  • ? 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

    Brivis donsr 16z7 pump down

    Hey fellas, who can tell me the pump down procedure for this unit?
    It goes out on hi pressure if you attempt a pump down with the liquid line closed.

    Creating a Sonic Bang.

    Just for Fun.
    I can think of 2 occasions where an engineer can create a sonic bang!
    1 using a refrigerant and the other using another medium.

    Re: Heater tape

    I would have thought trap outside with provision to clean it in accessible location as well.
    Good fall on pipe also helps.
    Make sure pipe
