R23 refrigerant also called fluoroform, Trifluoromethane, chemical formula CHF3. Because R-23 belongs to HFC substances (non-ODS substances Ozone-depleting Substances)-it does not destroy the ozone layer at all. It is currently an environmentally friendly refrigerant recognized and recommended by most countries. It is also the current mainstream ecologically friendly refrigerant and is widely used. It is added during the initial installation and maintenance of new refrigeration equipment (ultra-low temperature, cryogenic).
R23 is a widely used ultra-low temperature refrigerant. Due to the good comprehensive performance of HFC-23, it becomes a very effective and safe CFC-13 (R13, R-13, Freon 13, Freon-13) and R- The substitute of 503 is mainly used in cryogenic equipment (including scientific research refrigeration, Medical refrigeration, etc.), which are often used in low-temperature grades of these cascade refrigeration systems. Trifluoromethane can also be used as a gas fire extinguishing agent. It is an ideal substitute for Halon 1301. It has the characteristics of cleanliness, low toxicity, and good fire extinguishing effect.
