R404A is an HFC blend that is widely used in low and medium temperature refrigeration applications, such as those used in commercial refrigeration, supermarket display cases, cold rooms, transport refrigeration and process cooling. Although it is a popular refrigerant, R404A is coming under greater scrutiny due to its high Global Warming Potential (GWP). Lower-GWP replacements (drop-in and retrofit) are available including R407F and R407C.


Medium and low temperature refrigeration applications. Approved by most manufacturers of compressors and equipment for use as a new refrigerant gas such as:

  • Cabinets and bunkers.

  • Cold storage rooms.

  • Ice machine.

  • Transport.

  • Refrigeration processes.

Product Features and Benefits

  • Substitute for R502, with comparable physical and thermodynamic properties

  • Near azeotropic refrigerant blend containing R125, R143a and R134a 

  • Refrigerant must be charged from the liquid phase to ensure accurate composition

  • PVCK refrigerant cylinders have dual port valves, making liquid offtake easier

  • Non-flammable with a safety classification of A1

  • Compressors must be charged with polyester oils, contact the compressor manufacturer for more information

For optimal performance and compatibility, PVCK recommends the use of valve fittings that have plastic sealing washers (e.g. Nylon, PTFE or PCTFE) for refrigerant products. Hard or inflexible materials such as fiber washers may cause minor connection leaks. The sealing washer should be visually inspected for damage or wear before each use. Fittings should be installed slightly tighter than hand-tight.
