Refrigerants for Retail Food & Convenience Stores

Fresh Foods with Fewer Drawbacks

Whether in the local gas station or the largest supermarket, high-performance Opteon™ refrigerants address the varied needs of the retail food sector while keeping perishable goods safe, attractive, and in peak condition. Display coolers, island freezers, wall chillers, beer caves, rack systems and remote condensers all benefit from the efficient and dependable service delivered by Opteon™ hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) refrigerants.

With new regulatory requirements driving changes in grocery refrigeration, Opteon™ products provide the right combination of environmental benefits—zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP)—as well as improved cooling capacity and reduced indirect (secondary) emissions due to power consumption.

Like legacy HFC refrigerants, low GWP Opteon™ refrigerants are easy to install and maintain and don’t require complicated system architectures like ammonia and CO₂. Moreover, they offer lower total emissions, lower lifecycle costs, and superior energy efficiency to many alternative refrigerants.
