Abstract The report gives results of a preliminary evaluation of a new hydrofluoro-carbon (HFC)--HFC-236fa or 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoropropane--asa possible alternative for chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-114 (1,2-dichloro-1, 1,2,2-tetrafluoroethane) refrigerant for chillers and asa possible fire suppressant replacement for halon-1301 (bromotrifluoromethane). Evaluation tests included an examination of flammability, stability, atmospheric lifetime, thermophysical properties, lubricant miscibility and solubility, materials compatibility, inhalation toxicity, refrigerant performance, heat transfer characteristics, and flame suppression.
