Corrosion resistance is an important factor when choosing a refrigerant because corrosion causes refrigerant leaks - the number one mechanical problem in the HVAC & R industry
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA- Alltemp, Inc. (OTCQB: LTMP), a developer of proprietary, environmentally friendly refrigerant technologies, announced today the results of a corrosion study, comparing the efficacy of alltemp® refrigerant vs R-134a refrigerant. The company engaged Intertek to perform ANSI/ASHRAE 97 testing on alltemp®.
Intertek's evaluation of alltemp® refrigerant with POE NL32 POE lubricant was conducted per ANSI/ASHRAE 97 Issue: 2007/06/27 Sealed Glass Tube Method to Test the Chemical Stability of Material for Use within Refrigerant Systems.
Metal coupons were exposed to alltemp® for 14 days at 175°C +/-5°C. Property evaluations were conducted by the following procedures: TAN per ASTM D974, Refrigerant Breakdown per AHRI 700, and Dissolved Metals per ASTM D5185.
Observations after 14 days:
When compared to a control sample of R-134a, the alltemp® refrigerant was observed as: "Clear/colorless liquid, no precipitate or insoluble material. All metal coupons remain unchanged. No Copper Plating or corrosion was observed."
Intertek conducted a full ANSI/ASHRAE 97 test indicating that there were almost zero changes in the chemical properties of alltemp®. Test results indicated that alltemp®'s Total Acid Number (mgKOH/g) was <0.01, Refrigerant Decomposition (Mass%) <0.05, Dissolved Al <1.0, Dissolved Cu <1.0, and Dissolved Fe <1.0. These results continue to prove that alltemp® is a non-corrosive alternative to conventional refrigerants.
“The study reflects our commitment to producing the best refrigerant, in economic and environmental terms, and the data becomes increasingly valuable in yielding actionable insights for a wide variety of refrigerant dependent businesses. We’re firm in our belief that alltemp®’s resistance to corrosion is a major value driver, because refrigerant leaks, caused by corrosion, are the most pressing mechanical problem in the HVAC & R industry. Frankly, reducing corrosion not only improves economic and environmental performance, but, possibly most important to most users, it should improve quality control and overall user experience," said William Lopshire, Alltemp CEO.
