HYDROCARBONS - Learn more, get qualified!


A reminder that the City and Guilds 6187-21 qualification for Hydrocarbon Refrigerants is available from PRTC as a one day course for experienced engineers.

R290 in 370g containers and R600a in 420g containers are available from our sister company, Pendle Refrigeration Wholesale Ltd.

The use of hydrocarbon refrigerants has grown over recent years and is likely to increase further. Working with such substances can be worrying if you aren't familiar with them but we can provide training to those already working with the common refrigerants. Historically, refrigerant handling qualifications have included hydrocarbons - but not any more! In response to this City and Guilds introduced their 6187-21 qualification which we have been running regularly now for a number of years.

Run as a one day session for experienced engineers a presentation is followed by both practical and theoretical assessments to City and Guilds' requirements. Although not mandatory - at the moment - it is an ideal opportunity to learn more about this increasingly popular range of refrigerants and gain a recognised City and Guilds qualification at the same time.

While all candidates for the one day course will be experienced engineers who will usually already hold a valid 'F Gas' qualification longer courses are also available for anyone less experienced.

Further information on all our courses can be found in the course synopses on the left hand side of the website or please telephone us. Information on purchasing hydrocarbons can be obtained from Pendle Refrigeration and full contact details for both companies are shown below or just follow the links:
