    Question

    Hi Gents ! I need to add a couple of more refrigerant recovery machines to my growing business. I would like some input on what you guys are using and are having good luck with. Price is also always a big buying incentive.
    I have been informed that the NRP GS2000 is an excellent model. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in
    advance.

    What machines are you already using (going on your words "add a couple of more refrigerant recovery machines")?

    I purchased an Inficon Vortex unit for my employer and it's held up all right. It doesn't get the daily pounding it might otherwise get riding in a service truck all day long, since I'm on site all day. And I try to keep my equipment running well enough so that I rarely need to use the machine.

    • Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
    • HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.

    The Infinicon Vortex is great. I have one on my service truck, it performs well and handles the rigor of daily use. I personaly own a Promax HP410 for my own personal use. It is also a good machine. Based on the performance of my Promax I've been kicking around the idea of getting a Promax ProVax. It is a recovery machine and vac pump all in one unit. It looks pretty decent. 6 cfm pump. I haven't found the recovery rates lised yet on the recovery side.
