R-22 PHASE OUT: 

ARE YOU READY?

OPTION 3: 
REPLACE OR UPGRADE TO A NEW SYSTEM

• Projected operating cost
• Projected maintenance costs
• Environmental impact
• Local and national regulations
• Disruption of current usage and production
• Required refrigeration performance
• Operating season
• Future expansion plans
• Incentives available to offset capital expenditure
• Automation and building integration

THE CIMCO STORY:
HELPING YOU KEEP YOUR COOL FOR OVER 100 YEARS

Recognizing that newly available refrigeration equipment could provide businesses with a better alternative to natural ice, Tom Shipley founded The Canadian Ice Machine Company in 1913 and began servicing the refrigeration needs of Canadians. 

Since then, the technology has improved, the name has been shortened, but our core principles remain the same: reliable, cost-effective solutions and unbeatable customer service. It’s these principles that have driven our success and made us the first choice of world-class organizations across Canada and the United States, including the NHL. 

Today, we continue to develop industry-leading technology and deliver outstanding service to provide the most effcient and reliable heating and cooling systems available.

Finding the right answer starts with asking the right questions.  So before you finalize your R-22 phase out plan, use the chart below to help gauge some important system factors and determine which strategy is the best fit for your facility.

WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS?
START BY CHOOSING THE MOST APPROPRIATE DESCRIPTION

OPTION 1: 
RETAIN AND MANAGE EXISTING R-22 SYSTEM

• Install multipoint leak detector to measure refrigerant release from floats, seals, oil cooler, compressors & relief lines
• Leak detector calibrations semi annually
• Ensure that all relief valves have a rupture disc to prevent weeping
• Daily/weekly/monthly plant inspection with hand held leak detector to find leaks
• Vibration analysis at manufacturer’s recommended intervals
• Change any relief valves, shaft seals that have age and may be outdated
• Maintain a 25% surplus of refrigerant
• Regular inspections by certified refrigeration mechanics

OPTION 2: 
RETROFIT WITH A DROP IN REFRIGERANT

• Determine system type and plant conditions
• Review system capacity and load requirements
• Review material compatibility and cooling capacity
• Review refrigerant glide limitations
• Determine future oil and filter dryer requirements
• Provide recommended refrigerant conversion requirements
• Review and determine the TX valve position adjustment and/or replacement to verify valve size and recommend adjustments
• Identify worn or damaged components
• Determine new refrigeration capacity, expected runtimes, and energy usage
• Assess whether new refrigerant might be a target of current future phase-outs (high GWP)

Replacing a refrigeration system can be complicated and several factors need to be considered as part of the planning process.  When evaluating a new system, here are the things you should consider to avoid surprises:  

Based on your score, you may want to consider modifying your system with a drop in refrigerant. The drop in option needs to be carefully considered and it is recommended to do a full engineering study. An engineering study will help determine the complexity, risk, and cost. The following should be considered:

Based on your score, it is reasonable that you would implement an enhanced maintenance and leak detection program. This approach is most effective when the existing program is reviewed with a maintenance and leak prevention focus on high risk components where leaks might occur.
