An R-12 Refrigerant Replacement
Global regulatory mandates require the phase-out of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) refrigerants like R-12 refrigerant and CFC/hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) replacement blends.
Freon Hot Shot™ 2 (R-417C) refrigerant is a non-ozone depleting, hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) replacement for these refrigerants. Freon Hot Shot™ 2 can be used in most applications to retrofit systems currently using R-12 or R-12 blends, including:
Features and Benefits
Retrofitted systems that use Freon Hot Shot™ 2 refrigerant don't require a costly, time-consuming oil change because the refrigerant is compatible with all compressor oils. Nonflammable and with low toxicity, the direct replacement Freon Hot Shot™ 2 provides other benefits, including:
- Compatibility with mineral, alkylbenzene, and POE oils
- Zero ozone depletion potential (ODP)
- Widespread availability
Regulations on the long-term use of refrigerants vary by region and application, and may change over time. For the latest information, visit the Regulations page.
