Non-flammable solutions for stationary and transport refrigeration.Opteon™ XP blends have been successfully adopted in the refrigeration industry after their introduction at the last Chillventa 2014. They offer significantly lower GWPs than the current HFCs and are classified as A1 (low toxicity, non-flammable). Thus, they are ideally suited to replace the current high-GWP products not only in new, but also in existing equipment (Retrofit) to reduce the CO2-equivalents under F-Gas regulation (EU) 517/2014.
- Opteon™ XP40 (R-449A): the Chemours flagship non-flammable (A1) replacement for R-404A refrigerant, is approved by major equipment manufacturers and has already seen widespread global adoption in its first year of commercialization. XP40 provides a 67% reduction in GWP over 404A, while improving 404A system energy efficiency up to 12% and offers an excellent direct replacement option for supermarkets that are looking for a more sustainable retrofit solution. Chemours recently announced that XP40 is on pace to be used in over 1,000 supermarkets worldwide by the end of 2016.
- Opteon™ XP10 (R-513A): Provides a GWP reduction of 56% compared to R-134a. XP10 offers an excellent capacity and efficiency match to R-134a across a range of applications, including refrigeration, air conditioning, chillers and heat pumps. A growing list of OEMs have specified Opteon™ XP10, including Trane, Smardt Chiller Group, Emerson and Bitzer. In January of this year, Johnson Controls also announced that their chiller portfolio is fully compatible with Opteon™ XP10 (R-513A) for their York centrifugal and screw chillers ranging from 125 to 6,000 tons.
- Opteon™ XP44 (R-452A): A refrigerant replacement for R-404A/R-507A. With a GWP reduction of 45% compared to R-404A, XP44 also matches the discharge temperature of R-404A/R-507A, which is very critical for low temperature hermetic systems and transport applications. Thermo King and Tecumseh have lead the way in specifying Opteon™ XP44.
