R-290 – Eco-Safe Refrigerant Grade
R-290 is a refrigerant grade Hydrocarbon suitable for a range of refrigeration and air conditioning applications, including commercial refrigeration, commercial vending machines, ice machines, industrial refrigeration, residential and light air conditioning, and industrial/commercial air conditioning DX chillers. R-290 holds numerous benefits that have caused it to become continuously more prevalent in commercial and industrial applications including:
- Extremely Low Environmental Impact
- Superb Thermodynamic Performance
- Non-Ozone Depleting Properties
- Reduced Overall Energy Costs
- Higher Purity
- Smaller Quantity of Coolant Needed
Lower Your Energy Costs
Hydrocarbons can lower energy costs by as much as 25%, leading manufacturers to use them in a wide array of commercial appliances, including refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, water heaters, and clothes dryers. It is estimated that 1.5 billion hydrocarbon refrigerators and freezers are in use residentially and 2 million commercial units.
In many countries, CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) and Hydrofluorocarbons (HCFCs) are being gradually phased out of use and replaced with refrigerants that have a lower ozone depletion potential and global warming risk. R-290 is one of the newer refrigerants that is both non-toxic and safe for the environment. These environmentally responsible refrigerants are increasingly in demand.
