R404A has long been the most widely used refrigerant for mobile, commercial and industrial refrigeration—including the prolific Transport Refrigeration industry. It was first introduced in the 1990’s as a more environmentally friendly replacement for CFCs and HCFCs—but it is no longer considered the best option for emissions efficiency.
R452A is a new alternative refrigerant for R404A and has a 45% lower environmental impact. It also reduces your operating costs while complying with the upcoming 2020 F-GAS regulations. TCCI is one of the few companies ready to sell R452A compliant compressors—QP13, 15 and 16.
