Australian Refrigeration Council & Nitrogen Gas The rentfreegas nitrogen kit comes with Nitrogen gas, a regulator (0-1000kpa) and a pressure rated inert gas hose, has been designed to put the necessary components together so that our customers can purchase everything they require to get started in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry. If you require a higher pressure regulator between 2000-6000kpa we have those in stock as well. Some customers are using the nitrogen for cold brew coffee applications and plastics welding, whilst other customers are using it to pressurise and pure oxygen out of food lines, or in brewing applications. More recently we have had customers purchase the kit to help them comply with the Australian Refrigeration Council requirements for their refrigerant handling licence (RHL). The ARC site states that: “Where the RHL (Refrigerant Handling Licence) holder uses dry nitrogen to test equipment to detect leaks, reference must be made to the vehicle manufacturer’s service guidelines” The Australian Refrigeration Council states that all companies or individuals that hold a Refrigerant Trading Authorisation under the Australian Government’s Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995 will have a permit condition check conducted by the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC). The Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC) also have some forms or document templates that help you as an RHL holder report on the necessary elements of the audit and maintain the proper records. We have attached a link below to the auditing requirements. Link below…. https://www.arctick.org/business-authorisation/auditing/
Nitrogen Gas, Regulator and Hose Kit Nitrogen Gas & Reg Kit We have recently put together a Nitrogen gas kit, which includes a new refillable bottle full of gas, with a new Nitrogen regulator (Type 50 valve outlet) and an inert gas hose rated to 1500kpa. The kit price also includes GST and delivery to you, so for $310 you can own a refillable gas cylinder, regulator and hose, delivered to you. In some kits we have already supplied customers, they requested for us to attach a simple low-pressure air gun with a trigger mechanism to the other end of the hose. The airgun allows customers to pulse quick or long bursts of nitrogen into bottles, bags and food containers for purging, or to fill other items and balloons quickly. Nitrogen is used in many areas and industries, some of these include, automotive for filling car tyres, food & wine preservation, welding, aviation, fire protection, refrigeration, fumigation, and for purging lines, oxygen depletion, plastics welding and much more. Once you own your own Nitrogen gas bottle, you never pay cylinder rental again. When the bottle is empty you place it back into the box it arrived in and return it through the post, then purchase your C size cylinder 'refill' from our store at http://www.rentfreegas.com.au/shop/nitrogen/ which costs $70. Then the following day we send you a full bottle. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us. Regards, www.rentfreegas.com.au Phone: 0404 677 187
Nitrogen Regulators for Refrigeration & HVAC Industry High Pressure & High Flow Regulator The single stage high flow Nitrogen regulator (below) with Side Entry and Type 50 valve outlet we supply is supported locally and designed for high-pressure testing in the Refrigeration, Heating and air conditioning market. The maximum flow rate is 150m3 per hour, the maximum inlet pressure is 30,000kPa and the maximum outlet pressure is 6000kPa. The pressure gauges comply with Australian Standards (AS 4706). The regulator comes with a safety relief valve and gauge protectors around the outsides of the pressure gauges. Discounted to $350 delivered (excludes WA) Standard Nitrogen Regulator (below) The second regulator option is 0-1000kPa single stage, side-entry regulator with dual valves and Type 50 outlet connection. The first gauge, nearest the cylinder connection, allows monitoring of the cylinder contents and the second gauge (to the right of the first gauge) on the low-pressure side, allows you to reduce the pressure to the desired working pressure for your process. Discounted to $99.00 (free delivery) Nitrogen Gas Bottles We can also supply nitrogen in high-pressure bottles (200bar) that stand 55cm tall, weigh 6kg and contain 500 litres of compressed Nitrogen to most places in Australia. The cylinders connect directly to the regulators above. Please remember that disposable nitrogen cylinders have a different connection and therefore require a different regulator. Thank you
