Transitioning to a Greener Cooling Solution
Pharmaceutical giant tackles HFC phase-down with greener refrigerant solution
Our customer needed a more compliant solution for their existing plant, which used the refrigerant R404A.
Due to its high global warming potential (GWP) of 3,943, R404A is one of the main refrigerants targeted for phase out in Europe under the F gas regulations. Strict quotas have significantly reduced availability of this gas, causing the cost per kilo to dramatically increase, presenting a serious risk to businesses still using it.
Our customer therefore needed a refrigerant solution that would offer reduced maintenance costs, while ensuring the plant had no reduction in performance and remained compliant with F gas regulations.
We devised a solution to retrofit their existing plant with R448A to provide a greener solution.
