Freon™ Refrigerants for R-22 Retrofit Refrigeration Systems

Keeping Medium- and High-Temperature Refrigeration Systems Running Safely

Many medium- and high-temperature stationary commercial refrigeration and chiller systems use R-22 refrigerant. As regulations require phasing out R-22, a service call for routine maintenance, recharge, or system leak repair is typically the right time to retrofit the system with a new refrigerant. Retrofitting condensed units and commercial, rooftop, or residential systems can reduce future maintenance needs and potential expenses.

Retrofitting is an especially valuable service for:

  • Systems with little or no refrigerant charge
  • Systems requiring component replacement
  • Environmentally conscious customers seeking non-ozone depleting refrigerants
