r-502 refrigerant

What is R502?

Refrigerant R502 is a blend of the HCFC R22 and the CFC R115. It was originally developed as a replacement to R22. R502 can provide a lower temperature of refrigeration than R22, which makes it more efficient and inexpensive than its predecessor. This CFC gas was commonly used to cool industrial refrigeration systems due to its low temperature capabilities.
