Why Hydrocarbon Refrigerants

Why Hydrocarbon Refrigerants

Hydrocarbon is an organic compound consisting entirely of hydrogen and carbon.

Hydrocarbons are one of the natural refrigerants avilable

Naturally occurring, non-synthetic substances that can be used as cooling agents in refrigerators and air conditioners are now preferred due to their ozone layer- and climate – friendly properties.

Why are Hydrocarbons so Efficient?

There are several reasons why Hydrocarbon Refrigerants are more efficient than Chemical Refrigerants.

  • The thermal efficiency of Hydrocarbon Refrigerants is far better than Chemical refrigerants.
  • The density of Hydrocarbon Refrigerants is approximately half that of Chemical Refrigerants.
  • It is not necessary to raise the pressure or temperature of Hydrocarbon Refrigerants to the same level as Chemical Refrigerants in order to ensure good condensation.
  • Hydrocarbon Refrigerants have better/higher critical temperatures.
