Linde North America, Inc. Datasheets for Refrigerants, Antifreezes, and Cooling Liquids

Primary refrigerants use a thermodynamic or adiabatic process (evaporation-condensation cycles) to remove heat and cool a region. Secondary refrigerants such as antifreeze liquids provide cooling solely through heat transfer.
