System Capabilities 

We have the ability to recover all halocarbon (R11, R12, R22, R123, R134a, R404a, R407C, R410a), hydrocarbon (Propylene, Propane, Methane, Ethane, Ethylene, Butane, and Pentane) and ammonia system charges. The most time consuming part of a complete system recovery is the vapor recovery process. Our unit will recover vapor at a rate unmatched by our competitors. This means less downtime and faster access into the refrigeration system for repair, leading to a faster turnaround.

  • Liquid recovery at rates of up to 6,000 gallons per hour.
  • Vapor recovery at rates of up to 4,415 pounds per hour.
  • Recycle at rates of up to 3,500 pounds per hour.

Estimated time frame based on refrigerant type and condition.


Identify System Issues & Complete Repairs

Our recovery and recycling system is operated by highly trained, highly skilled, EPA certified refrigeration mechanics who know how to identify system issues. This means that not only can ChillCo recover and recycle your system refrigerant, while on-site, we can identify system operational issues that caused our services to be procured, make recommendations for repair, and make those repairs as time allows. Rest assured ChillCo will prioritize action items by those repairs needed immediately, and those that can wait until a more suitable time for our customer.
