A-Gas boosts reclaim at US plant

USA: Expanding its refrigerant reclaim capacity in the US, A-Gas is completing the construction of its latest refrigerant separation towers at its Rhome, Texas, plant. 

A-Gas’ new separators will be operational early next year and will more than double the separation capacity at the current site. An AHRI-certified laboratory has also been added at the Rhome plant, making it A-Gas’ second AHRI lab in the US. 

The new separation equipment and AHRI lab will enable the reclamation of mixed refrigerants received from customers across the US. Even the most complicated mixes of refrigerants can be separated into their components and reconstituted into AHRI-700-certified products through this technology. 

“This technology continues to push forward responsible lifecycle refrigerant management. It ensures our valued customers have access to a long-term, sustainable supply of reclaimed refrigerants for all their needs without compromising their values,” said A-Gas Americas’ commercial vice president of refrigerant management Taylor Ferranti.

A-Gas says that the expansion project, which began earlier this year, represents its continued commitment to increasing the quantity of reclaimed refrigerant gases.

An expansion of the recovery and reclaim of refrigerant gases is seen as essential for the implementation of the production and consumption phase down of HFCs under the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act (AIM Act).
