Reclamation of Refrigerant is the Future

On January 1st 2020, R-22 will no longer be produced or imported and only, Recovered or Recycled, or Reclaimed supplies of R-22 will be available. The production and importation of R-22 is already being phased out. Owners are NOT required to stop using R-22 or to replace existing equipment . The phase out period allows owners to maintain equipment and provides the time to switch to ozone-friendly refrigerants when maintaining their current system is no longer cost effective. Without the implementation of the reclamation process R-22 supplies will be completely depleted.

Understanding the Difference

Recovered | Recycled | Reclaimed Refrigerants

    Recovered Refrigerant
    • Refrigerant that was removed from refrigeration or air conditioning equipment and stored in an external container WITHOUT necessarily being tested or processed in any way. Reuse is restricted to the system that it was recovered from, or in any other system owned by the same equipment owner.

    Recycled Refrigerant

    • Refrigerant that has been extracted and cleaned for reuse WITHOUT being tested for compliance with the stringent AHRI Standard 700 purity specifications required for reclaimed refrigerant. Reuse of recycled refrigerant is restricted to the system that it was recovered from, or in any other system owned by the same equipment owner ; otherwise, it must be sent to an EPA-certified reclaimer to restore it to AHRI Standard 700 purity specifications prior to resale.

    Reclaimed Refrigerant

    • Refrigerant that has been reprocessed using specialized machinery and tested to meet AHRI Standard 700 purity specifications.
    • Specification for Refrigerants specified in Appendix A to 40 CFR Part 82, Subpart F  1.1 Purpose. The purpose of this standard is to EVALUTE and ACCEPT or REJECT REFRIGERANTS REGARDLESS of SOURCE (i.e., new, reclaimed and/or repackaged) for use in new and existing refrigeration and air-conditioning products as required under 40 CFR part 82. [based on Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute] (AHRI) Standard 700-2016.
