Actrol branches are supplied from ARP, a purpose built industrial gas storage and packaging facility located in Truganina in Melbourne’s western suburbs. ARP was commissioned in August 2010 with more than 250,000kg of bulk refrigerant storage capacity to provide surety of supply to Actrol customers. Every cylinder in the Actrol cylinder circuit has a unique identification number, and the filling process is automated to ensure only the correct refrigerant type and quantity is filled into each cylinder.
As a founding member of Australia’s product stewardship scheme operated by “Refrigerant Reclaim Australia” Actrol own and provide a dedicated circuit of Refrigerant Reclaim cylinders to customers so used refrigerants can be safely sent for destruction. ARP is equipped to reclaim these refrigerants and transfer them into larger cylinders in readiness for Refrigerant Reclaim Australia.
In February 2015 ARP commissioned new bulk nitrogen storage and filling systems to provide nitrogen to Actrol customers. Actrol purchased many thousands of D and E size high pressure nitrogen cylinders to ensure plentiful supplies of nitrogen are always available at all its branches. The new D and E size cylinders are equipped with easy to use cylinder valves and industry leading valve guards to better protect the cylinder valve during transport and make cylinder handling easier for its customers. As a major component of this service, ARP continues to invest in technology to meet the requirements of the HVAC & R industries, helping to ensure Actrol can easily service the evolving needs of their customers.
