refrigerant is a substance or mixture, usually a fluid, used in a heat pump and refrigeration cycle. In most cycles it undergoes phase transitions from a liquid to a gas and back again. Many working fluids have been used for such purposes. Fluorocarbons, especially chlorofluorocarbons, became commonplace in the 20th century, but they are being phased out because of their ozone depletion effects. Other common refrigerants used in various applications are ammonia, sulfur dioxide, and non-halogenated hydrocarbons such as propane.

Refrigeration & Air Conditioning technologies have thrived and become commonplace built upon the solid foundation of safe and efficient working fluids. However, regulations relating to the production of chlorine-containing refrigerants which deplete stratospheric ozone, means that the industry faces a number of years of unprecedented change. In order to effectively serve societies’ need for refrigeration, long term and transitional replacement products have been developed for new applications and for the servicing of installed equipment. Whatever the needs of the customer, Atee & Co is there to help.
