Honeywell Refrigerants Gas is the established technical leaderin the development of fluorine-based (HFC) refrigerants for the commercial and industrial refrigeration industry worldwide. And, as you would expect from a world-class supplier, we have been at the forefront of the industry’s drive to develop these safer, non-ozone depleting alternatives to the older technology, environmentally unfriendly CFC and HCFC refrigerants, in compliance with global legislation for their phase-out.
To ensure that customers are fully supported in this transition, Honeywell has dedicated its research resources to developing a comprehensive range of alternative intermediate and long-term refrigerants, that are not only safer to use but that are able to meet or surpass the performance levels of the products they replace.
For commercial and industrial refrigeration replacement of (CFC) Genetron® 502 and (HCFC) Genetron® 22 are the industry’s principle focus. Honeywell’s long-term solutions for low and medium temperature applications are Genetron® 507 and Genetron® 404A, both non-ozone depleting refrigerants. Genetron® 507 is an azeotropic blend of HFC-125 and HFC-143a, and Genetron® 404A is a blend of HFC-125, HFC-143a and HFC 134a. Both options can give a high level of efficiency with performance and characteristics similar to Genetron® 502, and be used as replacements in retrofits as well as in new equipment.
