Freon™ 95 (R-508B) Refrigerant

A Replacement Refrigerant for Very Low Temperature Applications

Freon™ 95 refrigerant sets the industry standard as a replacement for R-13 and R-503 refrigerants, and is endorsed by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Freon™ 95 ensures that medical freezers and environmental chambers can consistently maintain temperatures that range between -40 to -101 °C (-40 to -150 °F).

OEMs recommend using polyolester oils (POE) in systems retrofitted with Freon™ 95, which also carries a lower retrofit cost than R-23.

Features and Benefits

Freon™ 95 is a perfluorocarbon (PFC) based azeotropic blend comprised of R-23 and R-116 refrigerants. Benefits include:

  • An ASHRAE A1 classification
  • A significantly lower compressor discharge temperature vs. R-23, ensuring optimum system reliability for critical applications
  • 30% greater cooling capacity than R-13 and comparable performance characteristics to R-503
  • Zero ozone depletion potential (ODP)
