Refrigerant and chemicals manufacturer, Honeywell has a new, low global warming potential refrigerant designed for medium and low temperature standalone applications.
Solstice L40X (R455A) is an A2L refrigeration which will have broad appeal in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration industry because of its suitability for use in small charge, plug-in type cabinets, condensing units, monoblocs for cold rooms and freezer rooms, small & large chillers and heat pumps.
These HFO (Hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerants will be around for decades, as stated by Honeywell who have invested $900 million in developing them. With that, Honeywell believes they are a good, long term investment for companies who to be both environmentally friendly and efficient.
New Honeywell iOS app for understanding high GWP refrigerant replacements
Honeywell released a new iPhone and iPad app at Chillventa to help air conditioning and refrigeration engineers compare high and low GWP refrigerants, and understand their properties.
The app, the 'Honeywell Refrigerant Selection Tool EU', will help engineers understand a refrigerant's capacity, efficiency or global warming potential. The app has a built-in refrigerant to help engineers understand how much refrigerant to use in a system.
