Have You Heard About Hydrocarbon Refrigerants?

Hydrocarbon refrigerants are commonplace in Europe, but when will we see them in the US? Hydrocarbon refrigeration has arrived!

They were able to accomplish this even with the EPA limits to a maximum 150g per refrigeration circuit.

Many manufacturers of refrigerated merchandisers have programs well underway to develop hydrocarbon systems. Hydrocarbon refrigerants definitely have a market in the US, but whether a slow introduction in small-volume systems will equate to commonplace, is yet to be seen.
