The report gives results of a preliminary evaluation of a new hydrofluoro-carbon (HFC-236ea or 1,1,1,2,3,3-hexafluoropropane) as a possible alternative for chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-114 (1,2-dichloro-1, 1,2,2-tetrafluoroethane) refrigerant in chillers and high-temperature industrial heat pumps. Evaluation tests included an examination of the flammability, stability, thermophysical properties, lubricant/refrigerant characteristics, materials compatibility, inhalation toxicity, and refrigeration performance. HFC-236ea was found to be an excellent alternative for CFC-114 refrigerant.
