2019 Michigan Refrigerant Services Recovery

Ozone is very rare in our atmosphere, averaging about three molecules of ozone for every 10 million air molecules. In spite of this small amount, ozone plays a vital role in the atmosphere.

Ozone is mainly found in two regions of the Earth's atmosphere. Most ozone (about 90%) resides in a layer that begins between 6 and 10 miles (10 and 17 kilometers) above the Earth's surface and extends up to about 30 miles (50 kilometers). This region of the atmosphere is called the stratosphere. The ozone in this region is commonly known as the ozone layer.

Stratospheric ozone (sometimes referred to as "good ozone") plays a beneficial role by absorbing most of the biologically damaging ultraviolet sunlight (called UV-B), allowing only a small amount to reach the Earth's surface. The absorption of ultraviolet radiation by ozone creates a source of heat, which actually forms the stratosphere itself (a region in which the temperature rises as one goes to higher altitudes). Ozone thus plays a key role in the temperature structure of the Earth's atmosphere. Without the filtering action of the ozone layer, more of the Sun's UV-B radiation would penetrate the atmosphere and would reach the Earth's surface. Many experimental studies of plants and animals and clinical studies of humans have shown the harmful effects of excessive exposure to UV-B radiation.

Chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs, are a class of gases once widely used as refrigerants and propellants. Although they are both nontoxic and very useful, CFCs damage the ozone layer.

CFCs are fairly nonreactive. This feature makes them both attractive as industrial chemicals and dangerous to the environment. Because they are so nonreactive, they break down very slowly when released into the atmosphere, giving them time to reach the stratosphere, and the ozone layer.

When they are exposed to strong ultraviolet light, CFCs finally break down to release lone chlorine atoms with an unpaired electron. These chlorine atoms are highly unstable and react with ozone to break it down into oxygen through a type of chain reaction. A single chlorine atom can react with as many as 100,000 molecules of ozone before it finally combines with another atom to form a stable compound. That's why even small numbers of CFC molecules can destroy large quantities of ozone and remain active in the upper atmosphere for long periods of time.

CFCs don't remain active indefinitely, of course; over time, chemical reactions convert the chlorine atoms into other more stable compounds that don't break down ozone. That's why CFC levels in the stratosphere will gradually fall as long as humans cease to add these gases to the atmosphere. Given enough time with no CFCs present, the ozone layer can eventually recover from the damage, because ozone is formed in the upper atmosphere through natural chemical processes. Production of CFCs was phased out by the mid-1990s through an international agreement called the Montreal Protocol.

One thing that is being done is refrigerant reclamation. What this entails is the the evacuation of refrigerants from HVAC/R equipment—once reclaimed, the refrigerant can be recycled (cleaned for reuse) or reprocessed to meet purity specifications. This is done with CFCs to bring them out of circulation and provide new alternatives.

Our highly-trained technicians are constantly updated on new regulations, training, and protocols for dealing with refrigerants you’ll find in almost any commercial refrigeration or HVAC unit. If you need a professional refrigerant company to deal with your refrigerants, give us a call at 844-PURECFC (787-3232) and we’d be more than happy to tell you how we can help. You can also use our online contact form if you don’t have time for a lengthy phone call.

2019 Michigan R-22 Recovery

R-22 is a colorless gas that also goes by the name of chlorodifluoromethane. Its most common name is Freon. Its use as a propellant and refrigerant has been banned by the EPA because of its high ODP or ozone depletion potential, and GWP or global warming potential. In short, R-22 refrigerants are a widely known environmental hazard.

R-22 usually comes in light green-colored cylinders and they have been phased out in the United States under the Montreal Protocol in 1987. The Montreal Protocol is an international treaty with a focus on phasing out any chemical or substance that is proven to be harmful to the ozone layer. It was first brought up in September 16, 1987 and it was finalized for implementation beginning on January 1, 1989.

R22 refrigerant has been used for years in central air conditioners, heat pumps, mini-splits, car AC systems, and other refrigeration equipment. It’s the key to absorbing and removing heat from a space.


Why is R22 being phased out?


