Some Information That Can Help You
You'll need a refrigerant recovery machine and recovery cylinders.
A refrigerant identifier is optional, but it will enable you to test the purities of the refrigerants you recover (collect).
Useful hand tools are straight wrenches and refrigerant recovery pliers.
Contact the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute and Underwriters Laboratories for lists of certified equipment.
Recovery cylinders are available in a variety of sizes, and the fifty-pound tanks are often used by technicians due to their portability and refrigerant-containing capacity.
Once you determine which refrigerants you'll be recovering, you can search online for recovery machines and refrigerant identifiers that will process those refrigerants.
Recovery cylinders can be purchased from major cylinder manufacturers or local heating, ventilation and air conditioning supply houses. Cylinder manufacturers may require a credit application for the purchase of tanks.
The hand tools can be purchased locally or online.
You'll also have to complete an approved technician certification program that's been authorized by the US EPA. The type(s) of equipment you'll be working on will determine the type of certification you'll need. You can learn about the certifications and programs at the EPA's website, www.epa.gov.
