|Chemical Name||Difluoromethane and Pentafluoroethane|
|Chemical Formula||CH2F2 (50%) and CHF2CF3 (50%)|
R410A is an HFC blend designed for new R22 applications. It operates at higher pressures than many other refrigerants, and so cannot be used to retrofit R22 systems. Systems designed for R410A can take advantage of its ability to use smaller components, making it a key refrigerant for domestic and light air conditioning equipment. R410A’s low glide also makes it suitable for some centrifugal compressors, and it can operate in low temperature applications.
Precautions to be taken in handling: Keep away from sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Protect cylinders from damage. Do not drag, slide, roll or drop cylinders. Slowly open valve. Close cylinder valve after each use and keep closed even when cylinder is empty. Never apply heat or flame to any part of cylinder. Avoid inhalation of high concentration of vapors. Avoid contact between liquid and skin and eyes.
