (CFC’s) into the atmosphere, has resulted in the development of procedures to recover, recycle and reuse refrigerants.

Due to the laws governing the release of chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants (CFC’s) into the atmosphere, this has resulted in the development of procedures to recover, recycle and reuse refrigerants.

Recovery is to remove the refrigerant from a system in any condition that is found, and store it in an external container, without it being necessary to test or process it in any way.

When recovery is complete, the low side valve is closed. The system should settle for at least 5 minutes. If the pressure rises to 10 psig or more, it may mean that there are pockets of cold liquid refrigerant remaining through the system, and it may be necessary to restart the recovery process.
