Future Development Of Difluoromethane R-32

  • R32 – The Future of  Fluorinated Solvent
    Over time, refrigerants have been advancing, and now is the time to use a new AC refrigerant, namely R-32. result? Lower energy consumption and even lower environmental impact. Let us see how.

    R-32 is a hot topic these days, and for good reason. On the one hand, its global warming potential (GWP) is 32% of R-410A. GWP is a measure of how much a chemical substance emits to the environment. Lower GWP means less emissions and more environmentally friendly refrigeration.

    In addition, the system using R-32 can reduce the refrigerant consumption in the system by up to 20%, thereby further saving costs.

    Although the widespread adoption of R-32 is still some time away, the prospects for this type of refrigerant are very bright. Since countries such as Japan and China are already implementing it, it is only a matter of time before the entire world moves towards these higher efficiencies. In the United States, reports show that half of the window air conditioners sold in 2018 used Difluoromethane R-32.
