A-Gas has introduced an online selection form to make the switch from high GWP to low GWP refrigerants as easy as possible.
The F-Gas Regulations mean installers and end-users must look at greener options and make more efficient use of their refrigerants. But the requirements of each system are different and finding the right low-GWP alternative can be a challenge for even the most experienced refrigeration specialist.
Chemours today confirmed price increases of up to 30% on its range of Freon refrigerants sold in the EU, effective from 1 May.
The cost of buying R404A or R507A goes up by 30%, with R407A, R410A, R407C and R134a to cost 10% more.
R404A has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 3922 and R507A a GWP of 3985.
The company said the transition from high-GWP products such as R404A to low-GWP products such as its Opteon range would help drive the EU market to achieve the goals outlined in the F-Gas Regulation.
