  • ? 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: Automotive system leaks on vacuum but not on pressure

    Got to be shaft seal.
    Maybe to prove you would have to remove compressor, blank connections, then pressure test, if ok pull vacuum.
    A longer

    Automotive system leaks on vacuum but not on pressure

    This is a 2010 CitroŽn Berlingo with 5SEL12c compressor. It had zero pressure so I added 120 psi of nitrogen to find the leak. Not 1 psi drop for 20 mins

    Re: Service Port - Suction Line 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

    Re: Service Port - Suction Line Pressure

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