  • ? 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: Why we use compressor

    Without the compressor there would not be a refrigeration machine.

    Study a Mollier chart the see the refrigeration process.

    Re: Time to call it a day after 50 years

    Some of the silver engineers I have been involved with, when approaching their later years, tend to shy away from the heavy lifting installs (makes sense)
