Is air conditioner r32 refrigerant prone to explosion? Here is the answer

R32 refrigerant is a new type of refrigerant, which is widely used in air conditioners. The most concerned about r32 refrigerant is whether it will explode, so is air conditioner r32 refrigerant easy to explode? Let's get to know it now.


1. Is the air conditioner r32 refrigerant easy to explode?


R32 is a new type of energy-saving, environmentally friendly, non-toxic refrigerant. It has higher pressure than r410, faster cooling and better effect, so it has been widely used. The only disadvantage of R32 is that it is flammable and explosive, so it must be standardized during operation and cannot be mixed with air, otherwise the consequences will be unimaginable. But there is no need to panic. R32 is not easy to cause explosion and other safety issues in daily use. Like gas, R32 is still a safe refrigerant as long as it is used correctly.


2. Under what circumstances will air conditioner r32 refrigerant explode


a. During the production of R32 air conditioners, thousands of air conditioners are produced on the assembly line at the same time. If one or two air conditioners leak and encounter an open flame, a fire or explosion will obviously occur. Of course, there will be various explosion-proof and fire-proof measures on the production line;


b. If the air conditioner produced by unscrupulous manufacturers is unqualified and enters the market, after the user installs the air conditioner, R32 refrigerant will leak. R32 is a flammable refrigerant. If it encounters an open flame, the first cause is a fire, and if it is serious, it will directly explode.


c. When installing and maintaining the air conditioner, special attention should be paid to the fact that if the vacuum is not evacuated, the drain is directly used, and the refrigerant leaks, and the consequences can be imagined when encountering an open flame.


3. What is the operating pressure of the air conditioner with r32 refrigerant?


When the air conditioner uses R32 refrigerant, the low pressure is about 0.8MPa and the high pressure is about 2.7-2.8mpa. The chemical name of R32 is difluoromethane. It is a gas at room temperature and a colorless and transparent liquid under pressure. It is soluble in oil but insoluble in water. It has the characteristics of energy saving and environmental protection, and does not destroy the ozone layer. It has become a new star of modern refrigerants.

In summary, it can be seen that the air conditioner r32 refrigerant is not easy to explode as long as we use it correctly.
