Carrier to offer new refrigerant

  • Posted on Thursday 9th, November 2017.

Carrier Transicold has begun offering the new-generation refrigerant R-452A as an alternative for use in its truck and trailer refrigeration systems here in Australia.

“As a near drop-in substitute, R-452A offers similar levels of refrigeration performance, fuel efficiency, reliability and refrigerant charge in new equipment as R-404A, and we are pleased to be able to make it available to refrigerated transport operators seeking a lower GWP option to advance environmental sustainability,” said Kelly Geddes, Marketing Manager, Carrier Transicold Australia.

R-452A is a refrigerant blend with a low-GWP hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) as one of its key components, Geddes said.

“Carrier Transicold has extensive experience with R-452A, having first offered it in 2015 to help Europe’s transport refrigeration industry respond to the European Union F Gas Regulation, which is driving down Europe’s use of traditional HFC refrigerants with higher GWPs,” Geddes said.

While Carrier Transicold will continue to offer R-404A, it will begin to provide R-452A for new model Vector and X4 Series trailer refrigeration units, Supra truck units and direct-drive truck units that currently use R-404A.
