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.
