Concerned about the environmental impact of medical refrigerators and freezers?

American Biotech Supply, an industry leader in medical equipment, offers a variety of refrigerators and freezers built with Hydrocarbon Refrigerants, R290 or R600a.

R290 and R600a HC (Hydrocarbon) refrigerants are safe, and an environmentally friendly alternative to HFC (Hydrofluorocarbon) refrigerants R134a in refrigerator applications and R404a in freezer applications.

Hydrocarbon refrigerant’s heat retention is approximately 90% greater R134a and 140% greater than R404a with lower viscosity. This means that HCs (Hydrocarbons) can absorb more heat faster, resulting in quicker temperature recovery and lower energy consumption.

By the year 2020, the U.S. Government will ban refrigerants R134a and R404a.
