R410A is used in domestic and light air conditioning equipment. R410A's low glide also makes it suitable for some centrifugal compressors, and it can operate in low temperature applications. As a HFC blend designed for new R22 applications, it operates at higher pressures than many other refrigerants, and so cannot be used to retrofit R22 systems. Systems designed for R410A can take advantage of its ability to use smaller components.
It is used as a refrigerant in:
Domestic and commercial air conditioning systems.
Other HVAC applications.
Due to the high cooling capacity and pressures of R-410A, it should not be used as a substitute for R-22.
Product Features and Benefits
Substitute for R22 and R13B1
Near azeotropic refrigerant blend containing R32 and R125
Refrigerant must be charged from the liquid phase to ensure accurate composition
PVCK refrigerant cylinders have dual port valves, making liquid off-take easier
Non-flammable with a safety classification of A1
Compressors must be charged with polyester oils, contact the compressor manufacturer for more information
Distinct higher efficiency in comparison with R22
Not a retrofit replacement due to much higher operating pressures
Higher pressures of this refrigerant are to be considered, especially with regards to system components
