What do You Need to Know About R134A Refrigerant?
R134A is a 100 series refrigerant and R134As is the chemical name. The "R" stands for refrigerant, alternating with its specific name HFC-407C. The container is a brand new factory-sealed disposable container of guaranteed quality and value. Cold air provides all common refrigerants used on the market today.
What is R134A used for?
R-134A is the most widely used medium and low temperature environmentally friendly refrigerant. The R-134A was successful due to its good overall performance
As a very effective and safe alternative to R-12, it is mainly used in most areas where R12 refrigerant is used, including refrigerators, freezers, water dispensers, automotive air conditioners, central air conditioners, dehumidifiers, cold storage, commercial refrigeration, Ice water machine, ice cream machine, refrigeration condensing unit, refrigeration equipment.
At the same time, it can also be used as an aerosol propellant, medical aerosol, insecticide aerosol propellant, polymer (plastic) physical foaming agent, magnesium alloy protective gas, etc. R-134A can be widely used in automobile air conditioners, refrigerators, central air conditioners, commercial refrigeration, and other industries, and can be used in medicine, pesticides, cosmetics, cleaning, and other industries.
How to pack R-134A?
Cylinder packaging, specifications are 200g, 250g, 300g, 13.6kg, 100kg, 400kg, 800kg, the filling factor is not more than 1.1kg/L, must be stored in a cool, dry, ventilated place, avoid sunlight and rain.
Everything has good chemical stability, but because its water solubility is larger than that of R22, it is not good for the refrigeration system. Even if there is a small amount of water, under the action of lubricating oil, etc., it will produce acid, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide or Corrosive effects on metals, or "copper" effects, therefore requiring more drying and cleaning of the system. R134a has no chemical reaction with steel, iron, copper, aluminum, and other metals, and only has a slight effect on zinc.
Tips for R134A refrigerant
If the target environment is hot and your used car is light, the R134A is fine. If you live in a hot climate and want to drive a small-capacity car every day, and the air conditioning upgrade works well, you might want to consider sticking with the R12. You can add ester oil to use with R12 or R 134A. The more firmly a modern system accepts refrigerant, the less one has to worry about how the system works.
It has a low slip temperature and uses a direct expansion and overflow evaporator system. The R-513A is the closest new and modified system to the R-134A. It has a lower GWP and Class A1 refrigerant and is an alternative to R-134A for stationary systems.
R-450A R-450A is an azeotropic refrigerant blend containing a heavy fuel oil refrigerant designed to replace R-135A for commercial and industrial refrigerators, air conditioners, and refrigerators.
It has an ODP of zero and a GWP of 4. HFO 1234YF (Hydrofluoroolefin) - This is a low GWP alternative to R 134A, intended for use in mobile air conditioning systems in the automotive industry. Its GWP is more than 300 times lower than that of R134A.
