They are the refrigerants of the future!

WHAT IS DURACOOLŽ?

DURACOOL LIMITED manufactures a complete line of premium hydrocarbon refrigerant products, under the registered Trade Name DURACOOLŽ.

DURACOOLŽ products were specifically designed as drop-in replacements for ozone-depleting CFC substitutes and global-warming HFCs. DURACOOL 12a, the first of our refrigerant line, was designed to replace ozone-depleting CFC R-12 subsitutes and global-warming HFC R-134a refrigerant. For the commercial refrigeration market, Duracool 22a is marketed and sold worldwide as a replacement for R22 except for the USA, where Duracool 22a is marketed and sold as a replacement for R22 substitutes (as a second generation replacement for R404a and MO99). Duracool 502a is marketed and sold worldwide as a replacement for R22 except for the USA, where Duracool 502a is marketed and sold as a replacement for R-502 substitutes (as a second generation replacement for R404a, R422a, & MO79). DURACOOL LIMITED is committed to developing new products, all of which are intended to be drop-in replacements for present environmentally unfriendly refrigerants, and to minimize ( or even eliminate ) the need to retrofit.

DURACOOLŽ products are the ENVIRONMENTAL ALTERNATIVE. They are made from natural, organic products.

DURACOOLŽ products are safe to use, as directed, and add life and performance to air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment.

 

WHO IS DURACOOLŽ?     
We are a company incorporated and operating in Alberta, Canada. Quality Control is our over-riding goal, and we offer comprehensive technical and back up service. Our packaging is state of the art, with full compliance with all regulations.

ARE DURACOOLŽ PRODUCTS
EFFICIENT?


DURACOOLŽ products, and DURACOOL 12aŽ in particular, have been tested and demonstrated to operate even more efficiently than CFC R-12, and significantly more efficiently than HFC-134a. We have recorded energy savings of up to 35%, and increased longevity to air-conditioning systems and components. DURACOOL 22aŽ and DURACOOL 502aŽ have also been proven to operate efficiently and effectively in R-22 and R-502 systems, respectively (although in the US they are sold as second-generation replacements). DURACOOLŽ products will result not only in cost savings, but also in reduced repairs and maintenance of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.

ARE DURACOOLŽ PRODUCTS
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?


DURACOOLŽ products are not only NON-OZONE DEPLETING, but are also NON-GLOBAL WARMING. HFC-134a is a Global Warming substance, with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1300 (or 3200, by Greenpeace calculations and publications).

The Government first found that use of R12 greatly contributes to the depletion of our ozone and has accordingly outlawed the use of the R12 through a phased-out plan that was greatly accelerated. Now the Government has found that 134a greatly contributes to the high global warming potential (GWP). As highlighted in World Climate Change debate, especially in Kyoto, Japan in November 1997, Global Warming and Greenhouse gases pose a significant environmental threat.

DURACOOLŽ products are made exclusively from natural, organic material, and represent no environmental threat whatsoever.

Greenpeace International has long sung the praises of hydrocarbon technology, and has encouraged government and industry to adopt it in favor of other non-ozone depleting alternatives.

DURACOOLŽ products are the refrigerants of the future!

ARE DURACOOLŽ PRODUCTS SAFE?
DURACOOLŽ products are safe to use, as directed. Like all hydrocarbons, DURACOOLŽ products are flammable, but there is an enormous difference between "flammability" issues and "safety" issues. We all utilize flammable products every day of our lives. Such products include gasoline, natural gas, hair spray, barbecue lighter fluid, cigarette lighters, and numerous household aerosol cleaners, disinfectants, and insect repellents. Proper adherence to directions and common sense eliminate the dangers associated with improper or negligent use of those materials.

Unlike many new alternative refrigerants, DURACOOLŽ products are non-toxic, and environmentally friendly.

There are many Risk Assessment studies, carried out world-wide by scientists and institutions whose credentials are above reproach, that recognize the safety and wisdom of using hydrocarbon refrigerants. Such studies cover the full range of uses and applications of hydrocarbon refrigerants.

Many countries, particulary in Europe, have recognized this safety, and have embraced hydrocarbon technology, often in preference to many of the established CFC replacements. In the last 3 to 4 years alone, over 8 million domestic refrigerators and freezers have been manufactured in Germany and Denmark utilizing designs based on hydrocarbon technology. Indeed, the Danish Minister of the Environment and Energy (Mr. Svend Auken) stated in a speech given on September 4, 1996:

"[Hydrocarbon refrigerants]
are clean, safe and environmentally friendly."


WORLD OPINION

The experiences in Europe, and the need for governments and industry to recognize and deal with the ever growing environmental issues that face the planet, have galvanized many world leaders and governments to accelerate the trend to hydrocarbon technology. The UK has adopted a new Standard (BS4344) that recognizes the use of hydrocarbons; the Danish government has embraced its use and development, and has declared its intention to phase out HFCs; German technology is leading the world in applications of hydrocarbon technology in domestic refrigeration; the Japanese goverment has sought that industry phase out the use of GWP refrigerants such as HFC-134a; and GREENPEACE has published numerous papers on the virtues of hydrocarbons, and the dangers of HFCs. DURACOOLŽ products are the refrigerants of the future!


 

ARE DURACOOLŽ PRODUCTS GUARANTEED?

DURACOOL LIMITED guarantees that
DURACOOLŽ products will perform as efficient refrigerants, and will not harm any air-conditioning or refrigeration components and equipment if used in accordance with the manufacturer's directions and instructions.

EQUIVALENTS.

DURACOOLŽ products are extremely efficient. DURACOOL 12aŽ requires only 35% of the charge, by weight, of CFC-12 (R-12), or 40% of the charge, by weight of HFC-134a (R-134a). DURACOOL 22aŽ and DURACOOL 502aŽ require only 40% of the charge, by weight, of R-22 and R-502, respectively. This is interpreted as follows:

DURACOOL 12aŽ
6 ounce can = 17 ounces of CFC-12 (R-12) or 15 ounces of HFC-134a.

30# refrigerants cylinder containing
12 pounds = 34 lbs of CFC-12 (R-12) or 30 pounds of HFC-134a.
50# refrigerant cylinder containing
20 pounds = 57 lbs of CFC-12 (R-12) or 50 pounds of HFC-134a.
DURACOOL 22aŽ
50# refrigerants cylinder containing 20 pounds = 50 pounds. HCFC-22 (R-22) or 48.5 pounds of HFC-134.
DURACOOL 502aŽ
50# refrigerant cylinder containing 20 pounds = 50 pounds of CFC - 502 (R-502).
