  • ? 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

    .

    Think of the compressor as a glorified suction pump, the bigger the pump the bigger the suction it will deliver. Lower the suction pressure

    Thanks for your help. Just curious- What'll happen if it doesn't work? Will the system just not work as well?

    i assume you also ohmed the comp, also against its outer shell (checking for short circuit to ground)

    well, i did similar things in the past,

    I did. I swapped the cap with a known good one, and I checked for power at the compressor. The compressor has power and a good cap, but it won't even

    Re: Can I use a larger compressor?

    how about checking wiring / fuses / relais and capacitor first before condemning the compressor?
