Fluorine Refrigerants (also known as synthetic refrigerants, fluorocarbon refrigerants and halocarbon refrigerants) are a wide group of products most commonly known as CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and HFOs
CFCs were introduced in the early 20th century, and quickly became established as the leading refrigerant solution. CFCs were thermodynamically efficient, and effective across a wide range of applications & operating temperatures.
However environmental concerns relating to ozone depletion and global warming has led to legislative control and the development of successive new generations of fluorine refrigerants, known as HCFCs, HFCs and HFOs.
Messer does not manufacture fluorine-based refrigerants, and instead sources bulk quantities from several leading chemical companies. Messer operates a Canadian facility that handles bulk break and filling providing our customers with a variety of smaller volume packages to meet their specific needs.
Today, Messer maintains an inventory of an extremely wide range of HCFC, HFC and HFO products, and are able to help you make the choice on the best solution to meet the needs of your customer and comply with local legislation and environmental concerns.
