Moving forward with planning ahead for the phase out of R22.

Do a health check on all your refrigeration systems.   R22 refrigerant will still be available for a while longer but the price will always be on the increase as supply and demand take effect.    Some of the older air conditioners still use R22, but our concern at the moment is for dairy refrigeration systems for the obvious reason that they can hold up to 40 kg of refrigerant.

If you do the maths… that is approx..   $10,000 breakdown costs on dairy refrigeration plant.   

Our experiences shows that there a various breakdowns that cause a system to loose large quantities of gas.   Cracked pipes, internal leaks in that vats structure, leaking seals etc.   These large loses add up to a large amount of money, money better spent on upgrading to a more efficient refrigerant system.   Saving money in both refrigerants and electricity. 

WE DO NOT AND WILL NOT RECOMMEND THE USE OF FLAMMABLE GASES TO REPLACE THE R22.

In the meantime, price up a retro fit system so you can budget it on and be prepared.  Maintain your current system and actually get a health check report done on your current system now.

Talk to the field officers about finance and what is available to you and be a leader in your game and get smart about how you think in regards to cooling your milk smartly and efficiently. 

Don’t wait for tomorrow what can be done today!

COLD HARD FACTS ABOUT R22

Welcome to our Blog!

The purpose of our blog is to keep you informed on tips, to keep you in the loop with the best cooling solutions from the team in the know. Stay tuned in as there is lots we would like to share….

My name is Angelo, I have been in the refrigeration industry for a very long time and I have never thought about being a blogger, but it is a great way to share from my experiences and accumulated knowledge formed by many years of being a refrigeration mechanic. Different members of our team will get a chance to blog.

Right now…. We need to talk about but a very important topic which concerns the majority of our clientele – dairy farmers especially.. It is the phasing out of R22 refrigerant.
pg147-R22Refrigerant-1[1] 
There is a 90% reduction in the production of R22. By 2020, it will no longer be available. The last few years have proven stressful for everyone on all levels of the supply chain, mainly pricing and the ability to keep the flow of money and everyone on the chain satisfied.

Confused by the introduction and timing of the carbon tax, it’s true to say there was some implications to the pricing, however, this was not the reason behind the price spike for R22.
The Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the Ozone Layer has set out legally binding obligations to phase out the production and consumption of ozone depleting substances.

e would like to emphasis – it can be as early as 2016.
Our experience of dealing heavily with dairy farmers tells us that we need to act or start to make provisions for the future now.
There is talk of a change over refrigerant however is also comes at a price.
It is really important to begin preparation for the inevitable.
