When you walk into a giant freezer or merely use the one above your refrigerator, do you ever stop and wonder about the process that goes into keeping your items cool? Of course not unless you are like us, and intimately close to the entire process. Here at C&M Coolroom Services, we fully believe in the power of knowledge and what it can to for our potential customers. With that mindset, we are going to take a moment to peak all-the-way inside of our refrigerating units in order to discuss the refrigerants that make the process possible. Specifically, our discussion today will be focused on how CFC-free refrigerants can benefit you, us, and the world around us.
Refrigerants: What Are They And Why CFC-Free Is the Way to Go?
We are going to open up our discussion by analysing the core subject: refrigerants. Most people know only that their freezers and refrigerators function, and that is enough for them. However, their luxurious appliances would not be able to function without the use of refrigerant!
1. What Is Refrigerant? – Refrigerant is a substance, typically liquid, which helps to cool down your appliance. These liquids undergo a transformation from liquid to gas and back again in order to accomplish this task.
When discussing refrigerants, people within the industry will be quick to point out one of the most problematic materials involved: CFC. CFC refrigerants became incredibly commonplace throughout the world starting back in the early 20th Century. However, despite their commonplace use, there was a larger problem at hand. Extensive research has revealed that CFC refrigerant is a chemical that should no longer be used. Why is that?
2. CFC Refrigerant – Despite being low in toxicity in relation to our breathing, CFC refrigerant is immensely damaging to the environment. CFC damages the Ozone layer and contributes directly to the destruction of our environment!
Benefits of CFC-Free Refrigerant
Understanding that CFC refrigerant is bad for our world will allow you to understand why the chemical has been phased out of every major industry. We no longer use CFC refrigerant and are now focused on more environmentally friendly and economically beneficial refrigerant compounds. What you’ll find in most modern appliances is something called HFC, or HydroFluoroCarbon. What is HFC? We’re glad that you asked!
3. Benefits Of HFC Refrigerant – HFC is free of chlorine, the chemical that causes damage to our Ozone layer. HFC can be found in products all around the world and it is the only chemical being used on new, legal, productions.
