Genetron® 507 has been developed by Honeywell to serve as a long-term
replacement for Genetron® 502 (CFC-502). An azeotropic mixture of HFC-125 and
HFC-143a, Genetron® 507 is an environmentally safer, non-ozone depleting
substitute for R-502 in low- and medium-temperature refrigeration
Genetron® 507 has an excellent performance fit in commercial refrigeration
applications such as supermarket display cases, refrigerated transport and ice
making machines. However, it also has the potential to deliver a long-term,
highly energy efficient solution in some low- to medium-temperature industrial
refrigeration applications. When applied to those systems it can be used as a
replacement for both Genetron® 502 and Genetron® 22 (HCFC-22).
Genetron® 507 is suitable both for new equipment and for retrofitting
refrigeration systems previously using Genetron® 502. In these applications
experience has shown that there will be few if any design changes needed to
optimize Genetron® 507 performance in these applications.
