R1234YF is developed as an alternative refrigerant in R134a, which is used for car air conditioners and vending machines. The use of CO2 and R1234YF is being carried out in these devices. The R1234YF is characterized by the fact that GWP is very low with 1, but it exhibits higher equipment performance than CO2.

Due to the low density of the refrigerant, it is necessary to ensure that the equipment itself is large and that the performance of the equipment does not decrease with pressure loss.
