HFC-125 is a colorless and transparent liquid at room temperature.
1. R-125 is widely used as alternative to refrigerant R-502, HCF-22. HFC-125 is mainly used as the azeotrope blend refrigerant component such as R-404a, R-407a, R-407b, R-407c, R-407d, R-410a and R410b. HFC- 125 has ODP with zero.
2. HFC-125 is also used in clean agent fire suppression system. It’s used in enclosed space with situations where the fire sprinkler water can damage expensive equipment. Where water-based fire protection is impractical, such as museums, banks, clean rooms and hospitals. It is alternative for CFC-502, Halon-1211 and Halon-1301.
