Variable Refrigerant Flow.
It varies the compressor speed in order to match the system heating/cooling requirement.
To act an energy efficient capacity controller.
Via a series of signals that are reported throughout the system i.e. room temperature requirement, refrigerant pressures and temperatures.
R410A is by far the most common, used for its high efficiency, zero ozone depleting potential and zero toxicity. R134A is also used in our high temperature water heating product, PWFY BU.
They've been chosen by our industry as the most acceptable for use with commercial air conditioning equipment. The actual refrigerant depends on usage, capacity and age of the equipment.
R22 - R22 an HCFC, was used an efficient substance to replace earlier CFC refrigerants, but is now being phased out. For more information go to legislation, R22 phase out.
R407C - R407C an HFC, adopted as R22 was being phased out due to ozone depleting potential. This was an interim refrigerant before another suitable refrigerant was found.
R410A - R410A is another HFC, but has higher pressure and temperature than R407C and is common on air conditioning today.
ODP stands for Ozone Depleting Potential. This indicates the amount of potential damage if released to the atmosphere. Originating from scientists concerns that the hole in the ozone layer was contributing to global warming.
HFC is a HydroFluroCarbon, practically non-toxic and non-flammable. It has a good energy performance and zero ODP. Specifically developed to replace HCFC's such as R22.
An HC is a HydroCarbon such as propane or isobutance could be considered an ideal replacement for air conditioning applications. As with all HydroCarbons, it has zero ODP, but is potentially explosive and is therefore only sold to trained operators.
Refrigerant types have different working pressures. R410A for example, has pressures approximately 1.6 times that of R407c.
There is no direct connection. Both were founded as separate Mitsubishi companies, Mitsubishi Electric in 1921 and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries later in 1934
