F-GAS READY SOLUTION FOR NEW HVAC EQUIPMENT
The refrigerant is a blend of 75.5% R1234yf, 21.5% R32, and 3% CO2, with a GWP of as low as 146. Plus, it matches the capacity of R404a and has 5-6% better efficiency than the latter, and offers an extended operating envelope when compared to traditional airconditioning refrigerants and propane.
Its thermodynamic performance allows it to be an option for R22 and R404a in low- and medium-temperature refrigeration, in applications like plugin-type cabinets, condensing units, foodservice, water-loop systems. R455a is high critical temperature and low critical pressure, which makes it a potential match for applications such as supermarkets, chillers, heat pumps, low-temperature side of cascade systems, and transport refrigeration.
