Application Area:

It is mainly used to replace R12 and R134a refrigerants in refrigerators, freezers, and other small refrigeration equipment. Because R600a is flammable, it is usually only used in low-temperature refrigeration equipment with less liquid filling, and also commonly as a component in mixed refrigerants.

Storage and transportation (safety classification A3) :

The ambient temperature for the storage of the R600a product should not exceed 40 °C. Keep the storing place cool, ventilated and dry. It is strictly prohibited to stack the product to any height. It is strictly prohibited to store it in a closed environment. Keep it away from fire, power source, heat sources, and direct sunlight. Do not place among oxidative chemicals, corrosive substance or flammable and explosive materials. Fire-fighting equipment should be complete and readily available.
The safety cap must be screwed tight on the cylinder in transportation. The cylinder should be placed flat in general, with mouth to the same direction, instead of crisscrossing; its height should not exceed that of the fence of the vehicle and it should be secured with wooden wedges to prevent from rolling. It should be handled lights during loading and unloading to prevent from crushing and collision, and avoid damage to the cylinder and accessories such as valve, etc.

Refrigerating machine oil for R-600a:

Selection of refrigerating oil for the R600a refrigerant shall follow the recommendations of the refrigeration compressor and refrigeration (conditioning) equipment manufacturers, or be determined based on the specific conditions of the refrigeration compressor and refrigeration equipment, that is, using only the refrigerating oil that matches the equipment or its application purpose.
