I am not an expert but I would guess not. Since the purpose of the regulation is to facilitate easier refrigerant recycling you would want to keep 134a out of a system as pure as possible. The other 20% would have to be gotten out by a distilling or chemical process to get pure 134a. However you could recycle freeze-12 that is kept in only freeze-12 container and get freeze-12 by just removing oil and not refrigerant items.

Sometimes I am not anal enough but I am much more of a pragmatist. Not an anarchist. Unfortunately we had someone butt in here and I got a little ticked at him. Apologies to the rest of the posters. I should have been a lawyer except I can't stand the B.S.
