Master-Bilt® Refrigeration News & Product Information


More Equipment Converted To R290

In keeping with our commitment to provide the most eco-friendly equipment, Master-Bilt is moving more products to natural refrigerants such as R290. The latest models to be converted are:

  • Milk coolers
  • Fusion Plus™ swing glass door merchandiser refrigerators
  • Fusion Plus­™ slide glass door merchandiser refrigerators
  • BMG Plus swing glass door merchandiser refrigerators
  • BMG Plus slide glass door merchandiser refrigerators

As a safer alternative, R290 has replaced R134a in these models and offers several advantages over R134a:

  • Zero ozone depletion potential (ODP)
  • Very low global warming potential (GWP)
  • Highly energy efficient in small systems
  • Excellent thermodynamic properties

As more product lines are converted, we will keep you up-to-date.
