Chemours' Opteon XP10 Refrigerants Chosen by Sharc Energy

Read MoreHide Full Article

The Chemours Company’s CC Opteon XP10 (R-513A) refrigerants have been selected by Sharc Energy for next-generation Piranha units. Per Sharc Energy, Piranha is the greenest domestic hot water production system globally.

Notably, Opteon XP10 provides a non-ozone depleting and low global warming potential (“GWP”) hydrofluoro-olefin (“HFO”)-based refrigerant. It was developed with a 56% reduction to replace R-134a refrigerant in positive displacement, direct expansion, medium-temperature commercial, and industrial fixed speed systems, chillers and heat pumps (HP) such as the Piranha. It also offers enhanced energy efficiency, similar capacity and outstanding design compatibility.

Opteon XP10 is non-flammable, with an Ashrae A1 safety classification and has substantially simpler operating envelope management, making HP application easier to manage. Notably, it is an outstanding capacity and efficiency match for R-134a in new systems and for retrofitting existing systems.

Per Management, the partnership would allow Sharc Energy to engage in refrigerant solutions that are more environmentally sustainable, while meeting global regulatory requirements and providing reliable performance.

Chemours’ shares have lost 58.1% in the past year compared with a 27% decline recorded by its industry.



Chemours, on its third-quarter earnings call, had anticipated its initiatives such as application development work in Fluoroproducts and Ti-Pure Value Stabilization to strengthen its relationship with customers.
