Refrigerant Oil: Capacity Specifications

Refrigerant Oil

The special refrigerant oil (for use with refrigerant circuits R134a only) is no longer obtainable on the refrigerant/machine oil market.

*

This quantity of refrigerant oil is in a replacement compressor and equates to the total capacity.

Important information:

The refrigerant oil is very hygroscopic, therefore opened containers must be closed immediately after use to stop ingress of moisture.

Refrigerant oil, because of its chemical properties, must not be disposed of with engine oils or transmission oils.

Oil Distribution

The oil, which is located in the sump of the A/C compressor before initially switching on the air conditioner system, is distributed through the 
refrigerant circuit as follows:

‹› A/C compressor approximately 50%

‹› Condenser approximately 10%

‹› Suction hose approximately 10%

‹› Evaporator approximately 20%

‹› Fluid reservoir approximately 10%
