Alternative to R123 Refrigerant in Chillers

07/06/2020 6:19 AM

Any suggestions on alternatives to R123 refrigerant?

R123 is getting more scarce and difficult to source with the phase out time drawing nearer.

...."XP30, proposed for ASHRAE designation as R514A, blends 1336mzz(Z) with trans-1,2-dichloroethene, a gas not previously used in refrigerants. Another potential replacement for R123 in centrifugal and positive-displacement chillers, R514A is deemed acceptable as a retrofit gas as well as in new equipment."...May 22, 2016
