  • ? 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

      lpg ect is dirty, moisture and non condensables and foreign bodies

      also regrigerant grade hydrocarbons are stenchless/no smell

      as the stenching agent is absorbed by drier cores

      would say you got lucky with your domestic

    Hi Guys, still haven’t got back to this chiller. Waiting on parts.
    But I have another error on an identical model as above.

    Re: Best way to reach 450Psi for leak test?

    Yes I think it is feasible, but my main concern is to get an pressure test above the normal compressor ratio, for the read it is recommended to be 1.43

    can you not feed in on the low pressure side and use the compressor to suck the OFN in and pressurise it?

    I did that once when I was running

    As well as refrigeration I also dabble in diving, scuba diving.

    We use booster compressor's to increase O2 (oxygen) in

    Re: Cosmotec enclosure cooling unit fault P1

    Check that there isn't a door switch keeping unit off, P1 is normally the probe alright, i suppose you could jumper out the stat to test the compressor.
