By simply removing the old chemical refrigerant R134a and replacing with the natural OZ-30, you will reduce your vehicles fuel consumption while running the air conditioning. This is due to the unique and energy efficient properties of OZ-30. Many of these properties and features will be listed below in more detail.
OZ-30 is blended from high purity hydrocarbon refrigerants. Hydrocarbons are naturally occurring, non-toxic refrigerants that have no ozone depleting properties and almost zero global warming potential. Hydrocarbons are supported by Greenpeace International and governments all over the world. This makes OZ-30 the environmentally safe choice for automotive refrigerants.
Simple Drop-in Replacement
OZ-30 is a simple drop-in replacement for R134a. It is compatible with most air conditioning systems, including valves and oils, both mineral and synthetic. Technicians and workshops can use all their existing tools and equipment.
Due to the physical properties of OZ-30, cooler air is produced through the vents. This cooler air will cool down the cabin area quicker, therefore reducing the time and effort the compressor is running. By reducing the time and effort of the compressor, you are reducing the load on the engine and therefore saving fuel.
Less Wear and Tear
OZ-30 will also reduce the systems head pressure due to the nature of the refrigerant. Combining the reduced head pressures and cooler air produced, the system will receive less wear and tear. Ultimately the less wear and tear received, the more time and money will be saved on servicing and parts.
When replacing a system with OZ-30, approximately 60% less charge is required. Also in countries like Australia, government taxes can increase the cost of chemical refrigerants like R134a. As OZ-30 is naturally occurring it does not include the same type of manufacturing costs at chemical refrigerants. HFO-1234yf is expected to be up to 10 times more expensive than R134a.
|HFC – R134a||HC – OZ-30||HFO – 1234yf|
|AUTOIGNITION TEMP. C||743 C||461 C||405 C|
|OIL AUTOIGNITION TEMP. C||200 C||200 C||200 C|
|TOXIC WHEN BURNED||YES||NO||YES|

|A study commissioned by the Australian Government reveals that approximately 8% of passenger and light commercial vehicles in Australia use hydrocarbons refrigerants for their air conditioning system. Therefore out of the 14.6 million vehicle population, there are approximately 1.2 million vehicles using hydrocarbons. It has been a battle trying to convince most of the industry that hydrocarbons in||car air conditioners are safe, even though Hydrocarbons have been used in car air conditioning systems for well over 20 years now. But hopefully now that the Australian Government have released these figures, it may settle even the toughest critics. After all when you combine 20 plus years and over 1.2 million current vehicles on the road with hydrocarbons,||the figures tell an amazing story. This document “Cold Hard Facts 2” was prepared for the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities. It is a study of the refrigeration and air conditioning industry in Australia. Released July 2013. For more information on this document|
