For the last six months, a new product on the refrigeration market has offered reductions in your energy bills and can reduce your carbon footprint at the same time. A product from the R&D department of Honeywell, this product is a combination of HFCs, intended for low and medium temperature commercial refrigeration applications.
Genetron® PerformaxTM LT is the best performing, lowest global warming potential refrigerant for new supermarket installations with improved energy efficiency versus other HFCs. With a higher capacity and efficiency than R404A, it is a better alternative at low and medium temperatures for supermarket applications.
The conversion of existing R-404A supermarket systems to Genetron® PerformaxTM LT will result in a significant reduction in their carbon footprint and power consumption. In addition, direct CO2 emissions can be reduced by more than 50%.
This product, distributed by Climalife, supplier of innovative and sustainable solutions for thermal systems, also has interesting characteristics which make it a replacement for R-22.
Genetron® PerformaxTM LT is a class A1 refrigerant, meaning that it has low toxicity and is non flammable. It is available in small volume packages right up to a shipping container.
Performax LT is therefore the best environmental combination available today:
- it gives improved capacity over R-404A.
- it improves the energy performance in installations.
- its environmental impact is less, due to a GWP of 1824 versus R-404A at 3922
- it is not necessary to change installation components when switching over to it, other than some regulation devices.
