Environmentally Friendly Refrigerant Gas PCFE

Concern for our environment is growing and it is up to all of us to make a change.

Perth Commercial Fridges and Equipment want to be part of this positive change, hence we are looking at our commercial kitchen products and how we can further improve our range.

Don’t worry, we are still offering you the very best commercial kitchen equipment in Australia, but we know we must be as environmentally responsible as possible and that means improving some of the products we offer as global changes occur.

We are Switching To Eco-Friendly Refrigerant Gases

Older models of refrigerators and freezers tend to use hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants. However, these common refrigerant gases really aren’t very kind to our planet.

That is why we are switching to R290 and R600 units. These new commercial fridges and freezers use hydrocarbon gas, a highly refined propane, the most environmentally friendly option on the market. 

So, what are the benefits of using eco-friendly gases?

Easy To Dispose Of

Compared to their refrigerant gas cousins, hydrocarbon is much easier to recycle and dispose of after its usages in our cooling systems – such as fridges and commercial freezers.

Energy Efficient

These green refrigerant gases are far more energy efficient than less eco-friendly gases, with a cooling effect four times greater than hydrofluorocarbon refrigerants. This overall improvement of your cooling units and their performance means you can reduce your energy consumption and save a few dollars in the process.

They Are Non-Toxic

Toxins and harmful chemicals don’t have a place in our businesses. Both R290 and R600 are natural gases that can be obtained as by-products of other processes. They are far less harmful to our environment and when handled with the right care are completely safe.

Lower Carbon Footprint

These hydrocarbon refrigerant gases have a lower impact on the environment and produce 45% less CO2 than other commonly used refrigerant gases. These natural, green gases have one of the lowest Global Warming Potential scores, with both R290 and R600 having a GWP of three – CO2 has one of the lowest ratings of just one, that’s how environmentally friendly these gases are.

Many cooling systems leak by-products into the atmosphere. However, these new gases are easily recycled preventing any refrigerant gases from being left in the atmosphere.

In short, you save money, and the environment gets a bit of a well-deserved break.
