Master-Bilt® Refrigeration News & Product Information


Master-Bilt Refrigerant Strategy Update

As you may know, the EPA SNAP rule driving delisting of R404a was recently revoked by the US Court of Appeals. Even so, Master-Bilt is proceeding with plans to be SNAP compliant. While the change is challenging, the new refrigerants support Master-Bilt objectives of providing environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient refrigerated solutions.

  • Blended refrigerants (R-448A/R-449A) are already in place in redesigned refrigeration systems and provide up to 84% reduction in global warming potential (GWP).
  • Natural refrigerant (R290) is in place in several cabinet models and provides zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and nearly zero GWP.
