    Looking for R-12 from Chillers

    I am in search of a decent amount of R-12, preferably that has been reclaimed from a large scale Chiller that has been decommissioned. Anyone have any thoughts on how I should go about this search?

    Call the large refrigerant recyclers like Hudson. Any refrigerant recovered from a decommissioned chiller has to be reclaimed by a licensed reclaimer. In other words, if a contractor recovers refrigerant from a chiller that refrigerant can only be used by the owner of the chiller from which it was recovered. But you already knew that.

    From a synopsis of Section 608 of The Clean Air Act: "RECLAMATION-Before recovered refrigerant can change ownership, it must be reclaimed to virgin specifications by a reclaimer that meets EPA certification requirements."

    I believe Refron is big into buying refrigerants, try them as well?

    Oops, they were bought out by Airgas, try Airgas.

    If it is for a chiller why dont convert it to R134. Did alot of these and only lost about 10-15% cap.
