Replacing flammable πŸ”₯ R32 with non-flammable  R410A

Introduction

Space Air Ltd (Space AirR is a Registered Trading name) is a distributor of Air Conditioning equipment & have always abided by the current local & International Standards and Health & Safety Standards to provide SAFE & legal SOLUTIONS since its inception on 1st August 1980.  see Space Air 30 years

Facts

"Having low GWP but being A2L class πŸ”₯ flammable (like R32 as a single component) defeats the objective reason of protecting the environment IF leaked, while creating a fire risk!!"

UK Government Study: of the impact of high GWP 

A1 class  non-flammables refrigerants (e.g. R410A) in Heat Pumps concluded that the carbon benefit of displacing fossil fuels was around 17 times higher than the impact of refrigerant leaks. without the risks, cost and uncertainty of A2L class πŸ”₯ flammable refrigerants future (e.g. R32)

 

πŸ”₯ R32 backgrounds or The MESS!

In 2015 Daikin Industries / DENV Europe re-introduced a range of AC & Heat Pumps equipment (small splits - previousley used A1 class  non-flammable refrigerant since 1928) containing πŸ”₯ HFC R32 an A2L class flammable refrigerant as a single component for the 1st time in the DX cycle used by air conditioning equipment.By 2017/2018 Daikin and other licensed manufacturers withdrew small splts (charged with less than 3kg) equipment that used A1 class non-flammable refrigerant R410A, a well established safe refrigerant in the AC industry for over 25 years,  AND earlier than F-gas ban on >750 GWP)

 

- Refrigerants safety classes

 Refrigerant Classification as per International Standards ISO 817 & ASHRAE 34 (see more)

                      

IMPORTANT NOTE: Refrigerants are controlled substances due to high pressures, extremely low and high temperature, toxicity & flammability:
MUST only be handled by qualified Certified Refrigeration Engineers with F-Gas A1 class refrigerant and with extra qualification if flammable refrigerant (A2L or A3 class)

Reference

Refrigerant classification
There are over 300 types of refrigerants in THREE Safety Classifications with regards to flammability, in accordance with ISO 817:2014 (E) & ASHRAE34 International Standard clearly indicate that: 
               A1 class non-flammable, A2/A2L flammableπŸ”₯ & A3 Highly flammable/Explosive πŸ”₯πŸ’₯

2 Greenwashing
"Greenwashing is a deceptive form of marketing that claims a company's products, policies and goals are environmentally friendly and therefore do less damage to nature, with an underlying purpose to increase profits"

5Business Cartel ; Daikin Industries/ Chemical have patented (aprox3 00+ patents) A2L flammable πŸ”₯R32 refrigerant and components used in small splits air conditioning equipment and licensed the patents to Japanese manufacturers (such as Mitsubishi Electric, Fugitsu, Toshiba, etc), Korean manufacturers (LG & Samsung) & Chinese AC manufacturers, conditional on withdrawing current R410A non-flammable in small splits (refrigerant charge less than 3kg) and not mentioning that R32 is flammable πŸ”₯ in their promotional materials or website. This has been applied to UK & and some EU but not the rest of the world. Daikin is an international manufacturer and claim meeting international standards & safety obligations. R410A is an A1 class non-flammable refrigerant is the dominant refrigerant in the world while πŸ”₯ R32 has been since 2015.
