How Pure Is Your Refrigerant?

Most technicians never question the purity of virgin refrigerant, and assume the refrigerant in a vehicle is “pure enough” unless the A/C system has a mysterious cooling problem.

If a technician has no way of checking the refrigerant before they recover it from 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 is with a refrigerant identifier. This has become very important with the use of hydrocarbon refrigerant blends and “pirated” refrigerants on the market today. With the new Robinair R134a refrigerant identifiers you can isolate potentially dangerous and damaging gas. Saving you time and money.
