Aqua Cooling’s range of R290 Hydrocarbon Propane chillers offer cooling capacities from 20kW to 210kW. With our hydrocarbon units you benefit from the latest chiller technology but with the knowledge that it’s utilising an eco-friendly refrigerant.
The R290 (propane) refrigerant used in our chiller range is 100% natural and has an extremely low GWP (Global Warming Potential) of just 3.
In comparison, commonly used refrigerants such as R134a and R410A have GWP’s of 1300 and 1980 respectively. R290 also has a zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential), making it completely non-toxic.
If you are looking for ammonia chillers, because of energy/toxicity concerns then our R290 propane chillers would be a good alternative.
Additionally, R290 refrigerant has very favourable thermodynamic characteristics which gives a high level of efficiency as well as the obvious environmental advantages and all at a competitive price point.
For clients working on projects in line with BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) guidelines, our propane refrigerant chiller range is ideal. BREEAM’s assessment method and systems set best practice for measuring the environmental performance of a building and trying to keep its energy requirements to a minimum. To this end, chiller and industrial refrigeration systems that are working on a 100% natural resource as refrigeration are a perfect solution.
