Carrier, which operates in South Africa through the joint venture AHI Carrier, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

“AquaForce® with HFO R-1234ze boasts an energy efficiency gain of 5% in both heating and cooling applications when compared to the traditional R-134a refrigerant, and reduces greenhouse gas footprint by up to 10%,” said Jaco Smal, commercial sales director, AHI Carrier.

AquaForce® with HFO R-1234ze is designed to lower CO₂ emissions and improve energy savings significantly. R-1234ze, a hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) refrigerant, has a GWP of less than 1*. It serves as a replacement for the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) R-134a, used previously for screw chillers and heat pumps.

In terms of heat pumps, the combination of Carrier technology with HFO R-1234ze as a refrigerant has redefined heat pump operating limits to provide hot water of up to 85°C. This significantly extended operating range allows the new 61 XWH-ZE heat pump to meet all high-temperature heating applications such as district heating, space heating, sanitary hot water production or process heating.
