The New and Improved DynaCycle Cylinder Exchange Program!

DynaCycle Refrigerant Exchange Program has been around for years, but we recently worked hand-in-hand with our customers to improve upon our existing program and make it easier and more beneficial for distributors and contractors alike. After some fine tuning we are excited to share that DynaCycle Cylinder Exchange Program is an easy way to get paid for your valuable refrigerants. We are still PAYING for gas! We accept all non-flammable HFO, HFC, HCFC and CFC Refrigerants.

Quick facts on our program:

  1. DynaCycle is a cylinder exchange program. Similar to a propane exchange program at your local supermarket or home DIY store, DynaCycle  will supply you with state-of-the-art composite recovery cylinders and steel recovery cylinders that you can sell or exchange with your customers. Send filled cylinders back to us, and we’ll send  you more empties. After we receive your batch of recovery cylinders, we’ll test, generate EPA  compliant documentation, and pay you top dollar for your refrigerants.

2. What we provide: DynaCycle will send the first crate of empty recovery
cylinders to the distributor’s processing location(s).
Contents will include the following-
• 50 lb. Steel Recovery Cylinders
• 30 lb. Steel Recovery Cylinders (optional)
• 50 lb. Composite Recovery Cylinders (optional)
• 125 lb. Steel Recovery Cylinders (optional)
• Cylinder Tags
• HazMat Shipping Labels and Address Labels
• Heavy Duty Shipping Container with Cardboard Cover

Your DynaCycle representative will work with you to determine the correct product mix for your initial shipment. You may choose to setup processing centers at individual locations, distribution hubs or a combination of both. When choosing where to establish DynaCycle processing centers, consider the time it will take to receive between 18 and 24 filled refrigerant recovery cylinders in those chosen locations.

3. The exchange: Your customer may exchange a filled DOT 4BA or 4BW recovery cylinder for an empty cylinder of similar type and capacity. There is no processing fee associated with a cylinder exchange. DynaCycle offers both composite and steel cylinders for resale so that distributors can sell an empty exchange cylinder to customers that do not have their own recovery cylinder to exchange.

4. Tagging: Filled recovery cylinders are tagged and placed in the shipping container that was provided by  DynaCycle. Distributor personnel will ensure that the DynaCycle cylinder tag is completely filled  in and securely attached the customer’s recovery cylinder.

5. How shipping works: When the distributor has packed the shipping container full (approximately 18 to 28 filled 30 lb and 50 lb recovery cylinders), DynaCycle should be contacted to initiate the shipping process and pickup scheduling.  DynaCycle will provide you with a pickup date, Bill of Lading and additional packing and shipping instructions as necessary. Similarly, DynaCycle will send a container of corresponding, empty recovery cylinders and tags to replenish the distributor’s processing center.

6. Reporting: Within about ten business days of DynaCycle receiving a shipment of filled recovery cylinders, the distributor will receive a payment report and  EPA Compliant receiving report (pdf format)  for each technician customer.

7. Payment: DynaCycle will issue payments in the form of check or credit, whichever the distributor prefers. Shipments received by the 20th day of the month will be issued payment at the end of the same month. Shipments received after the 20th day of the month will be paid at the end of the following month. Payments will always be issued less than 45 days from the receipt of a shipment of  recovered refrigerant.

DynaCycle recommends that distributors share a portion of the program proceeds with their contractor- technician customers in the form of a store credit. In our experience, this policy builds momentum in the program and increases customer loyalty. The contractor pay rate will be left to the discretion and direction of the wholesale distributor. Issuing store credit instead of cash or check allows the distributor to retain some margin dollars on the sale of product.

EPA Publishes New Venting Rules; Isobutane and Propane must be recovered from appliances

May 25, 2014- This is a summary of the EPA’s Revision of the Venting Prohibition for Specific Refrigerant Substitutes.epa logo
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, the Agency) is amending the  regulations promulgated as part of the National Recycling and Emission Reduction Program under section 608 of the Clean Air Act. EPA is amending those regulations to exempt certain refrigerant substitutes, listed as acceptable subject to use conditions in regulations promulgated as part of EPA’s Significant New Alternative Policy program under section 612 of the Act, from the prohibition under section 608 on venting, release or disposal on the basis of current evidence that their venting, release or disposal does not pose a threat to the environment. Specifically, EPA is exempting from the venting prohibition isobutane (R-600a) and R-441A, as refrigerant substitutes in household refrigerators, freezers, and combination refrigerators and freezers, and propane (R-290), as a refrigerant substitute in retail food refrigerators and freezers (stand-alone units only).Click Here for Final Rule

EPA Petitioned to Promote Recycling of HFC Refrigerants

Arlington, VA (February 3, 2014) – The Alliance for Responsible Atmospheric Policy (Alliance) submitted a petition for rulemaking to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy on Friday, January 31, 2014. The request seeks to include hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) under the provisions of Title VI, Section 608 of the Clean Air Act intended to reduce refrigerant gas emissions. Including HFCs under Section 608 would reduce the emissions of these important compounds that provide safe and effective refrigeration and air conditioning services but are also greenhouse gases. Section 608 already includes requirements for chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs).

The Alliance estimates that the inclusion of HFCs under Section 608 could reduce HFC emissions by 15-20% in the United States. The primary goal of Section 608 is to minimize the loss of refrigerant to the atmosphere by improving the practices utilized during the servicing of air conditioning and refrigeration appliances. It sets certain leak and recovery standards and requires enhanced certification of equipment and technicians.
