Solstice™ 1234ze is a low GWP, energy-efficient alternative to traditional refrigerants for air-cooled and water-cooled chillers in a range of applications and have already been used in supermarkets and commercial buildings.
Efficiency of Solstice™ ze is comparable to R-134a. Solstice™ 1234ze has a GWP of <1. It has low toxicity and is non-flammable at ambient temperature.
The use of Solstice™ ze in new equipment is cost-effective and fast because only minor system adaption is required to achieve results similar to medium-pressure refrigerants like R-134a. It is significantly safer in use than other very low GWP alternatives which are either extremely flammable or toxic.
ASHRAE CLASS: A2L
