Wolseley Climate has introduced a cylinder manager, in partnership with Gas-Trak Online, designed to help contractors improve the management of refrigerant cylinders and provide full F-Gas reporting.
Available free to Wolseley Climate customers, the app enables engineers to keep track of their cylinder fleet in real time, while identifying upcoming and current rental charges on cylinders that have passed rent-free periods.
Available on desktop and as a mobile app, the cylinder manager also allows engineers to enter refrigerant usage accurately to comply with F-Gas regulations.
The manager tracks cylinders from any supplier and those supplied by Wolseley Climate will automatically be updated when collected and returned, helping engineers to see due dates and rental costs. Engineers can also see which gasses they currently have stocks of, as well as who has each cylinder and the remaining weights in each.
Data can be added to record the use of gas on first-time installation and future maintenance. This data is stored for the required period of 5 years to comply with F-Gas regulations and can also be exported from the app for audits.
Robert Franklin, National Sales Director at Wolseley Climate, said: “The cylinder manager has already proven a great success in trials with a number of engineers, providing them with efficient, accurate and clear visibility of cylinders outstanding and a means of keeping records for F-Gas compliance.
“The manager does everything that it says on the tin and more. It’s a fantastic opportunity to help our air conditioning and refrigeration engineers to easily monitor their cylinder fleet anytime, anywhere.”
The cylinder manager is free for all Wolseley Climate customers and is accessible to download from the App Store and Google Play Store. Once customers have downloaded the app, they should email firstname.lastname@example.org with their Wolseley account number, first and last name, F-Gas number and email for logging into the app, to enable registration.
