Rapid Recovery helps Asda retrofit


18 July 2018
A-Gas Rapid Recovery played a key role in a nationwide refrigerant retrofit involving 110 convenience stores owned by Asda.

Operating at night 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 minimum disruption.
The timescale presented a challenge and most on nights four separate recovery teams were working on two refrigeration packs at stores in different parts of the country. More than 13,000 kgs of R404A was removed, along with more than 3500 kgs of R407A, and the high GWP gases were replaced by non-flammable HFO blend R448A (Solstice N40).
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.”
Rapid Recovery has a network of recovery vehicles and engineers in place to give refrigeration contractors national coverage and provides recovery services to a range of industries, including refrigeration, HVAC, demolition, and marine.
