    Halon Management  

    Halon is a liquefied, compressed gas that stops the spread of fire by chemically disrupting combustion. Halon is an effective fire suppressant for flammable liquids & electrical fires. However due to its ozone depletion potential under the Montreal Protocol, Halon is now banned except for ‘uses considered essential’ such as aircraft for the protection of crew compartments, engine nacelles, cargo bays and dry bays.

  • Building Services

    Insulation Agents 

    A-Gas is a supplier of blowing agents used in the manufacture of high quality insulation foams for the construction industry. The use of these foams helps both builders and specifiers meet the increasingly stringent energy efficiency and safety standards demanded by contractors, planning authorities and insurers.

    Refrigerant Recovery & Reclamation 

    Recovery is the removal or extraction of refrigerant from an appliance accomplished through a recovery unit. The recovered refrigerant is then transferred to an external storage vessel or container. A-Gas has a fleet of dedicated recovery cylinders with specialist valve technology, this allows engineers to retrieve waste refrigerants in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. Recovered refrigerants are transferred to our sites under document control with the necessary international and regional legislation being followed. Once on our site the refrigerant is reclaimed.  

    Reclamation is the process of taking recovered refrigerant and processing (cleaning) it through a quality controlled procedure to meet or exceed AHRI 700 purity specifications, the same purity standard used for new refrigerant.  

    Air Conditioning 

    Refrigerants are used for air conditioning in buildings and other occupied spaces to provide cooling to a comfortable ambient temperature.
