TYPE : HFC (Hydrofluorocarbons)
R134a is also known as Tetrafluoroethane (CF3CH2F),a non-flammable gas from the HFCs refrigerant family.
With the discovery of the damaging effect of CFCs and HCFCs refrigerants to the ozone layer, the HFCs family of refrigerant has been widely used as their replacement. It is safe for normal handling as it is non-toxic, non-flammable and non-corrosive.
R134a is also common refrigerant used in a wide range of refrigeration and air conditioning applications, including medium and high temperature refrigeration (both domestic and commercial), residential & light air conditioning, automotive air conditioning and industrial applications such as centrifugal chillers. It is also a common component in many HFCs refrigerant blends and is used in some propellant applications.
It is now being used as a replacement for the more environmentally harmful R-12 refrigerant in nowadays.
