Protect your Refrigerant, Shop Equipment, Customers, & Integrity

  Due to increasing cost and reduced availability of R12, some service people have used chemicals other than R12 in auto a/c systems.

Known substitutes range from R22 and "other alternative refrigerants", to flammable chemicals such as propane and butane. The resulting damage from these "substitutes" can be a/c equipment damage, a/c system damage, fire, explosion, or personal injury from flammable gases.

To protect yourself from these potential problems, it is advisable to check all systems for the integrity of the refrigerant prior to service. This requires a refrigerant identifier.
    Many R134a systems do not cool efficiently due to excessive air in the system. Air can come from poor service techniques or from inadequate evacuation. To diagnose this type of problem, you must have an analyzer that can determine the percentage of air in the system. The Viper Verifier provides that capability.
