A-Gas responds to growing demand for CO2 refrigerant
A-Gas has increased its R744 (refrigerant-grade CO2) offering to meet the growing demand from UK retailers for refrigerants with lower global-warming potential. R744 is available in gas or liquid form and has excellent thermodynamic properties. Refrigerant-grade R744 has a moisture level below 10 ppm, as water and R744 systems do not mix.
The size of A-Gases’s refrigerant fleet has already been trebled, and the company has invested in specialist cylinder valves with residual-pressure devices to prevent contamination of the cylinder.
A-Gas has links with industry training specialist Cool Concerns to help ensure that users and handlers of R744 are well trained and proficient in handling it.
