Both the TBS-BC and the R-404A multiplex DX system perform similarly in a narrow band through the center of the country (Zones 4A and 4B).

A liquid subcooling level of 15[degrees]F (8.3[degrees]C) was maintained for all the test conditions; however, cooling capacity and energy efficiency ratio (EER) for R-404A and its alternative refrigerants are reported at normalized 0[degrees]F (0[degrees]C) subcooling.
The results of this work are based on four experimental tests at a constant compressor speed (1450 rpm) using the refrigerant R-404A, which are presented in Tables A2-A5 in the appendix of this paper.
In Part 2 (December 2016), we noted the large differences in mass flow between R-404A and R-22.
We used equation 3 for mass flow metamodel and formulation 1 and 5 of Table 1 for the compressor power metamodel to predict the performance of the tested R-404A medium temperature scroll compressor.
There are no HFO candidates that are <150 GWP for R-404A, R-410A and R-22 applications proposed at this time (Figure 3).
The SLXi-DRC also utilizes a greener refrigerant, R-452A, which decreases global warming potential over its predecessor, the R-404A. In addition, CP is purchasing over 350 53' heater units.
Many alternates to R-404A, R-507, and similar refrigerants have been developed.
For example, R-11, R-12, R-502 and R-22 have greater thermodynamic efficiencies than R-123, R-134a, R-404A and R-410A.

The refrigerant circuit (Figure 1), whose working fluid is the refrigerant R-404A, corresponds to a two-stage compression cycle with a liquid injection system to control the degree of desuperheating between the compression stages.
