Midea chooses Chemours refrigerant for unitary ac units in North America

The Chemours Company has announced its Opteon XL55 (R-452B) low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant has been chosen by China-based Midea for use in its unitary air-conditioning units designed for the North America market.  

Opteon XL55 offers over 65% lower GWP than R-410A, while yielding improved performance. Opteon XL55 is ASHRAE class 2L mildly flammable and has the lowest 2L flammability properties of leading R-410A replacements. This optimal combination of properties, particularly its design compatibility to R-410A equipment, gives Opteon XL55 a distinct advantage over other low GWP options.

The R&D team of Midea Group’s Central Air-Conditioning Division remarked that Opteon XL55 meets the performance requirements for unitary air-conditioning units for North America, and has a leading advantage in low GWP. Mingli Tian, general manager, Central Air-Conditioning Division of Midea Group said: “Opteon XL55 is the perfect low GWP refrigerant choice to make sure our products are compliant with environmental regulations. It will carry us far into the future with an environmentally sustainable offering for our customers.”

Meanwhile, Diego Boeri, vice president, Chemours Fluorochemicals, said: “We at Chemours are extremely pleased that Midea has selected Opteon XL55 for use in their unitary air-conditioning units.”
