In line with EC regulations, the use of virgin HCFCs will be banned from January 1, 2010 and the ban will be extended to recycled HCFCs by 2015.

Amid concerns that there may be a shortage of recycled HCFCs during this period, Walter Meier is urging end users with HCFC chillers to get in contact and benefit from a 'no-obligation' assessment of their chiller plant, with the aim of meeting their phase out concerns and obligations under the F-Gas Regulations.

“Owners of chillers using HCFC refrigerants such as R22 or R123 will need to decide very soon whether they are going to replace those chillers or retrofit an alternative refrigerant,” said Walter Meier managing director Mike Slattery.

He added: “This is a complex area that will depend on many parameters – and will benefit from our specialist knowledge of supplying, upgrading and maintaining chillers. And because we offer all of these services we can provide impartial advice with no hidden agenda'.

He added 'If building operators leave this decision too long they are in danger of making a hasty, and possibly inappropriate decision that doesn’t deliver best value to their organisation and could lead to unplanned capital expenditure'.
