Chemours has announced that MEHITS, part of the Mitsubishi Electric Group, has chosen low GWP Opteon XL41 (R454B) and XP10 (R513A) refrigerants for chillers and heat pumps. 
MEHITS selected the A2L refrigerant XL41 to replace R410A for its multi-scroll platform. It offers a GWP of 466 and also reduces CO2 emissions by almost 80% when compared to R410A, while providing improved energy efficiency and similar capacity. 

XP10 (X513A), chosen for the screw and centrifugal oil-free platform, is a non-flammable A1 azeotropic refrigerant alternative to R134a with a GWP of 631, making it an ideal replacement at 50% less GWP when compared to R134a.

Diego Boeri, vice president of Chemours Fluorochemicals, said: “We are proud that MEHITS chose Chemours and Opteon XL41 and XP10 for its chiller and heat pumps. This collaboration will help the chiller and heat pump industry move towards more environmentally sustainable refrigerant solutions while meeting long-term regulatory requirements and delivering consistent performance.”
