HFO-1234ze news

On January 30, 2011, HFO-1234ze, was accepted for use in foam and aerosol applications by the US EPA. HFO-1234ze (GWP = 6) is already used in Europe and Japan in a variety of foam and aerosol applications.
Klima-Therm and Cool-Therm, the distributors of the Turbomiser high-efficiency chiller, have agreed to put development of its HFO-1234ze version on hold only a week after its commercialization until it has sorted out warranty and sales issues with Danfoss Turbocor, the manufacturer of the compressor used. Danfoss Turbocor confirmed that it was premature to commercialize Turbocor products with HFO-1234ze. Additional testing will be conducted.
