Gas-tracking app in more languages
The mobile app and desktop web portal, currently in English language, will be launched at the show in three more languages – German, Dutch and French. Visitors will be able to try out the software for themselves and find out how they can take advantage of a free trial.
GTO is described as a versatile tool to make the process of refrigerant monitoring and cylinder management a simple process. Free to download on smartphones and tablets, GTO, when used in conjunction with the web portal, has a range of useful features to help users comply with legislative requirements across Europe.
“The ability to monitor a cylinder fleet at a click of a button is a must-have now that a holistic approach to managing refrigerant use is growing in importance under the F-gas regulations,” said A-Gas International’s group brand and marketing manager Hayley Russell. “Having exact information on cylinder usage can save customers a considerable amount of time and money, while improving data accuracy.”
Information will also be available on the A-Gas stand about the company’s one-stop shop for refrigerants. A-Gas offers the complete cradle to grave service, providing virgin and reclaimed products and assisting with the recovery of used refrigerant and fire protection agents. These products can be recovered from large installations within the refrigeration, air conditioning and fire prevention industries using A-Gas’ portable recovery equipment and a dedicated recovery cylinder fleet.
A-Gas business development manager for Europe, Norman Solheid, will be presenting a technical seminar – Reclamation of Refrigerants – Bridge Over Troubled Waters – on Wednesday October 12 (1pm) in Hall 7A (Stand 7A-618). The seminar will explain how reclamation is growing in importance as customers look to fulfill their regulatory and legislative obligations under the F-gas regulations.
