The phase-out of traditional R-22 refrigerants in industrial processing equipment has been a cause of growing concern for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and other industrial processing companies such as supermarket chains, ice-rink and commercial facilities. Much of this concern stems from the uneasiness surrounding the concept of “drop-in” replacements and to what degree retrofitting is necessary to accommodate the new industry guidelines.

“There are compelling reasons Priority Cool® refrigerants are increasing in popularity. Being environmentally friendly, reducing energy costs and a convenient drop-in replacement are only a few. Of particular importance to an OEM is the reduced refrigerant charge. Why is this important? Because PC will offer the same performance as CFC and HFC refrigerants with a reduced charge. With a reduced charge OEMs can downsize equipment components such as compressors, evaporators, condensers and the refrigeration piping within a piece of equipment. This reduction in size results in less weight, less raw materials, lower shipping cost, lower manufacturing cost and a higher energy rating”.
