Environmentally friendly refrigerant is a non-flammable, high-efficiency, energy-saving, green and environment-friendly refrigerant. Environmentally friendly refrigerants are colorless gases at room temperature and colorless and transparent liquids under their own pressure. Environmentally friendly refrigerants are currently internationally recognized as the best substitute for R12 (i.e. difluorodichloromethane).

The mutual solubility of environmentally friendly refrigerants and mineral oil is not good, and the mutual solubility of ester oil (POE68) is good. Environmentally friendly refrigerants are widely used in the refrigeration systems of automotive air conditioners and central air conditioners, and can also be used in refrigerators, freezers, pharmaceutical and cosmetic aerosols, etc. The followings are some common types of environmentally friendly refrigerants for everyone to learn and reference.

1. R134a (tetrafluoroethane) refrigerant

R134a is currently recognized as one of the main refrigerants to replace R12. It is commonly used in vehicle air conditioners, commercial and industrial refrigeration systems, and as a foaming agent for the production of hard plastic insulation materials, and can also be used to configure other mixed refrigeration, such as R404A and R407C, etc.

Main application: It is mainly used as a refrigerant instead of R12, and is widely used in automobile air conditioners and refrigerators.

2. R410A refrigerant

Physical and chemical properties: At normal temperature and pressure, R410A is a chlorine-free fluoroalkane non-azeotropic mixed refrigerant, a colorless gas, which is a compressed liquefied gas stored in a steel cylinder. Its ODP is 0, so R410A is an environmentally friendly refrigerant that does not destroy the atmospheric ozone layer.

Main application: R410A is mainly used to replace R22 and R502. It has the characteristics of cleanliness, low toxicity, non-combustibility, and a good cooling effect. It is widely used in household air conditioners, small commercial air conditioners, and household central air conditioners.

3. R407C refrigerant

Physical and chemical properties: At normal temperature and pressure, R407C is a chlorine-free fluoroalkane non-azeotropic mixed refrigerant, a colorless gas, which is a compressed liquefied gas stored in a steel cylinder. Its ODP is 0, so R407C is an environmentally friendly refrigerant that does not destroy the atmospheric ozone layer.

Main application: R407C is mainly used to replace R22. It has the characteristics of cleanliness, low toxicity, non-combustibility, and a good cooling effect. It is widely used in household air conditioners and small and medium-sized central air conditioners.

4. R417A refrigerant

Physical and chemical properties: At normal temperature and pressure, R417A is a chlorine-free fluoroalkane non-azeotropic mixed refrigerant, a colorless gas, which is a compressed liquefied gas stored in a steel cylinder. Its ODP is 0, so R417A is an environmentally friendly refrigerant that does not destroy the atmospheric ozone layer.

Main use: R417A is mainly used to replace R22, with the characteristics of cleanliness, low toxicity, non-combustibility, and good cooling effect.

5. R404A refrigerant

Physical and chemical properties: R404A must not be a chlorine-free non-azeotropic mixed refrigerant. It is a colorless gas at normal temperature and pressure and is a compressed liquefied gas stored in a steel cylinder. Its ODP is 0, so R404A is an environmentally friendly refrigerant that does not destroy the atmospheric ozone layer.

Main application: R404A is mainly used to replace R22 and R502. It has the characteristics of cleanliness, low toxicity, non-combustibility, and good refrigeration effect. It is widely used in medium and low-temperature refrigeration systems.

6. R507 refrigerant

Physicochemical properties: R507 is a chlorine-free azeotropic mixed refrigerant. It is a colorless gas under normal temperature and pressure and is a compressed liquefied gas stored in a steel cylinder. Its ODP is 0, so R507 is an environmentally friendly refrigerant that does not destroy the atmospheric ozone layer.

Main application: R507 is mainly used to replace R22 and R502. It has the characteristics of cleanliness, low toxicity, non-combustibility, and good refrigeration effect. It is widely used in medium and low-temperature refrigeration systems.

7. R23 (trifluoromethane) refrigerant

Physical and chemical properties: R23 (trifluoromethane, FREON23), the boiling point under normal pressure is 82.1 °C, the freezing point is 155.2 °C, the liquid density (25 °C) is 0.67kg/L, the critical density is 0.525kg/L, the critical pressure is 4.83MPa, consumption The ozone potential value (ODP) is 0, which is an environmentally friendly refrigerant.

Main application: Trifluoromethane, also known as HFC23, is a high-pressure liquefied gas that can be used as a refrigerant to replace CFC13. At the same time, it is an ideal substitute for halon 1301, which has the characteristics of cleanliness, low toxicity, and good fire extinguishing effect.

8. R508A refrigerant

Physicochemical properties: R508A is a chlorine-free azeotropic mixed refrigerant. It is a colorless gas under normal temperature and pressure and is a compressed liquefied gas stored in a steel cylinder. Its ODP is 0, so R508A is an environmentally friendly refrigerant that does not destroy the atmospheric ozone layer.

Main use: R508A is mainly used to replace R13, R23, R503, with the characteristics of cleanliness, low toxicity, non-combustibility, good refrigeration effect, etc., and is widely used in ultra-low temperature refrigeration systems, such as medical refrigeration, scientific research refrigeration.

9.R508B refrigerant

Physicochemical properties: R508B is a chlorine-free azeotropic mixed refrigerant. It is a colorless gas at normal temperature and pressure and is a compressed liquefied gas stored in a steel cylinder. Its ODP is 0, so R508B is an environmentally friendly refrigerant that does not destroy the atmospheric ozone layer.

Main use: R508B is mainly used to replace R13, R23, R503, with the characteristics of cleanliness, low toxicity, non-combustibility, good refrigeration effect, etc., and is widely used in ultra-low temperature refrigeration systems, such as medical refrigeration, scientific research refrigeration.
