Koura launches next generation low GWP refrigerants  

Koura, a Boston, MA-based developer, manufacturer and supplier of fluoroproducts, has launched Klea 473A, the first of its next generation low GWP refrigerants. The launch follows proposed classification of Klea 473A as an A1 refrigerant by the ASHRAE SSPC34 committee.

The refrigerant is designed to achieve high performance with a lower global warming potential (GWP) in ultra-low temperature cooling applications such as high value cold chains, vaccine storage, climate test chambers, transportation and other medical uses.

Dave Smith, downstream business director at Koura said, “The launch of Klea 473A is an exciting milestone in our next generation refrigerant program, which aims to develop a new portfolio of sustainable, energy efficient, low GWP refrigerant solutions for a variety of heating, cooling and refrigeration applications.”
