Correct Reclaim Cylinders for flammable refrigerant

We have recently had a couple of instances where customers have recovered flammable A2L refrigerant into the wrong type of reclaim cylinder (GMRT11).

For safety reasons, It is essential that flammable refrigerants such R-1234yf, R-32, R-454A, R-454C, R-455A, R-454B and R-452B are only recovered into the IDS red top reclaim cylinders designed for them (GMRT33).

The correct cylinders for flammable refrigerants have a painted red top and a left hand thread DIN 477 connection. They also have labelling indicating they are suitable for flammable refrigerants.

Detailed information on handling Refrigerant Recovery Cylinders is in the Climalife/IDS guidance document, available to download here.
