LARGE BRITISH SUPERMARKET CHAIN CONVERTING 1200 STORES REFRIGERATION TO LOWER GWP R-448A

07.06.2017

A large British supermarket chain has selected R-448A for the conversion of the presently used R-404A commercial refrigeration systems of more than 1,200 of its stores across the UK.

R-448A (blend of HFC-32/HFC-125/HFC-134a/HFO-1234yf/HFO-1234zeE, 26/26 /21/20/7 % weight) has a GWP of 1,386, instead of 3,922 for R-404A.

It is nonflammable and was meeting customers’ key criteria including energy efficiency, system performance and maintenance.
