Easily replaces harmful
HC Refrigerants are designed to replace many environmentally harmful refrigerants
currently in use.
|• HC-12a® is designed as a drop-in
replacement for ozone-depleting CFC R12 and global-warming HFC R134a
• HC-22a® is designed as a drop-in
replacement for ozone-depleting HCFC R22 refrigerant.
• HC-502a® is designed as a drop-in
replacement for ozone-depleting CFC R502 refrigerant.
A natural solution to a global dilemma
A growing awareness of the environmental issues facing our planet has
motivated many world leaders and governments to embrace hydrocarbon technology
as a long-term solution to environmental concerns. The European Common
has adopted a new Standard, CEN 378, which provides guidelines for the
use and installation of HC refrigerants in over 14 European countries.
In the past five years alone, more than eight million refrigerators and
freezers were manufactured in Germany and Denmark utilizing HC technology.
In the U.S., ASHRAE has rewritten Standard 15 to provide a framework for
greater use of HC refrigerants. In the past ten years, more than one million
gallons of our HC Refrigerant has been used to cool between three million
and five million motor vehicles throughout North America. During that
period, there have been no reported accidents or injuries attributed to
the use of our products.
A safe alternative to traditional refrigerants
Like all hydrocarbons, HC Refrigerants are flammable. But in terms of
safety issues, HC Refrigerants pose no greater threat than other flammable
products such as hair spray, aerosol cleaners and insect repellents. Common
sense, and adherence to the manufacturer’s labeling and directions,
has virtually eliminated the inherent risks associated with the use of
such products. Used as directed, HC Refrigerants are completely safe,
and, unlike many new alternative refrigerants, are also non-toxic and
environmentally friendly. Risk Assessment studies, carried out worldwide
by scientists and institutions, have recognized the safety of hydrocarbon
refrigerants, often in preference to established CFC replacements.
