Low GWP Opteon® refrigerants available from Climalife UKClimalife UK
Climalife UK, in partnership with Chemours (formerly known as DuPont) are pleased to be stocking the new Low GWP Opteon® range of refrigerants – balancing performance, environmental sustainability, safety and cost.
Opteon® XP40 (R-449A), XP44 (R-452A) and XP10 (R-513A), are all non-flammable hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) based refrigerants with much lower GWP values than the refrigerants for which they can be used to replace. With F-Gas regulations impacting on the future of high GWP refrigerants, the Opteon® range offers a ready solution; with good energy efficiencies and improved environmental properties to some of the more traditional refrigerants.
Opteon® XP40 (R-449A), is designed to replace R-404A and R-507 in direct expansion low and medium temperature commercial and industrial applications. With a GWP of 1397, almost a third of R-404A, it is already being selected for use. Opteon® XP10 (R-513A) with a GWP of 631, over half that of R-134a, has been developed for medium temperature commercial, industrial and chiller applications. Whilst Opteon® XP44 (R-452A) is seeing a significant uptake in transport refrigeration applications as a R-404A replacement with the same discharge temperatures. Its GWP is nearly half that of R-404A. With all three products being non-flammable they are suitable for both new systems and the retrofit of existing systems. Compressor manufacturers have already approved these refrigerants for some of their range and selection software is available.
Climalife have the Opteon® range in stock in a range of cylinder sizes with quantities available to meet the growing demand for these low GWP refrigerants. For more details on the range and their use in specific applications, contact Climalife UK on 0117 980 2520.
