Sale and Purchase of Refrigerant
Refrigerant Supply Inc. actively
purchases your refrigerants, as well as selling refrigerants to its customers. As
CFC's are illegal to manufacture or import into the United States, our purchase, of your
CFC's, is just as important as our CFC sales.
Refrigeration Supply maintains a
minimal inventory of refrigerant. Refrigerant Supply usually has your refrigerant
sold, prior to receiving it from you. While Refrigerant Supply maintains a minimal
inventory, we have immediate access to unlimited volumes of refrigerant. Our policy
of minimal inventory, drastically cuts our operating costs. In turn this drastically
cuts our refrigerant pricing for clients purchasing material from us, as well as allowing
us to offer much higher purchase prices for refrigerant.
Whether purchasing or selling
refrigerants, pricing is contingent upon which category your refrigerants falls.
Below are the four grading categories:
1. Virgin Refrigerant - To
qualify as virgin refrigerant, the material must be packaged in its original containers
and still have its original factory seals. While not required, it is desirable that
30 and 50 pound cylinders be packaged in their original boxes.
2. Reclaimed Refrigerant - To qualify as reclaimed, the refrigerant must meet ARI
reclamation standards. To view ARI standards, go to our Reclaiming & Reclamation
page. Most refrigerant reclaiming facilities will provide a certificate and put a
reclaim seals on the containers to verify their purity. If you possess refrigerant
that has been removed from a chiller system, it is highly unlikely that your refrigerant
will meet these analytical parameters. Should you still feel your material may pass
this criteria, you can have your refrigerant tested by ISI (Integral Sciences Inc.).
You will find contact information for ISI on our Refrigerant Links Page.
3. Dirty Refrigerant - This is
the category you should count on when refrigerants are removed from service. In this
scenario, the material contains contamination of air, water, oil and particulates.
This refrigerant is still a marketable commodity, yet will require shipment to a
reclamation facility for processing. Refrigeration Supply can coordinate this
processing activity for you, or we can simply purchase your refrigerant as is.
4. Mixed Refrigerant - This
category indicates that your refrigerant is not just contaminated with air, oil, water,
and particulates, but rather also contains contamination from other refrigerants or
solvents. This material will require extensive processing to make your refrigerant a
marketable commodity. In this circumstance, your product may, or may not, be
economically feasible to be reclaimed.
Refrigerant Supply specializes in
the buying and selling of CFC's. We also market some of the higher priced HFC's and
HCFC's. Because R-22 and R-134a are so widely available, at such low prices,
Refrigerant Supply has found that it can only be competitive in this market when dealing
with whole skid quantities. Should you be purchasing refrigerant for any other
reason than resale, Refrigeration Supply will need verification or your certification to
