Recharge & Recertification of Fire Suppression System Bottles

We can recharge leaking or discharged system bottles with Halon 1301, HFC-227ea, HFC-125, and NOVEC 1230™ in our ISO 9001-Certified facility.

Coming in 2022: CO₂ Filling Capabilities. Call for more info!

The Halon and clean agents used to recharge system bottles meet or exceed industry standards. Each shipment is accompanied by a Certificate of Analysis to ensure the quality of material used in each fire suppression system bottle.

A-Gas has an extensive inventory of most manufacturers’ cylinders, in stock, to assist our customers with their various needs and emergency recharges. To reduce customer downtime and save money, with our Simple Swap program, we can fill a cylinder from this inventory and ship it as a “swap-in” replacement for leaking or discharged cylinders. We then arrange to pick up the empty or leaking cylinder as a “swap-out” at no extra charge.

Our team provides quick quotes that have the entire process broken down by line item. This includes:

  • The price for the agent
  • The valve rebuild
  • The cylinder recertification
  • Freight

Quick quotes can also inform a customer of the in-stock availability of the cylinder they need and the timeframe of the process once the order is received.

Clean Agent Recharges

Halon Worldwide

Buy & Sell Fire Protection

It is our mission to provide great value to our fire protection customers by delivering exceptional products, services, and environmentally responsible solutions on a nationwide basis.

We make buying and selling Halon and clean agent alternatives easy—our team of experts is available to answer any questions you may have.

When the decision is made to sell decommissioned Halon or clean agents to A-Gas, the seller is accomplishing two important things:

  1. The environment is protected from a potentially costly, accidental discharge of ODS.
  2. The seller gets to pocket the financial benefit of safely disposing of an asset that could become a liability.

A-Gas provides sellers with step-by-step directions and assistance:

  • All necessary shipping paperwork is pre-prepared
  • A-Gas pays all the freight costs
  • Sellers are instructed to secure the cylinders or extinguishers to a pallet and apply the shipping labels we provide
  • Contact us and we will schedule the pick-up (anywhere in the US)
  • If unable to secure the cylinders/extinguishers to a pallet, one of our team members will help with other available solutions

Once a seller’s agent is received at our Bowling Green, Ohio location, it is reclaimed and recertified for "critical users."

Clean Agent Strategic Reserve

The A-Gas Clean Agent Strategic Reserve was established to enhance customer service by offering the ability to reduce or eliminate downtime with a quick recharge turnaround.

Fire suppression system discharges happen due to fire or accidental discharges due to human error or system malfunction. The purpose of the Clean Agent Strategic Reserve service is to be prepared for any situation.

The Strategic Reserve program allows us to supply fully refurbished and recharged system bottles quickly and cost-effectively. The program’s bottles are painted and set aside at our Bowling Green, Ohio facility to be utilized for immediate recharge should there be an emergency or accidental discharge.

A-Gas has an inventory of over 2,000 cylinders that are available for this program. We have a complete DOT regulated cylinder refurbishment center in Bowling Green to provide recertified and painted cylinders that look brand new.

Our Strategic Reserve program is also available to purchase recycled, recertified bulk products to be banked for future needs. Banking purchased agents when the prices are market steady protects against short-term market shortages and unexpected price increases. These agents can be used in conjunction with reserved system bottles for quick recharges or bulk product shipments.
