A. No! RED TEK® 12a is designed
as a direct drop in replacement for R-134a and R-12 substitutes. RED TEK® 12a
requires no major redesigning of the refrigeration system because it is compatible
with existing oils, seals, O-rings, and hoses.
A. Absolutely! RED TEK® 12a refrigerants
are organic, non-ozone depleting, non-toxic compounds. These refrigerants are
endorsed by the GreenPeace organization and are in full compliance with the UN
A. RED TEK® 12a is a second generation,
non-ozone depleting replacement for R-134a and all other non-ozone depleting R-12
substitutes. The EPA's Final Rule, issued April 1, 1994, states: "In this
final rule, the Agency has determined that second generation replacements, if
they are non-ozone depleting and are replacing non-ozone depleting first generation
alternatives, are exempt from reporting requirements under Section 612".
Q. Are RED TEK® refrigerants energy efficient compared to other refrigerants
on the market today? [top]
A. Yes! RED TEK® Refrigerants are up
to 40% more efficient than Hydrofluorocarbon Refrigerants.
Q. Are RED TEK® Refrigerants corrosive to air conditioning systems? [top]
A. No. RED TEK® Refrigerants are non-corrosive,
non-caustic, and do not form acids in combination with system moisture.
Q. Can I lower "head pressures" in my A/C system by using RED TEK®
A. Yes! RED TEK® Refrigerants can extend
equipment and component life by lowering compressor "head pressures"
up to 33%.
