Fluorocarbon refrigerants (also known as synthetic refrigerants, fluorine refrigerants and halocarbon refrigerants) are a wide group of products most commonly known as CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and HFOs
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) were introduced in the early 20th century, and quickly became established as the leading refrigerant solution. CFCs were thermodynamically efficient, and effective across a wide range of applications & operating temperatures.
Environmental concerns relating to ozone depletion and global warming has lead to legislative control and the development of successive new generations of fluorocarbon refrigerants, known as hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and hydrofluoro-olefins (HFOs).
The Linde Group does not manufacture fluorocarbon refrigerants, and instead sources bulk quantities from a number of leading chemical companies. Linde operates many bulk break and filling facilities around the world providing our customers with a variety of smaller volume packages to meet their specific needs.
Today, Linde Group companies stock an extremely wide range of HCFC and HFC products, and are able to help you make the choice on the best solution to meet the needs of your customer, and comply with local legislation and environmental concerns.
