Having the right tools for the job is a key difference in having a manageable or frustrating day at the factory. The transfer of refrigerants is no different; having the right transfer technologies is vital to avoiding a frustrating workday.
Refrigerants are specialty liquefied gases – usually a substance or mixture most commonly consisting of fluorocarbons – used in a refrigeration cycle that undergoes a phase transition from a liquid to a gas and back again. Refrigerants are produced at dedicated manufacturing facilities before they are transferred by railcar, truck, or container cylinder for commercial and residential use. Refrigerants can be constructed via many different recipes featuring many different chemistries. As such, they require pumping and compressing technologies compatible with the wide array of chemicals used in continuous-duty refrigerant manufacturing operations. Blackmer® offers refrigerant pumping solutions in the form of our sliding vane pumps and regenerative turbine pumps. Additionally, our reciprocating gas compressor technology can be used for vessel transfer of refrigerants and recover valuable refrigerant vapors preventing harmful emissions.
With requirements for explosion-proof and changing refrigerant regulations, the broad technology portfolio that Blackmer offers is a vital tool in maintaining compliance, solving challenging refrigerant transfer applications and having a manageable day at the factory.
