  • ? 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

      would say you got lucky with your domestic

    Depends on which model, some older units (if i'm remembering right) were Dc only to indoor, ones i've fitted recently are L,N, and 2 core for comms.

    Cap tube behaves like txv apart from the bulb. You can control the flow by changing the condensing pressure.
