DURACOOL Refrigerants Inc. guarantees that
DURACOOL® products will perform as efficient refrigerants, and will not harm any air-conditioning or refrigeration components and equipment if used in accordance with the manufacturers directions and instructions.

Pressure vs Temperature



DURACOOL 12a® requires only 35% of the charge, by weight, of CFC-12 (R-12), or 40% of the charge, by weight of HFC-134a (R-134a). DURACOOL 22a® and DURACOOL 502a® require only 40% of the charge, by weight, of R-22 and R-502, respectively. This is interpreted as follows:

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DURACOOL® AND HFC-134a
DURACOOL®
HFC-134a
Negligible Global Warming Potential (GWP) = 8 Global Warming
-GWP=1300 (USEPA)
-GWP=3200 (Greenpeace)
Non-Ozone Depleting Non-Ozone Depleting
Organic materials only Synthetic, man-made chemicals
Compatible with mineral and synthetic oils
  • Operates with Synthetic oils ONLY.
  • Not compatible with Mineral oils.
  • Synthetic oils are highly hygroscopic.
    Energy Efficient Energy inefficient, even compared with CFC-12
    Non-corrosive
      HFC-134a MSDS sheets disclose:
    "Contact with certain metals (aluminum..zinc..) may cause a violent reaction or explosion"
    "Incompatible..[with].. freshly abraded aluminum ( may cause strong exothermic reactions)."
    Lower operating head pressure High operating head pressure, even compared with CFC-12
    Non-Toxic
      HFC-134a MSDS sheets disclose:
    "This product is harmful by inhalation" and
    "this product may cause cardiac sensitization" and
    "Hazardous Decomposition Products: halogens, halogen acids, and possibly carbonyl halides, such as phosgene. These are toxic and corrosive". and
    "Individuals with preexisting diseases of the central nervous system or cardiovascular system may have increased susceptibility to the toxicity of excessive exposures."
    Adds life to air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment Extensive evidence of multiple equipment (particularly compressors) failures.

    DURACOOL® products are extremely efficient.