R-22 is a greenhouse gas that contributes to the depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer and to global warming. Since we rely on the ozone to absorb harmful UV radiation, it’s very important to pinpoint and eliminate the use of greenhouse gases whenever possible. The R-22 phase-out is occurring in accordance with the U.S. Clean Air Act and the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.

Since 2010, the manufacturing of new R-22 has been prohibited. Only recycled and reused R-22 may be used to service HVAC units such as refrigerators and air conditioners. This new practice is called “recovery,” wherein all traces of the gas are sucked out from the machines and are replaced with a safer alternative, instead of pumping new R-22 into the units.

In January 1, 2015, it was declared illegal and punishable by law to service refrigerators and air conditioning units that still used R-22 refrigerant. Broken equipment that needed servicing were required to be replaced with units that did not need to run using R-22.

Now that it’s a given that you’ll have to replace the R-22 in any HVAC, heat pump, or refrigeration unit that uses it, we have two exciting options for you:


The Buy Back Program


When you sign up for the Buy Back Program, you’ll have three options available to you. First, we can give you good-as-new refrigerants in return for your used, contaminated or burnt refrigerants. Second, we can buy your old or used refrigerants at very competitive rates. And last, but not least, we can exchange your used refrigerants for EPA-compliant and environmentally safe types of refrigerants. In addition to the state-of-the-art technology we use to minimize leaks and toxic contamination; after completing all recovery procedures our team will inspect the surrounding area for any leakages or unwanted waste so that we can ensure that your workplace is safe.


The Clean Exchange Program


Our Clean Exchange Program enables you to swap your expired or otherwise useless refrigerant containers with clean, up-to-date and DOT certified cylinders. We handle all kinds of cylinders ranging from full to empty and we retrieve even those that have expired. Not only that, we pay you for every drop of refrigerant that we can recover from them. We are well-equipped to handle containers of all sizes starting from 30 pounds to as much as 125 pounds. Our operation takes care of everything from pickup, consolidation and delivery. On top of that, we offer complete and detailed EPA documentation for all clients. 

Not only do you get a new revenue stream from us paying you for your old, used refrigerants, you also take a step towards a healthier, eco-friendlier environment by supporting and participating in the elimination of toxic refrigerants. If you want to learn more about our programs that can help you get a handle on R-22, simply call us at 844-PURECFC (787-3232). You can also opt to use our online contact form. We at Refrigerant Services LLC are fully certified to handle and recycle your old refrigerants so you can be sure that you’re getting the best quality service and safety for your employees.

2019 Michigan Summer Refrigerant Recovery Services

Ever wondered how the summer heat affects your refrigerant? To understand what happens, let’s take a look at a refrigeration system and how it keeps things cool.

The purpose of a refrigeration system is to move heat from an area where it is not desired and dispose of it where it doesn’t matter. Refrigeration systems, whether commercial, industrial or domestic, are designed for certain temperatures. The interior of the space, product load, container construction and any other heat sources basically determine the amount of refrigerant required to satisfy to the cooling needs.

At the intended outdoor temperature, the condenser will be able to condense the required amount of refrigerant at the same speed as the evaporator is boiling the liquid and the compressor is pumping the gas. As the outdoor ambient temperature to the condenser changes, the system tries to rebalance itself. If the temperature rises, the condenser pressure tends to rise as well. This pressure change has to be overcome by the compressor. The compressor works harder—drawing more current as well as getting hotter. The higher pressure will also have a higher liquid temperature. As the liquid boils in the evaporator, there is less effective refrigeration done because of added heat from the liquid being warmer than design. There’s more energy required at higher temperatures.

In short: hotter refrigerant, harder working components, and higher energy bills. Your refrigerant is going to be working overtime to keep you cool, and can result in degradation of its ability to transport heat, as well as possible dirt and contamination from broken or overworked parts.

But hold on, it’s not all bad. We can say that because we have two programs that are great for any business that deals with refrigerants: the Buy Back Program and the Clean Exchange Program.


The Clean Exchange Program


Do you have old, dilapidated refrigerant cylinders lying around? We think that Refrigerant Services LLC’s Clean Exchange Program could be what you need.

