All refrigerant dryers from Kaeser Compressors will use the new R-513A refrigerant by the end of 2019. It is climate-friendly and provides users with peace of mind when it comes to future-proof operation. The use of small volumes of the future-proof R-513A refrigerant provides security of supply for maintenance work throughout the entire life of the refrigeration dryer. • The use of greenhouse gases is becoming ever more strictly regulated throughout the world. Installation of highly compact heat exchangers – such as SECOPACK LS and microchannel condensers – considerably reduces refrigerant demand. • The greenhouse gas potential of R-513A is significantly lower compared to the refrigerants that have commonly been used in refrigeration dryers up until now. • R-513A is equivalent to R-134a. It is neither toxic nor flammable. • Anybody using refrigeration drying in compressed air treatment is required to comply with the F-gas regulation. The new EU 517/2014 directive represents the end for certain refrigerants that are still currently used in these dryers. Nearly every compressed air station uses refrigeration dryers, since most applications require these machines to deliver a dep...
