Honeywell, Trane Technologies collaborate on next-generation refrigerants


Honeywell and Trane Technologies have joined force to accelerate the transitions to a next-generation, environmentally preferable refrigerant.

As part of the partnership, Trane will deploy and by field test Honeywell’s Solstice® N41 (R-466A) refrigerant at three difference US-based customer locations as part of a one-year field trial.

Trane is currently testing Solstice N41 at the Western Cooling Efficiency Center (WCEC) at the University of California to evaluate its performance with a Trane rooftop HVAC unit used in light commercial applications.

The trials will test compatibility with new equipment installations and retrofit conversions. Trane will closely monitor power and energy consumption and analyse the refrigerant characteristics to further assess Solstice N41 as a replacement for R-410A.
