Refrigerant solutions for air conditioning and heat pumps

Choosing an alternative refrigerant for air conditioning and heat pump applications is not a simple task. There are a lot of factors to keep in mind, including regional regulations, applied standards, and building codes. In the last year, the situation has become even more complicated due to massive price increases and the decreased availability of fluorinated refrigerants. This new video simplifies the complex refrigerant landscape and give you options for both short-term and long-term refrigerant scenarios.

What is glide and the resulting consequences for the superheat setting

In the coming decades, old refrigerants will be replaced with newer, more sustainable refrigerants. To reduce both global warming potential (GWP) and ozone depletion potential (ODP), refrigerants are sometimes mixed together to create blends — an example being R407F, which consists of three different refrigerants. Due to the different boiling and condensation points of the blended refrigerants, some complications and considerations arise. Watch the video for a full explanation of glide and what should be done about it.

The Fridge – How it Works

Have you ever wondered how the fridge works? Take a look at the very basics of refrigeration, get familiar with the main components of the fridge and look up what’s happening with the refrigerant in the pipes.

Danfoss refrigerant scenario for air conditioning and heat pumps

Choosing a refrigerant is no simple task; have a look at the mid-term and long term refrigerant scenario for air conditioning and heat pumps; it depends on the timing of regional regulations as well as applied standards and building codes. In the last year, the situation has been further complicated by massive price increases and the decreased availability of fluorinated refrigerants.
