UK MANUFACTURER SELECTS A NEW LOW GWP SUBSTITUTE FOR R-404A

01.04.2015

In anticipation of the F-Gas Regulation 517 (2014) which will ban HFCs with a GWP higher than 2,500 by 2020 in stationary refrigeration equipment, new blends having a lower GWP alternative to R-404A (GWP of 3,922) continue to be introduced for specific applications.

R-448A (blend of HFC-32/HFC-125/HFC-134a/HFO-1234yf/HFO-1234zeE, 26/26/21/20/7 % weight – GWP of 1,386) has recently been selected by a British equipment manufacturer, for a range of freezer and blast chiller products, both delivering lower environmental impact and improved energy efficiency.
