RE: Use and recovery of Refrigerants


R-134a is not an ozone depleting substance (ODS); it does not contain any chlorine.  It is in fact a replacement for R-12, that is an ODS. Check the www.epa.gov/ozone  site for more facts on acceptable substitutes for ODSs including CFCs.  Navigate to the Alternatives / SNAP page.

P2 Techrs - any alternatives to aerosol cans with ozone-depleting chemicals
for blowing dust off computer equipment?  The refrigerant in question is
R-134A.  See below for scenriodetails - thanks!
Kim - could you research?  Please advise...

	Interesting question.  I thought refrigerants (that is, all ozone
depleting chemicals) were removed from all aerosol cans.  


	How about telling them to do the right P2 thing and find a product
that does not contain refrigerants?


	Debby – do you know of any products?  Has the issue ever been
mentioned as a P2 opportunity?

	I just received a call from Orange County Schools. A question came up
that they are trying to answer for their employees.


	They are required to recover Refrigerants from equipment, vehicles,
etc.; however, the spray cans for blowing dust off of computer equipment and
keyboards consists of exactly the same refrigerant they are supposed to be


	The employees want to know why the have to recover refrigerant when
they can spray it to their hearts content at the computers?


	Do you know anyone who can answer this question for them?


	Thank you,


	John White
