    DIY - Refrigerant Recovery Machine - help needed



    Hello everyone.

    I've been looking for a recovery machine in my part of the world, even a used machine is so expensive that I can't even think about buying one of those as of now.

    So, I went about searching how can I build one myself

    I have most of the things, including the compressor, condenser - piping is of course no issue...

    but I need a general diagram of such a unit plus =
    how to remove oil from the refrigerant?
    what to use as sep tanks? - where to install the seperator tanks things like such

    how to inject the recovering refrigerant into a cylinder

    need general guidelines so I don't blow anything up

    regards

    We used to use old condensing units, one for 407c, another for 134a, might be easier than trying to work from scratch?
    Mostly found in the southern part of this green and pleasant land.
