Rapid Recovery instrumental in nationwide Asda retrofit

A-Gas Rapid Recovery played a key role in a recent large-scale refrigerant retrofit involving 110 convenience stores nationwide owned by Asda.

Operating at night to a tight schedule over a six-week period at the former Netto stores, Rapid Recovery worked in partnership with City Building Engineering Services and wholesaler, FSW, to complete the major refurbishment job on time and with the minimum of disruption.

The time-scale presented a challenge and, for most nights during the contract, four separate recovery teams were working on two refrigeration packs at stores in different parts of the country. Large quantities of the high global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants R404A (more than 13,000kg) and R407A (more than 3,500kg) were removed.

A-Gas Rapid Recovery business development manager, Jake Short, said: “This was a big project for us and we are pleased it has been a success. Working with us to remove the refrigerant and replace with a low GWP alternative allowed City Building Engineering Services to get on with other tasks associated with a major retrofit of this kind.”

The high GWP gases were replaced by R448A (Solstice N40), a non-flammable HFO blend used as a replacement for R404A, R407A and R22 in low and medium temperature refrigeration applications.

Rapid Recovery is a quick and easy way to recover refrigerant. The company has a network of recovery vehicles and engineers in place to give refrigeration contractors national coverage, and this is available to go on-site at short notice to tackle jobs of all sizes.

A-Gas Rapid Recovery provides recovery services to a wide range of industries, including refrigeration, HVAC, demolition, and marine. The Rapid Recovery team will take care of all aspects of the work from start to finish, including hazardous waste documentation and job site reporting.
