Due to the ozone-depleting effects of commonly used chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants, safe environmentally-friendly replacements must be found. HFC-32 (CH2F2) and other hydrochlorofluorocarbons are potential candidates; however, in contrast with the CFCs, many of these compounds are flammable. Testing the flammability limits of these hydrochlorofluorocarbons using traditional ASTM E-681 methods has produced a range of limits depending upon the vessel and ignition source used.
