    Where have you been for the last few years my friend?
    Or have you not been reading the forum?
    Some R22 replacements are fazed out themselves. Man made refrigerants are crazy prices.
    I will let the commercial Guys who know better than me, advise you further.

    Hi Grizzly. Been using R422a up until the prices went from 12 kilo to about 80 a kilo.

    I knew it was getting expensive but that's scary.

    Heres on we did on a Calorex unit, cut the compressor out and tipped the oil out the suction before refilling.

    Thanks guys but i have found a straight drop in. No oil change with a lower discharge temp and a reasonable 27 per kilo. RS44. Ideal for medium to high temp systems.
