DewGas R438A

Home air conditioner Gas R438A

R438A is a HFC blend, used as a replacement for R22 in domestic, industrial and commercial air-conditioning systems. It is also a retrofit replacement for R22 in low, medium and high temperature refrigeration applications and DX chiller systems.

R-438A has an ASHRAE safety classification of A1 (non-flammable) and similar pressure temperature-enthalpy characteristics to R-22, making it suitable for use in existing R-22 equipment over a wide range of evaporator temperatures with no rerating or safety reclassification of the equipment.

  • R438A is a Zeotropic refrigerant. Therefore it must be charged in the liquid phase to prevent fractionation.
  • Several compressor oils can be used with the R438A, so it is probably not necessary to change the oil previously used in the equipment.
