ORAFON HFC-23 is non ozone depleting HFC but keep very high Global Warming Potential. It’s also used in new equipment that works at very low temperatures (around -60 to -100 °C). It is also an indirect replacement (retrofit) for R-13 (It’s thermodynamic properties are very similar to R-13.) and R-503. They have used in applications, Industrial refrigeration plants (e.g. gas separation and chemical processing), Pharmaceutical production plants, For medicinal purposes (e.g. blood banks), Material testing, Cryomats and High vacuum.
ORAFON HFC-23 can be done either as a vapor or a liquid for charging. They compatible only with Polyolester (POE). POE oils absorb moisture quickly when left exposed to the atmosphere. Handle them carefully and avoid prolonged exposure to air.
