Have you ever wondered what blended refrigerants are?
When I looked into it, I found that they have many different types of benefits.
One of the most intriguing things about them is that they can be charged in a variety of ways.
This article will explore these various charging methods and some of their advantages and disadvantages.
The most common way to charge a blended refrigerant is with the use of an external compressor.
This requires that you have access to some power and a certain volume for charging.
But it does not require any special equipment .
Training beyond those necessary for oil changes in general.
The other option would be charging by absorption into the water.
Which can only happen if there’s no air present at all during the process.
If you do find yourself needing this method, make sure your containers are well-sealed so as not to let any oxygen inside while mixing!
Finally, another popular technique vaporization-absorption into liquid carbon dioxide (CO).
In order to accomplish this task though, one needs both high pressure and low-temperature conditions (-22 degrees Fahrenheit).
