Find the Right Refrigerant for your R-22 Retrofit

Genetron 407C (R-407C)

  • Best capacity match to R-22
  • The most efficient R-22 retrofit option in the marketplace
  • A change to POE lubricant, or the addition of some POE to the system is required for proper oil return
  • Requires minimum of 20% POE for close-coupled systems
  • No TXV change required
  • GWP of 1774
  • Lower discharge temperature than R-22

Genetron 422D (R-422D)

  • No oil change* or TXV** change in most installations
  • Satisfies customers looking for a “drop-in” option
  • Slightly less capacity and efficiency but lower discharge temperatures
  • Can be used with AB, MO, POE lubricants* when short connecting lines are used

*System designs vary and the addition of POE may be required to assure proper oil return.
**The mass flow of 422D is higher than that of R-22. An evaluation of the expansion device is recommended.
