Whether building new or retrofitting existing supermarkets, Honeywell has the expertise to help you meet energy efficiency goals and aggressive carbon footprint reduction targets without sacrificing performance. We assist with supermarket applications with refrigerant solutions that fit your needs today and your bottom line tomorrow. When ultra-low GWP and carbon footprint issues add up to better sustainable business, we can provide the refrigerants that help maintain medium and low temperature conditions.

Commercial Refrigeration Products for Supermarkets

Product Name ASHRAE # Product Description
Solstice® L40X R-455A Long-term, F-Gas-proof solution with an ultra-low GWP of only 146 (IPCC 5). A mildly flammable, zeotropic blend that serves as an alternative for low, medium and high temperature applications in new systems. Close capacity match to R-404A, an extended operating envelope when compared to propane or air-conditioning refrigerants, and high energy efficiency. The product’s minimal flammability risk profile, high efficiency, high critical temperature and low critical pressure, makes it also a potential match for other applications such as chillers, heat pumps, or transport refrigeration.
Solstice® N13 R-450A Non flammable alternative to R-134a in medium temperature systems, offering similar performance and energy efficiency but with a global warming potential of only 547, a reduction of almost 60% of GWP.
Solstice® N40 R-448A Excellent low-GWP, highly energy efficient and non-flammable refrigerant for low and medium temperature in commercial refrigeration. The best currently available replacement for R-404A in supermarket refrigeration retrofits or new systems, vending machines (plug-ins) and other applications.
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® 404A R-404A This product has GWP of 3922. The European Commission has a proposal to prohibit refrigerants with GWP >2500 for servicing and maintaining commercial refrigeration equipment. Honeywell recommends selecting Genetron Performax LT.
Genetron® 134a R-134a Used for MAC, bus and train A/C, ORC, and medium-temperature stationary applications, however it’s being replaced by Solstice® yf (in MAC).  In ORC, you can replace it with Genetron 245fa. For medium-temperature stationary applications, replace 134a with Solstice ze.
Genetron® 22 R-22 As an HCFC, this product is being phased out globally. Honeywell recommends using Genetron Performax LT or one of the Solstice range products.
Genetron® 409A R-409A An interim replacement for R-12 in refrigeration systems. For low- and medium-temperature retrofits.
Genetron® AZ-50® R-507A This product has GWP of 3985. European Commission has a proposal to prohibit refrigerants with GWP > 2500 for servicing and maintaining commercial refrigeration equipment. Honeywell recommends selecting Genetron Performax LT or one of the Solstice products.
