Type : HFC (Hydrofluorocarbons)
R32 refrigerant is also known as difluoromethane (CH2F2.) and belongs to the HFC family of refrigerant.
It is increasingly gaining favour as a low temperature refrigerant and as a replacement gas in some R410A applications due to its low GWP, providing a lower carbon footprint than most other HFCs.
R32 uses 78% lesser refrigerant to operate compared to R-410A. Most newer products in Japan have been phasing in this refrigerant since 2013. This gas is categorized under flammability level A2( ISO 817:2014) hence care has to be taken when using this gas.
It is very close to R-410A in terms of operating conditions and performance. Both refrigerants are using Polyolester (POE) oil.
R32 is not a retrofit gas. It is suitable for new equipment designed for R32 in applications that commonly use R410A.
Due to its designated flammable and therefore is not suitable as a drop-in retrofit replacement for R410A.