The primary feature of the Clean Exchange Program is that we’ll take your expired or otherwise outdated refrigerant cylinders and give you back clean, fully-certified, and EPA-compliant cylinders. We accept any kinds of cylinders, whether or not they’re full.

Our team of highly skilled, expertly trained technicians is qualified to recover all sorts of refrigerants. We’re ready to take care of all the steps required (which can only be performed by licensed technicians). Extraction, collection and disposal of harmful refrigerants are all just one call or email away – just get in touch with us and schedule a date for us to pick up your old or expired refrigerants.


The Buy Back Program


For our Buy Back Program, we recover used, contaminated, or even burnt refrigerant. Not only that – we’ll even pay you for whatever we can recover! With this program we give you several options: we either give you back good-as-new refrigerants, buy it from you, and last but not least, we can exchange your used refrigerants for EPA-compliant and environmentally safe types of refrigerants.

When recovering your refrigerants, we make sure to squeeze every last bit of remaining refrigerant while removing contaminants which may still be present in them. This is our way of making sure that you get the highest value for your refrigerants.

The feature that will interest you the most about these two programs is that we can actually help you make money: we’ll pay you for refrigerants that were otherwise going to just sit in your cylinders or go to waste in your HVAC system. This is exactly the kind of unutilized asset that you don’t want!

Not only will we pay you for these refrigerants, we’ll do the work as quickly as cleanly as you would expect from seasoned professionals. We understand that you don’t want any interruptions or disruptions in your workflow. That’s why we make the process so simple and hassle-free.

There you have it, two possible revenue streams to keep your business from sweating this summer. If your business uses refrigerants and has old, used, or dirty refrigerants going unused, we can help! You might be surprised at just how much we can give you for it – and you’ll have the knowledge that your actions are, in a way, helping create a cleaner, greener future. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call at 844-PURECFC (787-3232). If you don’t have time for a lengthy phone call to discuss how we can assist you, we also have an online contact form that you can fill out – we’ll get in touch with you at a more convenient time.

2019 Michigan Refrigerant Montreal Protocol

Here at Refrigerant Services LLC we pride ourselves on what we can do for our clients. Specializing in refrigerants means we work in an area that’s constantly growing, and as such we want to help our clients grow as well. That means giving each and every customer the best possible deals that not only help their bottom line, but also help take care of the world around us. After all, what’s the point of growth if we’ve poisoned our living spaces and our environment? We like to think of it as a top-to-bottom approach to our service that gives you everything you need and nothing you don’t.

In light of that, we offer one program in particular that we think can really help your business if you have old refrigerants and refrigerant cylinders lying around. There’s a potential revenue stream waiting to be exploited, and not only that, it’ll help you clean up your workplace as well.


The Clean Exchange Program


The idea behind the Clean Exchange Program is that we’ll take your expired or otherwise outdated refrigerant cylinders and give you back clean, fully-certified, and EPA-compliant cylinders. We accept any kinds of cylinders, whether or not they’re full. Not only that, we’ll give you complete documentation for every cylinder you get back. We want you to rest assured that what we give back is up to the proper specifications and also follows all EPA regulations. Violating these regulations can carry hefty fines, so making sure you’re covered is our number one priority.

Why is this so great? For one thing, it helps you keep your refrigerants organized and it can be more cost-efficient than doing an exchange at a supply house. Damaged cylinders that would be nigh-impossible to refill or are still half-full of phased-out refrigerants are no problem for us. You’ll get back new, clean cylinders to fill with whatever you need.

Not only do we deal with all the standard size cylinders (30 lbs., 50 lbs., 100 lbs., 125 lbs., or 240 lbs.), we can provide you with containers to rent up to half a ton. We also provide tank-renting services by request if you need a new tank in your area. For any extraordinary cases or special needs, simply get in touch with us and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Typically, this kind of service would mean you’d have to bring the cylinders over to our location—but we believe in going the extra mile, literally. What that means is that we’ll come to you, instead. Carting around heavy, bulky cylinders doesn’t sound like service to us, so you can rest assured we’ll take care of consolidation and on-site recovery. Like we said, we want you to get the best deal possible, and you can’t very well do that if your workers are pulled away from business-critical tasks to deal with old cylinders.


