Wholesale fruit distributor Ortolan is using Honeywell's Solstice L40X (R-455A) refrigerant in its new storage warehouse in Marmande, southwest France.
The application of Solstice L40X enables Ortolan to meet strict F-Gas environmental regulations and delivers the performance it requires at the lowest possible global warming potential (GWP), supporting the company’s environmental vision for the site.
Julien Soulet, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Fluorine Products Europe, Middle East, Africa and India, said: “Solstice L40X is ideal for fresh and sensitive product applications where environmental considerations are increasingly important. For Ortolan, the solution offers a compelling total cost of ownership proposition, while fulfilling sustainability objectives and full compliance with regulations.”
Solstice® L40X (R-455A) is a mildly flammable, zeotropic blend that serves as an alternative for low-, medium- and high-temperature applications in new systems. Its low GWP of 146 (IPCC AR5) makes it F-Gas compliant and ideal for commercial and industrial refrigeration applications, including condensing units, water loop systems, plug-in cabinets, monoblocks for cold rooms, heat pumps and chillers.
