Hi,

We were using R141b as flushing agent but the same has now got banned in India. All the industry people are looking for equivalent without harming the environment and it should not be flammable and expensive.

Any suggested equivalent?

We are looking for a flushing agent which will be used to flush out carbon (formed due to compressor winding burn out) moisture and debris etc from the heat exchangers in chillers.

Thanks for the info. We have approached Honeywell, they are suggesting a different product for this application.
