Fluoro Organics

Overview

Fluoroorganic Division was established in 1990 to pursue research & development work in fluoroorganics, in order to fulfil the resolutions of Montreal Protocol as India became a signatory. Initially, the division has developed an expertise to handle highly corrosive anhydrous hydrogen fluoride used as fluorinating agent. Also established infrastructure to conduct vapour / liquid phase fluorination reactions with efficient safety norms which include fume hoods and scrubbing systems. All the reactor assemblies made up of hastealloy / inconel materials with reaction monitoring systems though PID controlled heating and dedicated analytical support. During the course of division’s existence, it has developed major technologies for hydrofluorocarbons such as 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane (HFC-134a) a well recommended substitute for ozone depleting chlorofluorocarbons used as refrigerant, air conditioning, foam blowing, aerosol gases etc. Also developed technology for 2H-Heptafluoropropane (HFC-227ea) used as fire extinguishant and well recommended substitute for ozone depleting halons. Both the technologies available from lab scale to pilot scale. Further efforts are on in development of technologies for new generation hydrofluorocarbons.
