German manufacturer Bitzer has released the Refrigerant Report 21, and it provides an in-depth view on commercial and development refrigerants.
The company published the first refrigerant report in 1992, and has since become known for its unbiased and innovative views.
The report lists the latest development in refrigerants, which ones are no longer viable, and discusses new alternatives on the market.
The report explores alternative refrigerants, hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) refrigerants, hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) refrigerants, refrigerant blends, and the substitutes and gases available.
Some of the new alternatives include Honeywell’s non-flammable (A1) R134a alternative blend R471A, and Daikin’s lower global warming potential (GWP) R404A replacement R468A.
