Forane® 427A - the Easy Retrofit

Forane® 427A is the Easy Retrofit when it comes to retrofitting many R-22 applications, including air conditioning and low- and medium-temperature refrigeration.  Forane® 427A is closest match to R-22 in terms of performances and operating conditions and was developed to minimize the work necessary during an R-22 system retrofit.  Due to its similar behavior in operation and its close thermodynamic properties in comparison to R-22, Forane® 427A can be used in equipment designed for R-22 without requiring any changes to the installation (no need to change the expansion valves, liquid lines, condensing units or any other costly parts of your system).  Forane® 427A refrigerant is specifically designed to replace R-22 that is being phased out under the Montreal Protocol Agreement.  Millions of pounds have been sold globally since 2005.
