Updated on February 17, 2011

R410a refrigerant is latest buzz

R410A is the latest buzz in refrigerant market.By 2020 it will become most used refrigerant used in air conditioning systems because of the great number of advantages associated with it.The reason for its growing popularity is :

a) It is environment friendly as it does not contain any chemicals that can damage ozone.

b) It is possible to design small and more efficient cooling systems because less amount of this refrigerant is needed compared to R22 because of better heat transfer and low pressure drop.

Advantages of using r410a refrigerant :

  • Non flammable
  • Less toxicity
  • Non corrosive
  • Low cost
  • Near azeotropic
  • Operates on high pressure
  • Superior heat transfer
  • It can be used with steel,copper and brass.
  • Low installation cost
  • It produces negligible amount of sound
  • Small systems can be designed as less volume of refrigerant along with fewer number of colis are needed.
  • It is a popular choice for VRF systems.Vrfs are suitable for large number of building types.


The older airconditioning systems can not use R410a as it requires higher pressure.If used,it will damage the system by generating higher torqure and overloading the bearings.

Please buy new air conditioning systems designed to handle R410a as it will help save our environment.
