Floron R22 Gas
R22 is a single component HCFC refrigerant that has historically been used for air conditioning, medium temperature and low temperature refrigeration. R22 causes ozone depletion and as a result is subject to legislation that is phasing down its use in Australia. R22 will still be available until 2030 and can be obtained as a recycled product (AHRI 700 standard) from A-Gas.
R22 is a single HydroChloroFluoroCarbon (HCFC) compound. It has low chlorine content and ozone depletion potential and a modest global warming potential. ODP1) = 0.05 and GWP2) = 1700
R22 can be used in small heat pump systems, but new systems can not be manufactured for use in the EU after 2003. From 2010 only recycled or saved stocks of R22 can be used. It will no longer be manufactured.
