ECOCLIM Enables Short-cycle Recycling of R404A and R452A Refrigerants

Through its subsidiary brand ECOCLIM, SNDC has been a major player in refrigerated transport, automotive HVAC systems and fluid handling for more than 35 years.

SNDC designs and assembles 100% of its products at its site near Toulouse. SNDC’s experience and expertise have helped it to develop a range of tools for short-cycle recycling of R404A and R452A refrigerants, which are commonly used by the refrigerated transport industry. After more than 3 years of research, SNDC developed these multifunctional devices to provide refrigeration technicians with an economic, environmentally tool that would save them time. SNDC’s R&D team has carried out extensive research on refrigeration operating in a wide range of conditions, such as systems with leaks, oil and humidity saturation or systems containing incondensables. This research has allowed them to develop their ECOCLIM units to receive NF E35-421 certification.


Having been recycled by either the ECOCLIM RF404 or RF452 unit, refrigerants retain their functional properties and are reinjected into the refrigeration system. These units are economic and environmentally friendly and are widely used by leaders in refrigerated transport. They also provide a rapid return on investment due to:

  • Reduced purchases of new or regenerated fluids.
  • More efficient operations.
  • Lower admin costs.
  • Greater reliability in the traceability of movements and the annual fluid balance.
  • Reduced waste management costs.
  • Improved the carbon footprint.

ECOCLIM RF404 and RF452 units automatically carry out all maintenance and troubleshooting operations and offer the operator a greater number of other benefits (reduced number of steps, automated processes, reduced risks, ergonomic design, etc.).

  • The ECOCLIM RF404 and RF452, therefore, provide unequalled convenience for the operator.
  • SNDC’s sales and technical teams will happily organise a free demonstration in your workshop.
  • Commissioning, maintenance, helpline and on-site repairs, all these services are provided by the after-sales service team.
