ASHRAE Refrigerant Designations

 

86020.jpg
 

The tables contained on this page list approved refrigerant numbers from ANSI/ASHRAE 34-2016, Designation and Safety Classification of Refrigerants, the latest edition of Standard 34, which describes a shorthand way of naming refrigerants and assigns safety classifications based on toxicity and flammability data.*

Further information can be found in the latest version of Standard 34, available in the ASHRAE bookstore, and its published addenda, available on the Standards Addenda page.
