Introducing Solstice® N71 (R-471A)

Solstice® N71 (R-471A) is Honeywell’s newest non-ozone depleting, non-flammable, HFO based refrigerant, which helps our customers lower their carbon footprint and improve energy efficiency without sacrificing end-product performance. It’s the only < 150 GWP, non-flammable HFO refrigerant blend for new equipment in medium temperature applications.

Refrigerant of choice for new systems across wide applications

Optimal for commercial and industrial direct expansion refrigeration, Solstice® N71 (R-471A) is applicable for new systems, across various applications, including:

  • Supermarkets
  • Cold Storage Warehouses
  • Industrial Process Refrigeration
  • Ice Rinks
  • Convenience & Drug Stores

Given its distinct benefits over R-404A and CO2, Solstice N71 (R-471A) is an optimal choice to:

  1. Meet your sustainability goals: Honeywell’s Solstice N71 (R-471A) refrigerant is an environmentally preferable solution that will enable a more sustainable future. With GWP <150, Solstice N71 (R-471A) is a low-pressure refrigerant – driving lower leak rates and is compliant with AIM & CARB regulations. Further, because Solstice N71 (R-471A) is over 30%* more energy efficient as compared to CO2, helping you reduce your overall CO2 footprint (scope 1 and scope 2 emissions) and conserve natural resources to create a healthier living environment for people everywhere.
  2. Ease your installation and maintenance process: Solstice N71 (R-471A) offers the ability to use a “Business as usual” Direct Expansion Rack System – which utilizes well-accepted, traditional technology. In contrast to CO2 based system deployments, which demand specialized skills and capabilities, Solstice N71 (R-471A) refrigeration systems follow standard installation and service practices, requiring no elite skillset and experience. Besides installation, the handling, storage, and transportation is same as any low-pressure nonflammable refrigerant. So, whether it’s installation, maintenance, or service of a Solstice N71 (R-471A) refrigeration system, you have easy access to experienced and skilled engineers to do it for you.
  3. Lower your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO): With Solstice N71 (R-471A) you save on energy cost, and because it utilizes conventional refrigeration equipment and practices, you don’t end up paying a premium for deployment and services. Further, it eliminates risk of any catastrophic failure, which assures no breaking the bank to meet unexpected expenses related to these failures. You stand to benefit on both a CAPEX and OPEX front.
