HFO Refrigerants

HFO (HydroFluoroOlefin) refrigerants are the fourth generation of refrigerants to be developed and introduced to the market. 

 

They are an alternative refrigerant with low GWP values that reduce environmental impact while offering energy efficiency.



R-1233zd

R-1233zd is a fluorinated gas from the HFO family.
 

This product has a very low GWP and low pressure. 
 

It is suitable for new industrial air conditioning applications and the cooling of buildings where cooling water or intermediate fluids are used in large systems with centrifugal compressors (one or more stages) where R-123 may have been used in the past.
