RS-50 is a non-azeotropic blend of HFC refrigerants, with zero Ozone Depleting Potential, low Global Warming Potential and high energy efficiency, used in new equipment in medium and low temperatures. It is also a direct replacement (Drop-in) for R-404A and R-507 and indirect replacement (retrofit) for R-502 and its HFCF substitutes such as R-22, R-408A, DI-44 or HP80.
RS-50 is the result of the evolution of high-security HFC refrigerants (A1) with low impact on the Greenhouse effect and high energy saving in medium and low temperatures
Studies carried out by the UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya) have demonstrated that RS-50 is the refrigerant giving more cooling capacity and Coefficient of Performance (COP) compared to R-22, R-404A, R-507, R-407A y R-407F, both in medium and low evaporating temperatures.
It was also observed a significant reduction in the time required to reach the desired temperature. The special additives of RS-50 (R-442A) allow a significant improvement of POE oil return to the compressor.
