Emerson approves R407F for use in Copeland Scroll compressors

Honeywell has announced that its R407F refrigerant, branded Genetron Performax LT has been approved by Emerson Climate Technologies for use in its Copeland Scroll compressors (ZB & ZF Range) for low and medium-temperature refrigeration applications. It is also approved for the latest Copeland Stream compressors.

“Supermarkets invest in high-quality compressors like Emerson’s so their chillers and freezers can maintain a consistent temperature. Refrigeration managers want to use a cost-effective and energy-efficient refrigerant in their compressors,” said Robert Kebby, marketing manager for the refrigerants business of Honeywell Fluorine Products in Europe, Middle East, Africa and India. “Genetron Performax LT preserves superheat more effectively than R407A, R427A, MO99 and R422B. Preserving superheat prevents floodback issues, which protects compressors and extends their life.”

Performax LT refrigerant is specifically designed to replace R22 and provides similar performance to R22 in refrigeration, but requires fewer equipment modifications, has lower global warming potential and offers improved capacity and efficiency versus most popular low and medium-temperature refrigerants, the firm says. The combination of these factors provides for the lowest total CO2 footprint with a non-ozone-depleting refrigerant, Honeywell claims.

R407F can also be used as an R-404A medium and low temperature retrofit refrigerant, providing similar/better capacity and improved efficiency, while cutting GWP by more than 50 per cent, the firm adds.