Dry Nitrogen Tank with No rent HVAC businesses in Australia can now access Nitrogen in many forms. They can purchase industrial high-pressure cylinders from the big gas companies like BOC, they can purchase disposable nitrogen bottles from Bunnings and they can also purchase rent free Nitrogen tanks from various suppliers.Even customers in remote Australian regions have access to C size high-pressure Nitrogen bottle that comes to your door via TNT or Australia Post. The key in deciding what cylinder size, supplier or model to use (that is, whether to rent or buy a bottle) is to understand how much gas you use and then look at the volume of the each cylinder, whether disposable or high-pressure. Option 1 - If for example you only use small amounts of nitrogen (say 2m3 p.a.) then the investment in a disposable nitrogen regulator (approx. $70) and disposable cylinders (approx. $400) could be the most cost means of buying nitrogen. Please remember that these regulators for disposable cylinders, do not work with Industrial high-pressure cylinders, which have a Type 50 valve outlet. Outlets like Bunnings sell disposable nitrogen cylinders. Option 2 - If however, you use a medium (for example 2m3-10m3) amount of Nitrogen then a rent free Nitrogen bottle could be the most cost effective means of buying Nitrogen, (expected cost $550). Regulators cost between $100 for 0-1000kPa or $350 for the high pressure & high flow regulator. Option 3 - If you are a large user of Nitrogen and have service vehicles on the road, then the most cost effective way to purchase Nitrogen might be through someone like BOC where the cost of gas is cheaper, and the rental costs balance out with buying your own bottle. If you have any questions feel free to send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0404 677 187.
Buying Nitrogen Gas & Own your Cylinder - Sydney There are many suppliers of Nitrogen gas in Australia. The large gas companies, such as BOC (Linde), Coregas, Supagas & Air Liquide all supply cylinders of Nitrogen. But now you can also buy nitrogen bottles as well as gas. Rentfreegas and Speedgas will sell you a nitrogen bottle, with gas and deliver it to you, within 24-48 hours if you are in Sydney. When that cylinder is empty we come out to collect it, and swap it over, for a full bottle. This swap system works well for cafes, tyre shops, and most nitrogen users in Sydney. Purchasing a cylinder allows you to reduce the cost of paying cylinder rental, never pay rent any more! This "rent free" model helps customers save money on cylinder rental (also referred to as, container service charges). Nitrogen is an inert gas that has many applications across the air conditioning industry, food industry, beverage industry (that is, beer, wine & soft drink) and many industrial applications, including tyres, tools, paint-ball, purging and so on. This shows the versatility of Nitrogen. Our Nitrogen is food grade (99%) and our Sydney prices are below.

The rule of thumb when determining nitrogen gas bottle sizes is to buy the biggest bottle you can handle to limit the amount of refills you will need. There is now greater availability on the market for customers to choose the nitrogen gas bottle sizes they require, compared to when suppliers only offered the traditional D and G sizes. However, this increase in variety has made it confusing for some customers who do not know which nitrogen gas bottle sizes they require to ensure they can complete their jobs. Below we outline some things to consider to help you determine whether our C, D, E or G size nitrogen cylinders are best for you. How much volume do you require for your nitrogen gas bottle? The smallest nitrogen cylinder we stock here at Rent Free Gas is C, followed by D, E, and G as the largest. In comparison, a D cylinder has a volume of 1.7m3 and a weight of 20kg, whereas a G cylinder has a volume of 8.7m3 and a weight of 80kg. So if you can work out your flow mate required, or if you know the volume & pressure required of the tyre you would like to fill, the volumes of each cylinder above should help you. Shelf-life of nitrogen Since nitrogen is a non-reactive gas mixture and is usually filled in steel cylinders, your nitrogen gas bottle should, generally, have a shelf life of at least three years. This should be taken into consideration when deciding how much volume you actually require and which nitrogen gas bottle sizes you need. Do you need to move the cylinders? This is an important safety consideration as large nitrogen gas bottle sizes are difficult to handle and transport, weighing up to 80kg. If you need to travel from location to location to complete welding works, then it is important you have nitrogen gas bottle sizes that can be easily moved and will [...]
