Make an Informed R-22 Replacement Decision

If you haven’t considered replacing R-22 in your supermarket refrigeration system yet, time is running out. Supplies of R-22 are set to be reduced every year until 2020 when R-22 will no longer be available. Review Honeywell’s non-ozone-depleting alternatives to determine which R-22 replacement is right for you.

Product Name ASHRAE # Product Description
Solstice N40 R-448A Nonflammable, reduced GWP replacement for R404A or R22 in supermarket applications, especially low- and medium-temperature refrigeration, as well as transport refrigeration.
Solstice N13 R-450A Nonflammable, reduced GWP replacement for R134a in medium temperature applications like heat pumps, air-cooled and water-cooled chillers, district heating and cooling systems, vending machines and beverage dispensers, CO2 cascade systems and transport refrigeration.
Genetron Performax® LT R-407F A long-term, non-ozone depleting replacement for R-22 suitable for medium and low temperature applications. Since Genetron Performax LT is a close match to R-22, it also serves as a retrofit fluid in refrigeration applications where R-22 is used.
Genetron® 407C R-407C A long-term, non-ozone depleting replacement for R-22 in various air-conditioning applications as well as in positive displacement refrigeration systems. For new equipment and retrofits. Not recommended for use in chillers with a flooded evaporator.
Genetron® 404A R-404A A long-term non-ozone depleting replacement for R-502 and R-22 in low- and medium-temperature commercial refrigeration systems.
Genetron® AZ-50® R-507 A non-ozone depleting azeotropic mixture of R-125 and R-143a. It has been primarily designed to replace R-502 in low- and medium-temperature commercial refrigeration applications such as supermarket display cases and ice machines. For new equipment and retrofits. R-507 is suitable as a replacement for R-22 in flooded refrigeration systems.
Genetron® 422D R-422D A long-term non-ozone depleting replacement for HCFC in low- and medium-temperature commercial refrigeration systems and as a retrofit solution in air conditioning installations. Suitable for direct expansion evaporators. Do not use in systems that employ flooded evaporators. For new equipment and retrofits.
Genetron® 245fa R-245fa A non-ozone depleting candidate replacement for R-11 in centrifugal chillers. For new equipment.
Genetron® 134a R-134a Replaces R-12 in auto air conditioning and in residential, commercial and industrial refrigeration systems. For new equipment.
Genetron® 22 R-22 As a refrigerant, operates with higher system pressures but low compressor displacement. Popular in residential, commercial and industrial applications.
Genetron® 23 R-23 A specialty low temperature refrigerant that may be used to replace R-13 and R-503 in the low stage of cascade systems. For new equipment and retrofits.
Genetron® 408A R-408A An interim replacement for retrofitting low-and medium-temperature commercial refrigeration systems.
Genetron® 409A R-409A An interim replacement for R-12 in refrigeration systems. For low- and medium-temperature retrofits.
508B R-508B A non-ozone depleting azeotrope of R-23 and FC-116 used to replace R-13 and R-503 in the low stage of cascade systems. For new equipment and retrofits.
