Resulting design criteria / Converting existing plants

Compared to R114, the alternatives have lower boiling temperatures (approx. -10°C), which results in larger differences in the pressure levels and volumetric refrigerating capacities. This leads to stronger limitations in the application range at high evaporating and condensing temperatures.

Converting an existing installation will in most cases necessitate the exchange of the compressor and control devices. Owing to the lower volume flow (higher volumetric refrigerating capacity), adjustments to the evaporator and the suction line may be required.
