Corpus Christi Army Depot
Freon are ozone depleting chemicals that can not be vented into the atmosphere, and will no longer be produced for commercial sale in the United States after 1995. Portable units are used to pump down refrigeration systems and recover the Freon. The Freon is then recycled in three reclaim units (purchased from National Refrigeration Products of Brighton, NJ and Promax Industries of Denver, CO) that are dedicated to recycle product streams used at the facility (R-12, R-22, R-502, R-500 and R-115 capability).
The depot recycles 400 pounds of Freon per year.
