Refrigerant R600a is a natural refrigerant, an isomeric form of unbranched butane, which is suitable for many cooling applications. It is environmentally friendly and effective and, in refrigeration applications, it boasts low power consumption and load power. It is also compatible with many lubricants.
R600a is commonly used due to its low environmental impact and good thermodynamic performance.
R600a refrigerant applications and use
It is suited to a variety of industrial, commercial and domestic applications.
Isobutane is particularly known as a refrigerant used in domestic refrigerators and freezers.
The diverse compound is also known from aerosol sprays, the petrochemical industry, drink dispensers and dehumidifiers.
The food E number for isobutane is E 943b. In food industry isobutane is used as a packaging gas and propellant, for example.

Want to know more?
Isobutane is an isomer of butane (method = isomerisation), which means that it shares the same chemical composition as butane but with a different order of atoms. As is the case with butane, isobutane is a flammable hydrocarbon gas which is liquefied by means of pressurisation.
Isobutane is primarily used by refineries for petrol production.
