Halon recovery and recycling machine
In accordance with the Montreal Protocol, the production of halon has ceased. Gielle owns a recovering and conditioning for halon (REACH) machine, conceived to efficiently recover and recycle halon in order to guarantee supply.
Gielle sells halocarbons for critical uses, including Halon 1211, Halon 1301, Halon 2402 and other halocarbon gases. We offer a variety of options to our customers, including halon banking, selling, recycling, and the purchasing of 1211 and 1301 halon in bulk.
Depending on the agent and application, these gases are laboratory-certified to strict industry specifications such as ASTM D 5632, ASTM D 6064, ISO 7201, ARI-700 and NFPA 2001.
Gielle is your domestic and international full service halon and clean agent specialist. We buy, sell and service all types and sizes of halons.

Enclosure / Room Integrity Testing
The new ISO standard 14520 and NFPA 2001 include a multipoint door fan test as means of determining retention period.
Gielle can carry out the door fan test, in conformance with NFPA 2001 and ISO 14520, for engine rooms, computer rooms, tape storage, battery and UPS rooms, communications rooms, control rooms, turbine rooms protected by FM-200, Novec 1230, Inergen, Argonite and other clean agent systems
Eco-friendly fire fighting wetting agent
Liquid foam concentrate, non-toxic and biodegradable, Cold Fire® is the only patented, concentrated alcohol-resistant microbial fire fighting agent on the market today. Once the fire is out or the spill is covered with finished foam, the microbes begin remediating the AFFF, hydrocarbon and alcohol wastes.
Cold Fire is designed for both class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuels. When used on class B hydrocarbon fuels, it creates an aqueous film that effectively shuts down the fire. It is U/L-162 listed and has CE approval granted under the standard EN 1568-3.
