St. Cloud Refrigeration knew the community ice rink at Mars Lakeview Arena would soon need a refrigerant replacement, so they retrofit the legacy R-22 chiller system to a streamlined DX design running on Chemours’ low GWP refrigerant Opteon™ XP40 (R-449A).
Converting the system to Opteon™ XP40 had several environmental and cost savings benefits:
- Converted system uses about half as much refrigerant as before
- Unlike R-22, the XP40 is both non-ozone depleting and has a low global warming potential
- Upgraded system used less energy in the months after conversion, leading to cost savings and reducing the total carbon footprint of the arena
