Product Code: ROAC1234-4

Description Prop65
Due to its environmental impact, R134a, the refrigerant currently used in vehicles around the world, is being phased out. To comply with new U.S. legislation, a new refrigerant, R-1234yf, is being introduced in its place. While it is an efficient refrigerant, R134a is also known to have consequences for global warming. Increasing environmental awareness has led the scientific and industrial community to search for a less harmful alternative. Starting in 2012, a range of vehicles with air conditioning systems running on the new R-1234yf gas will enter the U.S. market. however, the great majority of vehicles on the roads will still be using the older R-134a refrigerant – and these will continue to require servicing for the next 15 years or so. This means that your workshop will need equipment that can handle both the old and new vehicles.

R-1234yf has now emerged as the best possible replacement. This gas has an environmental impact of 4 gwp (units of global warming potential) – well under the Eu limit of 150 gwp, and a major improvement on R134a, which has a whopping 1430 gwp. what’s more, R-1234yf does not have hefty cost implications for industry.

The only downside of the new refrigerant, compared to R134a, is that it can be flammable in specific circumstances. however, this can be kept under control with well-engineered air conditioning servicing machines – like our Robinair units – and some common sense precautions in the workshop.
Bosch works with customers to develop solutions that require less energy, reduce environmental impact and minimize waste. with AC1234, our focus is on increasing energy efficiency and reducing refrigerant use. The result: a solution that’s not just greener, but also more cost effective.

Bosch companies also create technologies and enhanced processes that help customers operate in more environmentally friendly ways. For example, thanks to Robinair's unsurpassed performance and quality, the AC1234 minimizes refrigerant use, recovering 99 per cent of R-1234yf refrigerant.

What are you looking for in a new recharging station? If maximum safety, ease of use, top quality, efficiency and Eco-friendliness are on your list, the AC1234 has your needs covered.
