Johnson Controls Advances Environmental Sustainability with Compatible Chiller Platforms

MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Johnson Controls is advancing its White House Council on Environmental Quality commitment by enhancing HFC product lines to be fully compatible with the non-flammable, low-GWP refrigerant – OpteonM XP10 (R-513A), manufactured by The Chemours Company. York centrifugal and screw chillers ranging from 125 to 6,000 tons (440 to 21,100 kW) are compatible with R-513A.

Chemours’ Opteon XP10 (R-513A) is a non-flammable (A1) azeotropic alternative to R-134a, providing 56 percent lower GWP and comparable performance. XP10 was commercialized as a part of a broad portfolio of Opteon refrigerants, which represent a breakthrough line of low-GWP solutions developed to help meet the current and proposed HFC regulations while maintaining or improving performance compared to incumbent products.

Johnson Controls takes a holistic approach to carbon emission reductions. While low-GWP refrigerants are important for the future, energy efficiency represents the greatest opportunity for true greenhouse gas emission reductions. Energy consumption represents as much as 95 percent of a chiller’s lifetime carbon emissions.

Johnson Controls will showcase this new offering at the AHR Expo in Orlando, Florida, Jan. 25-27. Visit the Johnson Controls booth at #1231.
