View Full Version : Hydrocarbons

Hi, I am very new to refrigeration, I am trying hard to sustain my work base and as a way of doing that I have been off to college, done the required 2 year day release, sat the C&G exams and Fgas, added the HC course on, and am now looking to get involved in hopefully profitable work. I hope I have identified Hydrocarbons as an expanding area of opportunity and whilst I prefer commercial, I think I may be obliged to first cut my teeth on domestics.

I recently came across a product by Vulkan Lockring, and it seems to me to be an expensive but very Advantageous system. Given the type and size of product I may be working on, I would be extremely grateful if any of you experienced gentlemen would recommend a basic kit to hold, money is a bit tight given the last two years, so I need to tread a cautious line, but do not want to go out ill equipped. Not having the luxury of an employer I don't have the corporate purse to call on.

Kindest Regards, and many thanks in advance,
