Climalife, the leading distributor of refrigerants in Europe, is here to support you in dealing with the move to lower GWP solutions to meet the needs of the F-Gas regulations with new refrigerant alternatives (HFC / HFO) for both new and existing systems.
HFOs, (HydroFluoro-Olefins) are 4th generation refrigerants, with low GWP values that reduce environmental impact while offering energy efficiency.
Alternatives for R-404A / R-507A
R-448A is a non-azeotropic blend containing HFO refrigerants with a much reduced GWP compared to R-404A (1387 vs 3922). It has been designed to replace R-404A in new and existing installations for both commercial and industrial refrigeration applications (MT & LT). Easy to implement and has been approved by major compressor manufacturers.
R-455A is a R-404A replacement fluid with a GWP below 150, intended for use in new installations, across medium and low temperature refrigeration, in condensing units and self- contained systems.
Alternatives for R-410A
R-452B is a non azeotropic blend containing refrigerants from the hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) family, designed to replace R-410A in new installations, particularly in heat pumps, commercial rooftop air conditioners, VRF systems and medium pressure liquid coolers (air/water chillers).
Alternatives for R-134a
R-450A is a near azeotropic blend containing an HFO refrigerant, designed to replace R-134a in medium temperature refrigeration, as well as air conditioning and chillers. The operating characteristics are similar to R134a with a GWP of 605.
Solstice®yf is a fluorinated gas from the HFO family. This product has a very low GWP value and is suitable for automotive air conditioning applications.
Solstice® ze is a fluorinated gas from the HFO family. This product has a very low GWP value (GWP = 7) and is suitable for air conditioning applications, chillers, heat pump, medium temp refrigeration and in cascade systems with CO2.
Alternatives for R-123 and R-245fa
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.
