Low GWP A2L refrigerant R-455A selected for supermarket cold store in France
The selection of moderately flammable A2L refrigerant R-455A with a GWP of 146 for a French supermarket cold store helps ensure that the retailer meets the F-gas Regulation requirements to adopt lower GWP solutions and remain compliant with the Regulation. The objective was to select a refrigerant with high performance that is compatible with existing infrastructure. The refrigerant has high energy efficiency and performance in both high and low ambient temperatures. High temperature performance is becoming particularly important due to record-breaking temperatures in Europe this year and it became increasingly clear that reliability is of utmost importance to prevent food spoilage in high ambient temperatures. In addition, the refrigerant R-455A can be installed and serviced by routine contractors.
