Assuring that all refrigerant is recovered and that all the cylinders are rendered useless then recycling the metal.
Recovery equipment that relies upon the compressor in the appliance and/or the pressure of the refrigerant in the appliance would be considered:
What is the strongest evidence that CFC's are in the stratosphere?
Measurement of CFC's in air samples from the stratosphere
Which of the following CFC or HCFC refrigerant releases is considered a violation of the prohibition on venting:

EPA may require technicians to demonstrate their ability to perform proper procedures for recovering and/or recycling refrigerant. Failure to demonstrate or failure to properly use the equipment may result in:
Revocation of the technician's certification
EPA regulations require the installation of a service aperture or process stub on all appliances using a class I or class II substance as a refrigerant. The main purpose of this requirement is to make it easier to:
Recover refrigerant
Which of the following is a "high-pressure refrigerant” under EPA's refrigerant recycling regulations:

The term used to describe the fact that a refrigerant blend has a range of boiling or condensing points at a constant temperature is:
Temperature glide
Vacuum line (hoses) should be:
Equal to or larger than pump intake connection
Which of the following is a "low-pressure refrigerant” under EPA's refrigerant recycling regulations:
Ozone depletion potential, or "ODP”, is:
A measurement of CFCs' and HCFCs' ability to destroy ozone
All recovery equipment now manufactured is required to have
An EPA approved certification label

Hydrogen, chlorine, fluorine and carbon
When pressurizing a refrigeration system with nitrogen, what rule should you always follow?
Charge through a pressure regulator
Blended refrigerants leak from a system:
In uneven amounts due to different vapor pressures
For accurate readings during evacuation the system vacuum gauge should be connected:
As far from the vacuum pump as possible
Which of the following is not an approved technique of system cleanup after a burnout?
Flushing with liquid refrigerant to clean field tubing
Equipment covered by EPA regulations include:
All air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment containing and using CFC and HCFC refrigerants
The synthetic lubricant presently used with ternary blends containing HCFCs is:
An example of a CFC refrigerant is:
The piping connection to the vacuum pump should be:
As short in length and as large in diameter as possible
When recovering refrigerant, it is important not to mix different refrigerants in the same container because:
The mixture may be impossible to reclaim
Which of the following gases help form the earth's protective shield?
Stratospheric Ozone
It is illegal to:
Knowingly release CFC or HCFC refrigerants and their substitutes during the service,maintenance, repair or disposal of appliances, with the exceptiion of de minimis releases
What characteristic(s) of CFCs make them more likely to reach the stratosphere than most other compounds containing chlorine?
CFCs neither dissolve in water nor break down into compounds that dissolve in water, so they do not rain out of the atmosphere
Under the "safe disposal requirements”, who is responsible for the ensuring that refrigerant has been removed from household refrigerators before they are disposed of?
The final person in the disposal chain
Which of the following human health effects could result from an increase in ultraviolet radiation?
An increase in the number of cataracts

Liquid refrigerant between service valves
The reason for dehydrating a refrigeration system is:
To remove water and water vapor
Which type of refrigerant is the most harmful to stratospheric ozone?
