HC refrigerant is hydrocarbon refrigerant, which is one of most refrigerants. Hydrocarbon refrigerants mainly have the two advantages of energy saving and environmental protection: air conditioners using hydrocarbon refrigerants can save energy consumption by about 15% to 35% compared with R134 and R22 air conditioners. Environmental protection: they are natural working fluids, so they have no pollution to the atmosphere, no damage to the ozone layer, and almost zero greenhouse effect.
HC Refrigerant Features
1. Environmentally friendly
HC refrigerants do not damage the ozone layer.
2. High efficiency and energy saving
The freezing point is low, and the latent heat of evaporation is greater, which makes the cooling rate faster per unit of time; the specific work of isentropic compression is small, which makes the compressor work easier and prolongs the service life of the compressor; the molecular weight is small, the fluidity is good, and the delivery pressure is lower. Reduced compressor load. It can prolong the service life of the compressor, reduce power consumption, and save the system’s operating costs. The comprehensive energy-saving rate can reach 15-35%.
3. Good cooling performance
Shorten the refrigeration time of the air conditioner compressor, and the refrigeration effect is much better than that of R134 and R22.
4. High oil mixing rate
The oil mixing ratio of hydrocarbon refrigerant is extremely high, compatible with all common refrigeration lubricating oils (mineral lubricating oil, synthetic lubricating oil), non-toxic, and non-corrosive to metals and oil-resistant rubber.
5. Easy to fill
There is no need to change the air conditioning system and filling procedure. Just follow the original filling procedure.
6. Wide range of uses
Mainly used in refrigeration systems such as household air conditioners, central air conditioners, refrigerated vehicles, air source water heaters, cold storage, freezers, and refrigerators.
7. Strong adaptability
It has unique adaptability to hot climates, good fluidity, and is more suitable for long-pipe refrigeration systems. Most refrigerants are composed of chlorofluorocarbons, hydrofluorocarbons, or mixtures of hydrochlorofluorocarbons. These refrigerants have been proven to be unsuitable. Use in hot or tropical areas.
8. Fully up to standard
Hydrocarbon refrigerants have passed the standard certification of ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers) and are fluorine-free, high-efficiency, energy-saving, and environmentally friendly products.
