R290 refrigeration technology

Commercial and industrial refrigeration units for high, medium and low temperature applications.

INTARCON has numerous solutions in R290 refrigeration technology, a natural, environmentally friendly and efficient refrigerant.

Commonly known as propane gas, R290 is a class A3 natural refrigerant with a low environmental impact. It is a pure substance, with no evaporation slip and high thermodynamic efficiency. This refrigerant is low toxicity, but has a high flammability. Also, this refrigeration technology can be incorporated into any commercial or industrial system or equipment, although their application in Europe is regulated by regulations on refrigerant charge limits depending on their application and place of installation.

Refrigeration units

  • Natural and environmentally friendly refrigeration. It is a natural refrigerant with a low global warming potential (GWP = 3).
  • Conforms to EN378 and F gas.
  • Thanks to the thermodynamic properties of R290, its efficiency is high. In addition, their smaller displacement compressors further increase efficiency in industrial equipment.
  • Its thermodynamic properties and high efficiency maximise energy efficiency in the electrical consumption of equipment, resulting in an economical refrigerant.

R290 refrigeration technology have the next advantages:

  • Energy efficiency. Thanks to the thermodynamic properties and high performance, your electricity consumption will be lower and therefore, there will be a reduction in electricity costs.
  • Climate adaptability. R290 gas has been shown to be better adapted to hot climates than HFCs.
  • Their lower displacement compressors increase efficiency in industrial equipment, but their performance in commercial equipment is also high.
  • Wide range of applications. R290 refrigerant is totally valid in systems and equipment of both, commercial and industrial character.
  • Good compatibility with other components.
  • Reduced charge of R290 refrigerant, which produces the same performance as other refrigerants at only 40%.
  • Long-term environmentally friendly alternative. Although there is a valid regulation, it is a natural gas, which has been well received in the refrigerant market.

INTARCON has a wide range of products adapted to R290 refrigeration technology, which incorporate kiconex system. In addition, we have a technical advice service to find alternative solutions to your needs.
