Daikin America: Refrigerant Gas
For nearly 80 years, Daikin has been a leading producer of fluorine refrigerants.
As the industry faces the regulations to phase out Ozone Depleting Substances, known as the Montreal Protocol, Daikin has been at the forefront of the drive to provide environmental friendly refrigerants. In 1991, we began Asia’s first mass production of HFC-134a, and in 1996, we built the world’s first commercial scale plant of HFC-32.
Daikin is the only company in the world dedicated to manufacturing both air conditioning systems and refrigerants. With this unique situation, we continue to develop new refrigerants, which can raise energy efficiency on equipment and lessen the environmental impact. Daikin is committed to explore and adopt cutting-edge technology, in order to continually offer value-added and solution-based products and services to customers.
Used as a refrigerant for domestic and commercial air conditioning and heat pump applications. It can also be used for low and medium temperature refrigeration applications. R-407C is the recommended refrigerant for retrofit of R22 in domestic and commercial HVAC, providing the closest match in capacity and efficiency.
Daikin Creard R-407H is a new, cost-effective, high efficiency, lower GWP refrigerant gas for refrigeration contractors and distributors. Relying on proven traditional chemistry, it is built as a replacement for R-404A, R-507A, R-407A/F, R-22 and other high GWP refrigerant blends in medium temperature and low temperature refrigeration applications. Applicable to new systems and retrofits, and to all refrigeration applications such as commercial refrigeration racks, cold storage warehouses, walk-ins and standalones. Compared to R-404A, R-407H provides more cooling capacity, 6%-12% better energy efficiency, 62% reduction in GWP.

Retrofit – Information
With the phaseout of R-22, it is important to give customers an option to retrofit their equipment which may have years of working life remaining, to more economical alternatives.
Daikin developed a retrofit guide for contractors and distributors to address the replacement of R22 in domestic and light commercial HVAC and Heat Pump Systems with R-407C.
For R22 retrofits in Commercial refrigeration in both medium and low temperature, walk in coolers and freezers and remote condensers, we developed a retrofit guide to low GWP R-407H.
