Which refrigerant is useful for which refrigeration system? Every operating company has to confront this question, as the choice has a major influence on your machine’s performance. There is no universal solution; each refrigerant has specific properties that make it suitable for its respective area of application. In our portfolio you will always find the ideal refrigerant.
‘In general, it is not possible to use every refrigerant for every application. It is therefore advisable for operating companies to work with the experts at ENGIE Refrigeration. Our specialists have plenty of know-how and can explain which refrigerant has the perfect properties for the application in question.’

Our refrigerants at a glance
What are the advantages of R-1234ze?
R-1234ze is a refrigerant with low flammability and a very low GWP value.
It meets the stipulations of the F-gas Regulation and is therefore not affected by the phase-down scenario.
The safety requirements are low and easy to implement.
The refrigerant is future-proof and has long-term availability.
In the case of R-1234ze, no CO2 equivalents are allocated to the amount of refrigerant put on the market – which makes the refrigerant especially sustainable.
What are the applications of R-1234ze?
Whether in chillers or heat pumps, R-1234ze is suitable for use in both systems.
With its exceptional thermodynamic properties, the refrigerant is a sustainable alternative to R-134a.
All the models in our QUANTUM series can be operated with R-1234ze.
What are the advantages of R-515B?
The greenhouse potential of R-515B is 77 per cent lower than that of the refrigerant R-134a.
Its safety level is A1 as per EN 378-1. This means that R-515B is a non-flammable safety refrigerant.
With a GWP value of 293 (IPCC-AR4) and 299 (IPCC-AR5), R-515B meets the requirements of the F-gas Regulation – until at least 2030.
Because the refrigerant is classified as A1, no additional safety measures are needed for the machine room containing the chiller or heat pump.
What are the applications of R-515B?
All air-cooled and water-cooled models in the QUANTUM series are available with the refrigerant R-515B as an alternative to the previous standard refrigerant R-1234ze.
The refrigerant is suitable for any application requiring optimal refrigeration capacity as well as an eco-friendly and sustainable refrigerant.
What are the advantages of R-513A?
Its safety level is A1 as per EN 378. This means that R-513A is a non-flammable safety refrigerant.
Of all the refrigerants, R-513A involves the fewest safety requirements for you.
It meets the requirements of the F-gas Regulation.
