Italian based Galileo TP Process Equipment S.r.l. and its North America branch (GTP Inc.) have delivered the 12th hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerant charging system to the US for the domestic, commercial and medical refrigeration sectors. The company offers a complete range of HC equipment including: charging systems, complete safety management systems, ultrasonic welders, leak detection systems, evacuation systems and more.

In the recent revision of the EPA’s venting rule which exempts SNAP approved hydrocarbon
refrigerants including isobutane (R600a), R441A and propane (R290) used as substitutes in domestic and stand-alone retail refrigeration, Galileo TP has strengthened its North American operation scheduling further delivery, installation and training of its specialty HC equipment and charging stations across North America.

After installing over 600 HC systems everywhere else in the world, we are pleased to see that North America is now ready for this inevitable transition. Galileo TP has been present in the US market for decades, and will soon celebrate the 10 year anniversary of its Greenville (SC) direct operations. Our efforts and investment to properly attend to the North American market have been rewarded; we will continue to support our customers in the best possible way,” said Giovanni Gonfiantini, CEO at Galileo TP.

Galileo TP and its North American team continue to see weekly interest with hydrocarbons and CO2 among the North American HVAC&R manufactures,” said Craig Roy, North America Manager. “The company’s North America team spends much of its time and resources in guiding customers through this industry change to assure their compliance and position among the best manufacturers."
As Galileo TP Process Equipment S.r.l. has been a market leader globally for decades in this segment providing equipment suitable for HCs and CO2, the company’s North American office is following suit,” said Roy.
