  • ? 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

    Re: Oil Quantity

    When you install a new system, you have to keep adding oil, until oil returns.
    So no matter what, there is a percentage of oil, depending on how

    Re: Oil Quantity

    Hi PLEH
    The oil can only absorb a set amount of refrigerant at a given temperature, bigger volume of oil more refrigerant, colder oil temperature
