Procedure

CAUTION

  • Air conditioning refrigerant or lubricant vapor can irritate your eyes, nose, or throat.
  • Be careful when connecting service equipment.
  • Do not breathe refrigerant or vapor.

NOTE:

  • If accidental system discharge occurs, ventilate the work area before resuming service.
  • Additional health and safety information may be obtained from the refrigerant and lubricant manufacturers.
  • Do not allow moisture to contaminate the A/C system oil. Moisture in the oil is difficult to remove, and it can damage the A/C compressor.
  • Using a thermistor (compact electronic) vacuum gauge may decrease the required evacuation time because you can measure actual moisture level with this tool.
  • The tool of ROB14777 is only required if you are not using the ROB48920T R134a A/C automatic recovery, recycle, recharge machine which has a built-in thermistor (compact electronic) vacuum gauge.

A more efficient way to measure moisture removal is with a special tool called a thermistor (compact electronic) vacuum gauge, measuring vacuum levels in microns. The robinair 48920T (ROB48920T) R134a A/C automatic recovery, recycle, recharge machine has a built-in thermistor (compact electronic) vacuum gauge. If you are using a different R134a A/C automatic recovery, recycle, recharge machine, a separate gauge, such as the ROB14777 may be used.

Connect the tool according to the manufacturers instructions and allow the vacuum pump to run until the gauge reads 750 microns.

Shut off and isolate the vacuum pump, then observe the gauge reading:

  • If the vacuum level remains stable at 750 microns for at least three minutes, all moisture in the system has been removed.
  • A slow increase in the micron reading means there is still moisture boiling out of the system. Restart the vacuum pump and continue evacuating.
  • A quick increase of micron levels indicates a leak is present in the system or your service equipment.

    Determine the cause and correct the leak before continuing.

When an A/C System has been opened to the atmosphere, such as during installation or repair, it must be evacuated using an R134a A/C automatic recovery, recycle, recharge machine. If the system has been open for several days, replace the receiver/dryer desiccant, drain the refrigerant oil, and add fresh oil. Then evacuate the system for several hours before charging it.

1. R134a A/C Automatic Recovery, Recycle, Recharge Machine - Connect

HVAC System - Service Information

  1. Connect an R134a A/C automatic recovery, recycle, recharge machine to the high-pressure service port (A) and the low-pressure service port (B), as shown, following the equipment manufacturer's instructions.

2. A/C Refrigerant - Recover

  1. Recover the refrigerant from the A/C system
  2. Measure the amount of refrigerant oil removed from the A/C system after the recovery process is completed. Be sure to put the same amount of new refrigerant oil back into the A/C system before charging.

3. A/C System - Evacuate

  1. Evacuate the system. The vacuum pump should run for a minimum of 30 minutes to eliminate all moisture from the system. When the suction gauge reads - 93.3 kPa (- 700 mmHg, - 27.55 inHg) for at least 30 minutes, close all valves, and turn off the vacuum pump
  2. If the suction gauge dose not reach approximately - 93.3 kPa (- 700 mmHg, - 27.55 inHg) in 15 minutes, there is probably a large leak in the system. Partially charge the system, and check for leaks.
