  • ? about hydrocarbon gas

    i am thinking about starting to learning a bit about hydrocarbon gases to save money. can any one tell me what the difference between r290a and lpg is . can any one tell me why u cant just use pure lpg in a fridge all u would need is a pt chart for it. does lpg have more moister in it
    because from what i can work out it seems to work fine we tried it in a domestic fridge and ran fine for 4 years

      R290 is a CLEAN refrigerant

    Automotive system leaks on vacuum but not on pressure

    The only reason that the oil was being sprayed out was that the oil travels around the system with the refrigerant and if you open a valve fast enough

    probably the oil was trapped in the vertical risers of the refrigerant pipe??
