ENGIE Refrigeration has added a new refrigerant to its portfolio: all Quantum chillers are now alternatively available with refrigerant R-513A.
This puts the Lindau refrigeration specialist a step ahead of times as the new refrigerant complies with EU Regulation 517/2014 (F-gases regulation).
All of ENGIE Refrigeration’s Quantum models – air-cooled, water-cooled and split models – can now run using R-513A as refrigerant.
The refrigerant distinguishes itself by safety class A1 as per EN 378 and a low GWP (global warming potential) of only 631.
R-513A is nonflammable and consists to 44% of R-134a (GWP: 1430) and to 56% of R-1234yf (GWP: 4).
The new R-513A can substitute the former standard R-134a and uses the same compressor types: Using the new refrigerant, a Quantum chiller will reach almost the same refrigeration capacity and energy efficiency as with R-134a.
By employing the new refrigerant R-513A, ENGIE Refrigeration is assisting its customers in transitioning to an alternative for running their refrigeration systems that will remain usable in future. R-513A possesses a low global warming potential and already meets the future requirements of the F-gases regulation today.
