Industrial refrigerant used in chillers and refrigeration plants

What is an ideal industrial refrigerant? There is no absolute answer to this question. No refrigerant fits the requirements 100 % for all cooling plants. An ideal refrigerant would need to have it all in terms of material compatibility, chemical stability, performance, non-toxicity, non-flammability[..]
