Stationary air-conditioning

Comfort air conditioning heating applications include a wide range of systems, from small room air conditioners to unitary systems and heat pumps, serving the cooling and heating requirements from residential needs through large commercial applications.


New equipments

Residential / commercial air-conditioning and heat pumps

Forane® 410A is the refrigerant used  in most new residential and commercial air conditioning equipment and heat pumps. Forane® 410A replaces R-22 in many applications, offering excellent performance compared to R-22 but with significantly higher refrigerating capacity and higher operating pressures, so it should not be used to retrofit existing R-22 installations.

R-22 is still the most widely used refrigerant in existing HVACR applications though it is subject to a phase-out obligation by the Montreal Protocol. To accommodate the phase-out of R-22, Arkema is providing alternatives, such as Forane® 427A and Forane® 407C, which have no phase-out date and are more environmentally sustainable than HCFCs. Forane® 427A, the Easy RetrofitTM, is an HFC refrigerant blend with thermodynamic properties similar to R-22 that was developed to minimize the work required when retrofitting R-22 systems. Forane® 427A works well with residual mineral oil left in the system and is suggested for retrofits of R-22 in air conditioning systems as well as low- and medium-temperature refrigeration. Forane® 407C is an HFC refrigerant blend that can be used to replace R-22 in new or existing positive displacement systems, including residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps.
