The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute launched research project No. 8007, Material Compatibility and Lubricants Research for Low GWP Refrigerants.
The project will assess the long-term compatibility of low-GWP refrigerants HFO-1234yf, HFO-1234ze(E), and R-32, as well as lubricants, with the materials commonly used in air-conditioning and refrigeration systems.
The project started in March 1, and is scheduled to be complete within 11 months.
