How To Replace R-22 on Intellipak™ Units

How To Replace R-22 on an Intellipak™

Charging an IntelliPak™ HVAC unit with an R-22 replacement (without breaking the 3D scroll compressor).

As R-22 refrigerant goes away, the use of R-22 replacements is growing fast. Using Bluon TdX 20 (R-458A) as your go-to replacement makes the job of converting systems A LOT easier, since there’s no oil change, and the capacity is actually equivalent to R-22 (yes, really).

However, some equipment is just harder to work on than others.

The IntelliPak™ units from Trane® can fall into this category, as issues with the 3D Scroll compressors can arise.

Bluon is no stranger to working with IntelliPaks™. As our video below explains, we were asked by a contractor to help with a difficult job involving the conversion of several IntelliPaks™ from R-22 to TdX 20. As a result of that job (and many more like it), we have developed a solid, field-tested method for working with these systems.

Watch Mike Mabry, Director of Systems and Technology, discuss our success converting IntelliPak™ units to TdX 20.


TdX 20 actually UPGRADES the IntelliPak™ units

A large high-tech company and CBRE needed to convert two 105-Ton IntelliPak™ units. Bluon helped convert these systems from R-22 to TdX 20 with great success. These systems are now consuming 23% less energy. Contact us for more information.
