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.
