Compressed air dryers and the environment

Is your compressed air dryer reaching the end of its useful life?

R22 Phase Out

Thorite Compressed air dryers and the environmentAre you prepared for the new F-Gas regulations?

Should your current dryer break down there could be a serious impact on your production, business or environment.

What are your obligations?

  • If the dryer uses HCFC R22 gas, only recycled product is available now and it is rapidly running out!
  • The use of virgin R22 gas* was banned from 01/01/2010
  • There is to be a complete ban on the use of recycled R22 gas* from 01/01/2015
  • Operators of HCFC refrigeration systems must take "all precautionary measures practicable" to prevent leakage
  • *From July 2011 users with refrigeration dryers with 3kg or more HCFCs must have the equipment inspected by a suitably qualified engineer every 12 months

*F-Gas regulations (re-cast of Ozone Regulation EC/1005/200G)

It's time to start planning now

This will ensure you have time to consider options, minimise costs, and budget for any investments required.

- Over 40% of all dryer installations use R22

This means that it's very likely your current dryer does too!

Contact us to find out whether it does or not.

- Even recycled R22 is no longer available

There may be no R22 available for re-gassing your dryer should you suffer a breakdown!
