The AHRI has published an update to its guideline on the recovery and recycling of refrigerant cylinders.
HVAC market manufacturers group the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute says the updated “guideline Q” includes best practices for the recycling of flammable refrigerant containers. The AHRI urges using anon-sparking pick to prepare the container for recycling.
“This guideline and the new additions are a critical part of the industry’s plan for the future of refrigerants,” said AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek. “As flammable refrigerants are being introduced as low-global warming potential alternatives to refrigerants currently in use, it is critical that industry not only handle these refrigerants safely, but also recycle the containers properly.”
