Opteon™ XP10 (R-513A), a Chemours low global warming potential refrigerant, has been selected by Dunham-Bush for use in its DCLCG series of high-efficiency, direct-driven VFD water-cooled centrifugal chillers, in the Asia Pacific market. As an azeotropic, nonflammable replacement for HFC-134a, Chemours Opteon™ XP10 offers more than 55 percent lower GWP, while maintaining comparable properties and performance.

Dunham-Bush is featuring its new high efficiency DCLCG chiller designed for Opteon™ XP10 in its exhibit at the China Refrigeration Show in Shanghai, China, in April. DB sources said that the new chiller “offers high efficiency, energy savings, high reliability and oil-free design for convenient maintenance for a wide range of applications.”

The Opteon™ portfolio of fluorochemicals from Chemours were developed to help meet increasingly stringent global regulations while generally maintaining or improving performance compared to the products they replace.
