Refrigerant Cylinder & Container Tracking

Complete product stewardship tracking
from manufacturers to distributors to end users.

What is it?

TrackAbout is a cloud-based system that can track reusable refrigerant cylinders through their life cycle. It uses barcodes and smartphones to track the location and history of your cylinders and tonners.

How does it work?

The high-level steps are:

  1. Put barcode labels on to containers
  2. Scan barcodes using a TrackAbout mobile app when you drop off a cylinder or tonner
  3. Manage containers  from a browser

Barcodes

The most common tag for tracking used by customers are simple, rugged barcodes.

RFID tags are also supported, but are less commonly used.

Full Life-Cyle Tracking

TrackAbout’s system can collect an unlimited number of custom fields and as many scanning points as needed. This allows for full-life cycle of refrigerant containers.

Integrate with ERP

TrackAbout has multiple options for integrating with ERP systems.

Compliance with California Prop #65

California Proposition 65 requires businesses to release the amount of chemicals that the state classifies as “harmful” to their customers. With TrackAbout, users are able to record which cylinders are filled with chemicals that fall under California Prop 65’s chemical list.

Scan Using Mobile App

    • GPS position on a map
    • Timestamp
