How Pure is Your Refrigerant?
Most technicians never question the purity of virgin refrigerant, andmost assume the refrigerant in a vehicle is “pure enough” unlessthe A/C system has a mysterious cooling problem. If a technician has no way of checking the refrigerant before they pull it out of a customer’s vehicle into their recovery equipment it may contaminate their service equipment as well as other vehicles that are serviced with the contaminated equipment.
The best defense against unknown refrigerant and the risks associated with unknown refrigerant is a refrigerant identifier. With the new Robinair 16009 DiscovR 134a refrigerant identifier you can:
