R600a is the common name for high purity isobutane (C4H10) suitable for use in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry. It is also known as CARE® 10. The product typically is at least 99.5% pure with minimal levels of critical impurities including moisture and unsaturated hydrocarbons. This makes it ideal for use in all types of refrigeration systems.
•Zero ozone depletion potential
•Very low global warming potential (<20)*
•Excellent thermodynamic properties leading to high energy efficiency
•Good compatibility with components
•Low charges allowing smaller heat exchangers and piping dimensions
R600a has a number of applications. It is most suited to high and medium temperature applications. The most common applications are for use in domestic refrigeration (refrigerators and freezers), with over 250 million units using the product. Other applications include small display cabinets and vending machines.
