Trigon Refrigerant Group Now a Certified Reclaimer

Trigon Refrigerant Group LLC, Sarasota, FL, has become an EPA certified refrigerant reclaimer. To become a certified reclaimer, the company had to meet stringent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements.

Trigon technicians hold EPA certifications. They test refrigerant using highly-advanced on-site laboratory equipment.