So, what’s the bottom line?


Not only will we give you new cylinders at the best prices we have, we’ll even pay you for every drop of refrigerant you can get from your old, dilapidated cylinders. You’re saving money by getting newer, more efficient and eco-friendly refrigerants and cylinders, and you’ll get paid for it as well.

Our highly-trained and EPA-certified technicians are ready to help not only by getting you the best deals for your old refrigerants, but also by removing potentially harmful refrigerants from your workplace. If you’re ready for a fresh start, we’re just a phone call away—you can reach us at 844-PURECFC (787-3232). We’d be more than happy to tell you more about what our Clean Exchange Program can offer; and how we can work together towards a cleaner, brighter and greener future. If you don’t have time for a call, we have a convenient online form which you can fill out and someone will reach out to you when you’re available.

2019 Michigan Refrigerant Montreal Protocol

Come 2020, any and all equipment that utilizes R-22 refrigerants will either have to be phased out or retrofitted to utilize more environmentally safe refrigerants. The Montreal Protocol which calls for this ban on chemicals and substances that have proven to damage the environment has been a key piece of the puzzle for environmental conservation and the health of the ozone layer.

The Montreal Protocol was originally meant to minimize and possibly reverse the damage to our ozone layer. Its main goal was to educate and spread awareness about the environmental effects of chlorofluorocarbons found in commonly-used refrigerants. Additionally, it launched global campaigns urging for the removal of these CFCs. Upon its enactment in 1987, an agreement to pull out or phase out the distribution and production of these harmful chemicals was signed by a majority of the world’s nations.

Ideally, the protocol mandates that the U.S. should have reduced its R-22 consumption by 90% in January 1, 2015. Although the EPA continues to strictly implement the guidelines on R-22 consumption, and has so far done a good job in doing so, a number of industrial users are still using and in possession of this type of refrigerant.

Businesses that don’t follow environmental protocols can be penalized heavily by the EPA, so hiring a competent, professional refrigerant services company to help you out is definitely a must. We at Refrigerant Services LLC have the following options available so transitioning from R-22 doesn’t have to be a huge hassle, and may even earn you back some money.


The Buy-Back Program


In our buy-back program, we recover used, contaminated or even burnt refrigerants and pay you for them. With this hassle-free program we give you several options: we either give you back good-as-new refrigerants, buy it from you, or exchange it for another EPA-approved type of refrigerant.

When recovering your refrigerants, we make sure to squeeze every last bit of remaining refrigerant while removing contaminants which may still be present in them. This is our way of making sure that you get the highest value for your refrigerants.

Additionally, we work quickly and efficiently so that your daily business operations are not interrupted nor hampered. To avoid accidents like leaks and even wastes, we separate the refrigerant from the contaminants using leading-edge technology to ensure that we extract the highest purity and volume possible.


The Clean Exchange Program


Our clean exchange program enables you to swap your expired or otherwise useless refrigerant containers with clean, up-to-date and DOT certified cylinders. We handle all kinds of cylinders ranging from full to empty and we retrieve even those that have expired. Not only that, we pay you for every drop of refrigerant that we can recover from them. We are well-equipped to handle containers of all sizes starting from 30 pounds to as much as 125 pounds. Our operation takes care of everything from pickup, consolidation and delivery. On top of that, we offer complete and detailed EPA documentation for all clients.

2019 Refrigerant Exchange Michigan Ohio Indiana

The flowers aren’t the only ones wishing for a great spring. Your business would also likely benefit from a shot in the arm this spring. New opportunities for growth are always great, and we think you may be missing out on one right now if you aren’t already taking advantage of it. If you have old refrigerants and/or refrigerant cylinders lying around unused, then that’s a potential source of revenue for your company right now. While everyone is trying to recover from a brutally cold winter, you could be racing ahead towards a strong spring and summer. How do you turn these things into a new source of income? Let us explain just how with two programs available to you:


The Clean Exchange Program


We at Refrigerant Services LLC are willing to buy back old, recycled, or non-compliant refrigerants from you through the Clean Exchange Program. This is a simple but effective way to open up a new source of revenue for your business. Not only will you get rid of unwanted refrigerants that are harmful to your employees and to the environment, you will also earn some cash from doing the world a good deed.

