What is Cold 12 and Cold 134A

This is a proprietary mixture of natural compounds made from high purity hydrocarbon gases from British Oxygen Co : Propane (R-290) and Isobutane R600a)

COLD contains a stench chemical (odorant ethyl mercaptan - recommended at 25 mg/kg)

COLD 12 and Cold 134 are designed for the automobile market as follows:

COLD 12's boiling temperature is -31.5oC and was designed as an CFC-12 replacement in all CFC-12 applications -used in older cars

COLD 134 boiling temperature is -30.5oC was designed as an HFC-134 replacement in all HFC-134 applications. It is used in new cars and directly replaces HFC-134a

What are the Benefits of using Cold 12 & Cold 134A?

They are direct drop in replacements

They do not require redesigning of the refrigeration system. Completely compatible with all materials, hoses, O-rings, seals and oils (whether mineral or synthetic) in all current systems. No flushing or oil change is required

Easy To Install

There are no new procedures or techniques to learn! The same equipment and gauges are used. The refrigeration system is charged in the same manner as with the refrigerant being replaced using approximately the same pressure levels.

For those who install by weight the equivalency ratios are:

200g of COLD 12 is equivalent to 500g of CFC-12;

200g of COLD 134 is equivalent to 400g of HFC-134a;

The only difference with HCFC's is that COLD is installed as a liquid.

Energy Efficient

Cools much faster than regular CFC, HCFC or HFC based refrigerant gases as it has a lower boiling temperature than CFC based gas

COLD 12 is up to 32% more efficient than CFC-12 and COLD 134 is up to 35% more efficient than HFC-134a.

Financial Benefits

The increased efficiency means reduced maintenance cost of your equipment. Less wear and tear on your compressors and refrigeration systems as they have less workload. With COLD, the compressor will load approximately 2-3 hp only.
