Refrigerant displaces oxygen, therefore be certain to work in well ventilated areas to prevent suffocation.
Do not handle refrigerant near an open flame.
Always wear eye protection.
Be careful not to get liquid refrigerant in your eyes or on your skin.
If liquid refrigerant gets in your eyes or on your skin:
Wash the area with lots of cool water.
Do not rub your eyes or skin.
Apply clean petroleum jelly to the skin.
Go immediately to a physician or hospital for professional treatment.
Never heat container or expose it to naked flame.
Be careful not to drop or apply physical shocks to container.
Do not operate compressor without enough refrigerant in refrigerant system. If there is not enough refrigerant in the refrigerant system oil lubrication will be insufficient and compressor burnout may occur, so that take care to avoid this, necessary care should be taken.
Do not open high pressure manifold valve while compressor is operating. If the high pressure valve is opened, refrigerant flows in the reverse direction and could cause the charging cylinder to rupture, so open and close the only low pressure valve.
Be careful not to overcharge system with refrigerant. If refrigerant is overcharged, it causes problems such as insufficient cooling, poor fuel economy, engine overheating etc.
