  • ? 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: Daikin mono bloc low temperature

    It could be reduced water flow or potentially an air bubble causing reduced flow. if the system works fine when set at 40degC, there may be insufficient

    Pretty sure there is a restrictor in the correct valve.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Ranger1 - My condenser TD is already at a designed 5kTd so with a 43 deg ambient I do not have many options to reduce

    That's my thinking,swap the valve with the one from the redundant machine.
