Briton Refrigerant R290a

Briton Refrigerant R290a

Briton Refrigerant R290 is a natural refrigerant. It is suitable for a variety of purposes, but its high flammability prevents its use in large plants.

Hydrocarbons are not harmful to the ozone layer. The use of R290a has increased specifically thanks to its low environmental impact as well as its excellent thermodynamic performance.

Briton Refrigerant R290a well known as a high-power fuel

R290a is well-suited to numerous refrigeration and air conditioning applications in both commercial, industrial and domestic systems. It is at least 99.5% pure and contains very low amounts of impurities (moisture, unsaturated carbohydrates).

Amusement parks and the film industry use propane as an affordable high-power fuel in the creation of special effects, such as explosions.

It is a highly flammable refrigerant, so naturally it is not a suitable replacement product for fluorocarbon-based refrigeration systems.

R290a serves as a substitute for refrigerants R22 and R502.

Replacement Refrigerants

Alternative substances for R290a is R600a and R1270
