HFC (Hydrofluorocarbon)

HFC as a refrigerant does not contribute to the breakdown of the ozone layer, but contributes to the greenhouse effect. HFC is an abbreviation of hydrofluorocarbon, and describe the molecules’ atom content.

R134a, R404A, R407C, and R507A are the most commonly used HFC refrigerants.

 

Main data:
ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) is a number that indicates the refrigerant’s effect on the ozone layer. R12 is used as index 1.0, and comparisons are made as a result.

GWP (Global Warming Potential) is a number that indicates the refrigerant’s effect on the greenhouse effect. CO2 is used as index 1.0, and comparisons are made as a result.
