Light, high-performance, non-toxic

Propane, also known as R290, is a natural refrigerant that is widely used in air conditioning and commercial refrigeration. It is a hydrocarbon that is present in nature, boasts excellent thermodynamic properties, and does not deplete the ozone layer. 

While it is non-toxic, its high flammability means that it must be handled with care and according to strict rules. In Europe, R290 is subject to charge limit of 150 g per machine. Above this, risk evaluation and certification become obligatory. For this reason, propane cannot be used in large refrigeration systems. 

Propane is therefore suitable for use in refrigerated cabinets with their own motor and small refrigerators like distributors and household fridges.




Propane’s key characteristics are:

High refrigeration power

An ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) of 0 and a GWP (Global Warming Potential) of only

Environmental compatibility

High energy efficiency, low cost

Ready availability at a low price
