Drew Ameroid Marine Forms CFC Conversion Alliance With York Marine Systems

Drew Ameroid Marine, based in Boonton, N.J., and York Marine Systems, headquartered in York, Pa., entered into an alliance to provide shipboard CFC refrigerant conversion, as well as repair and maintenance service to commercial marine customers worldwide.

Drew Ameroid Marine's product line includes welding and refrigerant products, specialty chemicals and sealing products. York Marine Systems is a manufacturer and supplier of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment to the marine industry.

The initial focus of the joint effort is the conversion of shipboard refrigeration and air-conditioning systems presently using CFCs to one of the leading alternative refrigerants, such as HFC-134a. CFCs are chlorofluorocarbons linked to ozone depletion. HFC-134a, favored by many fleet owners and operators, is a hydrofluorocarbon which contains no chlorine atom; it therefore has zero potential to deplete stratospheric ozone. The Drew/York alliance extends to all major brands of air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment, including York, Carrier, Sabroe and Stal.