If you have some old, expired, or non-compliant refrigerants lying around, the Clean Exchange Program will allow you to replace these with clean and safe alternative refrigerants.

The Clean Exchange Program accounts for full, partially full, empty and even expired refrigerant cylinders. These will then be replaced with new, clean, DOT-certified cylinders. The best part is, we’ll compensate you for every drop of old refrigerant we collect from your cylinders.

Your replacement cylinders can be anywhere from 30lbs to half a ton. If you’re going to be exchanging an even larger amount of refrigerants, just let us know and we can work something out for sure. Extraction, replacement, and delivery of all refrigerants can be handled by us.


The Buy-Back Program


If you have unused refrigerants, sealed cylinders, or leftover R-22 from your business properties, we can help take these off of your hands and even pay you for your trouble. We have solutions for all unused refrigerants. Whether you have new refrigerants, reclaimed refrigerants, or mixed refrigerants, we can schedule a pick-up at a time that is convenient for you.

Here are the options available for you:

  1. We can give you good-as-new refrigerants in return.
  2. We can buy your old or used refrigerants from you at the most reasonable rates possible.
  3. We can exchange your used refrigerants for a more EPA-compliant and environment-friendly type of refrigerant.

After our refrigerant recovery procedures, we will also perform an inspection of your immediate surroundings to ensure that there is no harmful leakage or unnecessary waste lying around. Our program is deliberately designed to pay you good money for your recovered or unused viable refrigerants and dispose of other refrigerants that are harmful or of no use. We offer fast and free pick-ups of used cylinders, and we can even help you get new ones. The best part is that every step of our process is proven to be EPA-compliant, so you can be assured of your peace of mind when you work with us.

Sounds too good to be true, right? There has to be a catch. Amazingly, there isn’t—this situation is a win-win-win. You get money for refrigerants that would otherwise go unused, we get to reclaim those refrigerants and help dispose of them, and the environment benefits from fewer harmful or dirty refrigerants out in the world.

f you or anyone you know have used refrigerants, want to make extra money, and even help save the environment, give us a call at 844-PURECFC (787-3232) and let’s talk about how Refrigerant Services LLC can help you. If you don’t have time for a lengthy phone call to discuss how we can assist you, we also have an online contact form — once you’ve submitted it, we can get back to you at a more convenient time.

2019 Michigan Winter Refrigerant Recovery

It’s smack dab in the middle of winter and that means teeth-chatteringly cold temperatures in Michigan! What does this mean for any refrigerants that your business may use? To give an answer to that question, first we need to know the basics of the refrigeration cycle.

The job of the refrigeration cycle is to remove unwanted heat from one place and discharge it into another. To do this, the refrigerant is pumped through a closed refrigeration system; it keeps the refrigerant from becoming contaminated and controls its flow, since it is a liquid in some parts of the cycle and a gas or vapor in other phases.

Heat will travel from the warmer substance to the evaporator cooled by the evaporation of the refrigerant within the system, causing the refrigerant to "boil" and evaporate, changing it to a vapor. This is similar to the change that occurs when a pail of water is boiled on the stove and the water changes to steam, except that the refrigerant boils at a much lower temperature.

During winter, you’d most likely use a heat pump to heat your workplace. As the outdoor temperature gets colder, there is less and less heat in the air for the refrigeration system inside a heat pump to extract. It then becomes the job of the compressor and other components to amplify the heat in the system. No matter what heat pump you have, as it gets colder out its ability to extract heat and move it inside is reduced.

For a business owner’s perspective, what does this all mean? Simply that winter is hard on any system that relies on refrigerant—you need to squeeze every bit of efficiency out of them that you can, and you can’t do that if your refrigerants are old, dirty, or contaminated. To help with this we’ve got two simple options for you:


The Clean Exchange Program


Having old, damaged, or useless cylinders lying around isn’t just a waste of space, but can also be a waste of money. The main idea behind our Clean Exchange program is that we take your old, dilapidated or empty refrigerant cylinders and replace them with new, DOT-certified cylinders. We’ll pay you for any old or expired refrigerants that we can recover from your cylinders, so you aren’t just getting new cylinders, you’ll even get a new source of income. Rest assured we’ll give you our most competitive rates for your expired or leftover refrigerant – money that would otherwise have been left on the table.


