The Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) has presented its research findings of low-global warming potential alternative refrigerants.

The three-year program involved 20 technical experts iinvestigating 38 refrigerants of low global warming potential (low-GWP) against baseline refrigerants such as R-22, R-134a, R404A and R410A which are in common use.

The low GWP refrigerants were either single components or blends.

The results showed that their GWP values “were significantly lower than their baseline refrigerants,” said Karim Amrane, AHRI’s vice president of regulatory policy and research.

The refrigerants were tested in a range of systems, including air conditioners, heat pumps and chillers.

The results of the test reports issued to date are available on AHR’s website, click here.
