Chemours highlights XL refrigerants

Chemours2-homeCHILLVENTA 2016 PREVIEW: Chemours is to spotlight its low GWP Opteon XL refrigerants.

Based on HFO technology, the XL Series refrigerants are said to offer similar properties, and in many cases increased performance, compared to current HFCs. According to Chemours, this makes them easy and cost effective to apply in new equipment without major modifications.

The Opteon XL Series comprises:

Opteon XL10 (R1234yf) is the lowest GWP Opteon replacement for R134a in new equipment designs. It has a GWP <1 and offers similar performance when replacing R134a in positive displacement, direct expansion medium temperature commercial and industrial applications.

Opteon XL20 (R454C) is the lowest GWP Opteon replacement for R404A and R22 in new equipment designs. With a GWP of 146, Opteon XL20 falls under the 150-threshold value in the F-gas regulation and Eco-design, thus being particularly suited for hermetically-sealed systems.

Opteon XL40 (R454A) is a lower GWP replacement for R404A in new equipment designs, but with improved performance and higher cooling capacity. With a GWP of 238, XL40 is said to offer the optimal balance of properties when replacing R404A in positive displacement, direct expansion low and medium temperature commercial and industrial applications

Opteon XL41 (R454B) is designed as the lowest GWP Opteon replacement for R410A in new positive displacement, direct expansion air conditioning, heat pump and chiller applications. It has a GWP of 467.

Opteon XL55 (R452B) is a low GWP replacement for R410A in new equipment designs, but with improved performance, excellent design compatibility with R410A equipment and lower 2L flammability properties. Opteon XL55 has a GWP of 676 and is said to offer the optimal balance of performance, safety and design compatibility when replacing R410A in positive displacement, direct expansion air conditioning, heat pump and chiller applications. According to Chemours its combination of design compatibility and reduced compressor discharge temperature, as compared to other R410A alternatives such as R32, enables OEMs to transition their R410A equipment platform with minimal re-design and capital expenditures.
