Honeywell Reports Availability

DALLAS — At the time of the AHR Expo, Honeywell reported on the availability of its new Solstice™ L-41 low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant, designed as a lower GWP alternative to R-410A.

Solstice L-41 offers a 75 percent reduction in GWP compared to R-410A and is intended to replace R-410A in residential and light commercial air conditioning and heat-pump applications, the company said. In addition to its lower GWP, “Solstice L-41 offers excellent energy efficiency, is cost effective, and can be used in existing equipment designs with minimal changes,” the company added.

It is an HFO refrigerant with an A2L safety rating. “Honeywell has been working closely with leading equipment manufacturers to optimize Solstice L-41 to meet the demanding requirements of both stationary air conditioning and heat-pump applications across a broad range of operating conditions,” said Tom Morris, director of commercial development for Honeywell Fluorine Products. “Solstice L-41 will allow these manufacturers to offer more environmentally friendly air conditioning and heat-pump systems to help address climate change.”
