Comparing refrigerant gas R134a and R600a, they have the following difference.
We come up with the question, can R134a replace R600a?
1. Different performance
Both R134a and R600a are fluorine-free refrigeration systems. R134a is currently the mainstream refrigerant generally used internationally. It has stable performance, safety, non-toxicity, and does not damage the atmosphere.
R600A refrigerant is a refrigerant with excellent performance, which is characterized by strong cooling capacity, low power consumption, and slow load temperature recovery. It is a colorless gas at room temperature and a colorless and transparent liquid under its own pressure. It is a substitute for R12.
2. Different costs
R600a is inferior in safety, is flammable and explosive, posing a threat to personal safety; low cost, manufacturers use it to save the cost of refrigerators; maintenance is difficult, pipe welding cannot use commonly used gas welding equipment, but must use special ultrasonic welding equipment .
R134a has better heat transfer performance than R 12, and the amount of refrigerant can be greatly reduced. It is a colorless gas at room temperature and a colorless and transparent liquid under its own pressure. It is a substitute for R12.
3. Different applications
R600a: Mainly exists in natural gas, refinery gas and cracked gas. It is obtained by physical separation, etc. It can also be obtained by isomerization of n-butane. It is mainly used to make isooctane by hydrocarbonification with isobutylene, as a gasoline octane improver. It can also be used as a refrigerant.
R134a: Mainly used in most areas where R12 refrigerant is used, including: refrigerators, freezers, water dispensers, automobile air conditioners, central air conditioners, dehumidifiers, cold storage, commercial refrigeration, ice water machines, ice cream machines, refrigeration units and other refrigeration equipment in.
