Evacuating the System

Print

The unit tank must contain a sufficient amount of R-134a refrigerant for charging. Check the amount of refrigerant in the tank. If there is less than 3.6 kg (8 lbs) of refrigerant, add new refrigerant to the tank. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for adding refrigerant.

  1. Verify that the high side and the low side hoses are connected to the A/C system. Open both the high side and the low side valves on the unit's control panel.
  2.  
  3. Open both the gas and the liquid valves on the tank.
    NOTE
    Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for the charging station in use. It is necessary to evacuate the system before recharging it with new or recycled refrigerant.

  4.  
  5. Start the vacuum pump and begin the evacuation process. Non-condensable gases, mostly air, are automatically vented from the tank during the recycling process. You may hear the pressure being released.
    NOTE
    Change the vacuum pump oil frequently. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for the charging station in use.

  7. Check for leaks in the system. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for the charging station in use.
