R467A is first Indian-developed refrigerant to get Ashrae designation

Manufacturer SRF claims first for its low flammability blend designed for AC systems

Indian refrigerant manufacturer SRF says it has obtained Ashrae certification for R467A, its new, low-GWP refrigerant blend for stationary air conditioning applications. The firm say it is the first refrigerant from India to have received this certification by the Ashrae Standards Committee

R467A is a non-toxic, lower-flammability refrigerant blend designed mainly for use in stationary air conditioning applications. The A2L blend is not an HFO, but uses 0.6% R600a. 

With a GWP of 1330, the refrigerant is aimed at offering a significant GWP reduction on R22 for those countries still able to use it.

Composition is 22% R32/ 5% R125/ 72.4% R134a/ 0.6% R600a 

Average Relative Molar Mass = 84.4

Bubble Point (°C) = –40.5

Dew Point (°C) = –33.3

The blend claims to offer superior refrigerant performance and stability and will be marketed under SRF’s Floron brand of refrigerants.

Prashant Yadav, CEO, of SRF’s Fluorochemicals Business, said: “Backed by breakthrough R&D, SRF continues to remain committed to developing the next-generation of fluorinated gases that have minimal impact on the environment. We believe that this will provide a good mid term solution and option to our customers globally.”
