Freon™ 124 (R-124) Refrigerant

An R-114 Replacement Refrigerant for Centrifugal Chillers

Freon™ 124 (R-124) refrigerant is a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) retrofit replacement for R-114 used in centrifugal chillers and high-ambient cooling applications, including overhead cranes.

Used with alkylbenzene (AB) lubricants, general applications for Freon™ 124 include extending the life of R-114 chillers and retrofitting R-114 in certain types of positive displacement equipment.

Features and Benefits

When Freon™ 124 replaces R-114 in existing equipment, systems may gain higher refrigeration capacity. However, engineering modifications may be required. Consult your original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for specific guidance.

Freon™ 124 is nonflammable, with an ASHRAE A1 safety classification. Contact us for additional information.

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.
