As part of its long-term refrigerant roadmap, Johnson Controls has announced two platforms of high efficiency chillers available with low GWP options. It has extended its
portfolio of YORK® chillers to include two product families that use the refrigerant alternative R-513A: YORK YVWA water-cooled screw chiller and YORK YMC2 magnetic bearing water-cooled centrifugal chiller. The offering covers a broad range from 433 to 3,516 kW (120 to 1,000 tons) for water-cooled applications. The company showcased these models at Chillventa trade show in Nuremberg, Germany in October. The work to develop and launch broad off erings using R-513A and to advance research on the use of mildly flammable refrigerants is part of the company’s overall environmental commitments to the White House Council on Environmental Quality. R-513A is a nonflammable (A1) azeotropic, high efficiency, low-GWP alternative refrigerant that reduces the direct refrigerant GWP by 56%. It was commercialized as a part of a broad portfolio of Opteon™ refrigerants, which were developed to help meet proposed HFC regulations such as the European F-gas regulation and the U.S. EPA SNAP ruling, while
maintaining or improving performance compared to incumbent products.
