    Vac it down and lob it into the pipe work.
    Open valves slowly when charged .
    Any other additional gas can be flashed into the suction line.
    Cheers

    normally you will get it all in=if the charge is calculated correctly but if not stick it in test cooling and throttle it into ur suction line

    i am asuming the charge is correct because its been reclamied by someone and now ive been asked to a recharge the system now we have moved a fan coil , ive already put 10 kg back in but ran out of time to get final 6kg , was a bit unsure if running it short of 6kg would damage it
