Todays announcement that the EU parties have agreed on the phase down of HFCs and equipment bans is a significant triumph for the environment and the fight against climate change.
Announcement welcome at industry level
“The announcement is very welcome from our perspective” says RAC Cooling Awards nominated Mark Coppack who has driven for the adoption of “traceability” systems over the past 5 years. “There has been significant resistance to implementing traceability systems and a large amount of this was due in part to uncertainty relating to the future of F Gas legislation. With a clearer legislative picture I am certain that the HAVC sector can now commit to a program of innovation and self regulation that will lead to a better environment for all”
HVAC is a responsible sector with a desire to innovate
The HVAC sector is amongst the most innovative industrial sectors and invests many billions in new technology. It has had a harder time than most trying to react to EU announcements and shifting goal posts. A time of settled clear understanding is bound to lead to innovation as companies can determine a clear time frame and sane strategies.

Got that…. great! OK that’s how easy it is to let all areas of your business recover information form your bottles. That’s right, no more filling in paperwork when you return mixed recovery bottles, simply scan the code and print the page or even email it direct to the supplier to print .. or get them to scan it at the counter and let them print it!
The barcode you have just scanned is printed by RP F-Gas software, which allows you to manage all your bottles and more importantly the gas decanted and recovered to and from your bottles.
More information on hand, less error and less theft of gas by employee’s who fancy doing a moonlight job with your van at the weekend.
If the bottle is returned empty but RP F-Gas says its still half full, then it isn’t rocket science to know that gas has gone astray.
RP F-Gas software gives the engineer and manager all the tools he needs to streamline the test process and stay compliant with F Gas regulations