The Buy Back Program


When you sign up for the Buy Back Program, you’ll have three options available to you. First, we can give you good-as-new refrigerants in return for your used, contaminated, or burnt refrigerants. Second, we can buy your old or used refrigerants at very competitive rates. And last, but not least, we can exchange your used refrigerants for EPA-compliant and environmentally safe types of refrigerants. In addition to the state-of-the-art technology we use to minimize leaks and toxic contamination, after completing all recovery procedures our team will inspect the surrounding area for any leakages or unwanted waste so that we can ensure that your workplace is safe. That’s a deal and a half.

The beginning of a new year is the chance for a fresh start! We’d be happy to tell you more about what our Clean Exchange Program and Buy Back Program have in store for you – simply call us at 844-PURECFC (7873232). If you’re too busy with the post-holiday rush and don’t have time to call, we have an online form that you can fill out and we’ll get in touch with you at a more convenient time.

2019 Michigan Refrigerant Recovery

A new year means a fresh start and a fresh chance to earn more. Every business owner will be looking for ways to kick start 2019. To help you do that, we at Refrigerant Services LLC have two great options: the Buy Back Program and the Clean Exchange Program. Learn how both of these can start creating a new revenue stream for your business.


The Clean Exchange Program


To put it simply, the idea behind our Clean Exchange Program is that we will take any old, unused refrigerant cylinders in your workplace and replace them with new ones. It doesn’t matter what kind of cylinder it is—whether or not it’s full or empty, and whether or not it’s expired or dilapidated.

Old cylinders that haven’t seen the light of day for years are no problem for our expert technicians. They’re qualified to recover all sorts of refrigerants. Our highly skilled personnel are raring to help you start the new year—in ways only licensed technicians can. They’ll extract and collect refrigerants and dispose of any harmful or unusable refrigerants to ensure you get the most value out of your cylinders.

Our techs are also equipped and certified to handle cylinders and tanks of all sizes, weights, and dimensions. In return you get documented, certified replacement cylinders in accordance with the strictest EPA regulations regarding refrigerant handling. Just let us know if you have special requests in terms of cylinder or tank size and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Typically, this kind of service would mean you’d have to bring the cylinders over to our location—but we believe in going the extra mile, literally. What that means is that we’ll come to you, instead. Carting around heavy, bulky cylinders doesn’t sound like a great start to your new year, so we can do it for you instead! Complete consolidation and on-site recovery are our specialty.


The Buy Back Program


Under our Buy Back Program, those same expert technicians will recover contaminated, burnt, or just plain old used refrigerants. There are several options available: we’ll either buy your refrigerants, give you back good-as-new refrigerants, or even exchange your previously used refrigerants for newer, more environmentally-safe and EPA-compliant refrigerants.

When we perform the process of recovering your refrigerants, our cutting edge technology squeezes out every last bit of refrigerant possible while effectively separating contaminants. We do this to make sure that you can get the absolute highest possible value for your refrigerants.

If for the Clean Exchange Program we go the extra mile, we do the same for the Buy Back Program. We do in-house consolidation to make sure that any unnecessary leakage and waste are avoided. We separate refrigerants from contaminants to give you the highest purity and volume possible. This is done in order for you to get the highest value possible.


Start the new year with new revenue


The key feature of both of these great programs is that we pay you for refrigerants that would otherwise go to waste, do the work quickly and efficiently to minimize workplace interruption, and can schedule these services at your convenience. Just the thing to kick your 2019 into high gear from the get go.  

We’d love to tell you more about what Refrigerant Services LLC can offer. You just have to pick up the phone and give us a call at 844-PURECFC (7873232) to learn more. If you don’t have time for a lengthy phone call to discuss how we can assist you, we also have an online contact form that you can fill out – we’ll get in touch with you at a more convenient time.
