Let’s Talk About Flammability Risks and A2Ls

Nov. 8, 2022
Not all low-GWP refrigerants have the same safety risk profile. Learn more...

You’ve likely been reading more these days about Hyrdofluorolefin (HFOs), the next generation low-GWP refrigerant solution. As with any new technology, there will always be several important aspects to consider and the topic of flammability has received a lot of attention related to A2L refrigerants.

Here are a few key facts to understand about HFOs:

·        There are several parameters that determine flammability including minimum ignition energy and flame velocity.

·         Flame propagation and accidental ignition are less likely to occur with A2Ls than A3s. 

·         A2Ls are less likely to form flammable concentrations: another reason why they are inherently safer than A3s. 

Learn more in this brief video that covers flammability factors in low-GWP refrigerants.

You can learn even more in this webinar Ride the Refrigerant Webinar.
