Diversified Pure Chem (PURECHEM), a full-service refrigerant reclamation company in North America, has opened a new HUB facility in Jacksonville, Florida, to offer small cylinder exchange and refrigerant buyback services.
Through the local HUB facilities, PURECHEM employees collect 30-pound and 50-pound cylinders of recovered refrigerant, such as R-22, directly from other local HVACR businesses. PURECHEM drivers make routine stops at participating locations to exchange filled cylinders with clean cylinders. Once collected refrigerant is analyzed, PURECHEM pays the business for the value of their recovered gases and supplies EPA documentation.
"As an EPA-certified reclaimer, our goal is to offer HVACR and industrial businesses solutions that are both environmentally friendly and profitable for their businesses," said Dave Couchot, General Manager of PURECHEM. "We're expanding due to considerable demand from local contractors. Our goal is to bring a simple and straightforward program with reduced liability, which hopefully offers relief to the market from brokers or similar individuals using dishonest tactics to take advantage of HVACR businesses."
With the new facility, PURECHEM now has 13 local HUBs throughout the country, including in: California, Arizona, Texas, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and New Jersey.
