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.
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.
The timeline for imports to cease for Australia is something w
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.
If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.
If your refrigeration system is reliant on R22 refrigerant act now, know what is required for your situation, the costs etc.
