R290 in 370g containers and R600a in 420g containers is available from Pendle Refrigeration Wholesale Ltd.

PRTC (Pendle's sister company) provides the City and Guilds 6187-21 qualification for Hydrocarbon Refrigerants which is suited to those already holding a current F-Gas qualification. This also includes the safe handling of A2L and A3 flammable gases.

The use of hydrocarbon and A2L refrigerants has been increasing steadily in recent years as there is an ever growing demand to use refrigerants with a lower GWP. Although not a mandatory requirement yet, with their different properties and, in some cases, substantially increased flammability, understanding their safe handling can be just as important as being qualified to handle the 'F Gas' refrigerants.

A course which can be held on site (with groups of engineers and suitable facilities) or at one of the regular scheduled courses at it is run as a one day session for experienced engineers ideally already holding an up to date 'F Gas' qualification. The presentation is followed by both practical and theoretical assessments to City and Guilds' requirements and successful delegates will achieve their City and Guilds 6187-21 certificate.

Although not a mandatory qualification to purchase and use these refrigerants, it is an ideal opportunity to learn how to handle them safely and something we would strongly recommend.
