Globally, most modern temperature controlled refrigerated transport relies on HFC refrigerants.
The HFOs and HCFOs are becoming the refrigerants of choice for large chillers due to their ultra-low GWPs, energy efficiency, and low or non-flammability. HCFO-1233zd(E) centrifugal chillers from 3 different manufacturers have received environment awards around the world for their class leading performance using this non-flammable refrigerant with GWP of 1. Its boiling point of […]
Increased adoption of heat pumps will help to decarbonise heating. The majority of heat pumps use fluorinated hydrocarbons with R-410A being most widely used currently, but lower GWP HFC-32, HFO/HFC blends and HFOs all have an important role to play in the wider adoption of heat pumps. This item reports on R-32, R-454C and R-1234ze(E) […]
A German supermarket has just been renovated and made the choice of an R-455A ice-water loop for its medium temperature refrigeration system. Previously tried CO2 systems had encountered pressure surges problems which caused damages and were more expensive then R-455A (GWP of 150 and mildly flammable A2L classification). Seven display cases are cooled independently by […]
