The phase out of Reclaimed R22 At Midnight on the 31/12/2014 we will see the end of Reclaimed R22 and other Reclaimed HCFC’s. As of 1st January 2015 it will become illegal to use Reclaimed R22, or other Reclaimed HCFC’s for servicing refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. This legislative change, implemented under the Montreal Protocol, will affect the entire Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning industry, as Reclaimed R22 becomes obsolete. This ban is a SERVICE BAN ONLY; if the system is gas tight you DO NOT have to remove the Reclaimed R22 contained within it. However, be aware, that if (or when) the system leaks, the refrigerant will have to be replaced with a suitable alternative.
This phase out will mean Reclaimed R22 will no longer be available to purchase from PJ Refrigeration Ltd on or after 1st January 2015.
