  • ? 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: refco condensate pumps.

    You could try Javac as they are exclusive distributors of Refco Products. I have no connection with them, just found their advert.

    Re: refco condensate pumps.

    Thanks for that, will try pumping it into a bucket above reservoir.
    also there seems to be a lot of pulsing in the plastic hose unless well clipped.

    The ambient temperature and the temperature of the water is fine (those things with numbers are in the manual). Other things I checked and they are also
