A New Generation Refrigerant Replacement for Industrial and Transport Refrigeration
Opteon™ XP44 (R-452A) refrigerant is a non-ozone depleting, low global warming potential (GWP) hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) based replacement for R-404A and R-507 refrigerants. It can be used in new commercial refrigeration equipment and for the retrofit of existing systems.
Opteon™ XP44 is well-suited for use in direct-expansion (DX) chillers, as well as for commercial systems that provide low- and medium-temperature transport DX refrigeration, such as refrigerated trucks, refrigerated vans, and reefer containers. It also can be used in low- and medium-temperature commercial and industrial DX refrigeration systems.
Features and Benefits
Opteon™ XP44 is approved and adopted by major commercial refrigeration equipment manufacturers. It offers a similar compressor discharge temperature and mass flow rate of R-404A and R-507.
Benefits of using Opteon™ XP44 as an R-404A or R-507 replacement in commercial refrigeration systems include:
- Low GWP: 45% reduction compared to R-404A/R-507
- Compatibility with existing equipment designs and lubricants
- Eliminates the need for thermal expansion valve (TXV) adjustments
- Can be topped off after leaks
- Matches discharge temperature of R-404A and R-507
- Safe and nonflammable
