A-Gas Expands Local Service Offerings in the Greater Portland, OR Area & Southwest Washington

Rapid Exchange® Offers Free Cylinder Replacement for Used Refrigerants

August 15, 2023 | A-Gas, a world leader in environmentally responsible lifecycle refrigerant management, announces an expansion of its service offerings in the Greater Portland, Oregon area, also supporting customers in Southwest Washington. This expansion will provide the local HVACR communities with quick and easy refrigerant gas cylinder swaps through A-Gas’ Rapid Exchange® program.

“Across the country, contractors rely on Rapid Exchange for free, streamlined refrigerant exchange,” says Ken Smith, Business Development Leader in Portland. “Now, the Portland and Southwest Washington HVACR communities can utilize Rapid Exchange to swap recovered cylinders for free new cylinders—all while generating additional revenue with our buyback program.”

A-Gas Rapid Recovery® and Rapid Exchange locations offer localized services to support businesses of all sizes. Both Rapid Exchange and Rapid Recovery enable safe and effective recovery and reclamation, making refrigerant recovery easy for any business that utilizes refrigerants. These processes contribute to the circular economy by ensuring continued use of existing but vital resources.

In addition, these services provide small and medium HVACR businesses with the opportunity to bring in new revenue for the refrigerant gases they safely recover. This not only incentivizes safe recovery practices but also strengthens local economies. The services also support larger businesses, including grocery stores, construction and demolition, commercial real estate, and banks.

“We are thrilled to offer Portland and Southwest Washington HVACR communities these essential services to support their business operations. With our Rapid Exchange and Rapid Recovery services in Portland, we are helping contractors incorporate sustainable business practices in their day-to-day operations,” said Bob Collins, Regional Team Leader.

As a modern refrigerant reclaimer, A-Gas is focused on environmental stewardship through the lifecycle management of refrigerant gases. A-Gas manages the full lifecycle of refrigerants, from recovery to reclamation and re-entry into the market through refrigerant sales—contributing to the circular economy. A-Gas also offers refrigerant destruction services for when gases can no longer be reclaimed at the end of their useful life. A-Gas employs our proprietary PyroPlas® technology, which is a United Nations-approved, TEAP-certified technology that delivers the industry’s highest guaranteed destruction efficiency (99.9999%).
