EPA Approves New HFC Refrigerant

DARTMOUTH, NS, Canada — Refrigerant Services Inc. has announced that its HFC refrigerant RS-24 that works with mineral oil has received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Significant New Alternatives Program (SNAP).

The refrigerant is used as a retrofit for systems originally designed for use with R-12. Its makeup includes “a small amount of a specially formulated hydrocarbon component that provides enhanced oil return capabilities,” according to the company.

The company noted that SNAP approval will allow the product to be brought to the United States. Company officials said the refrigerant is still awaiting designation from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

For more information, contact Refrigerant Services at 902-468-4997.
