About this deal
Use good quality spanners when undoing the ends of the lines, if you can get hold of refrigeration flare spanners, so much the better. Fluorescent, fully synthetic air conditioning system oil based on polyalkylene glycol is highly compatible and miscible with R134a. They mix badly with Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) such as R134a, and whilst engineering and technological advancements have raised the bar on lubricant performance, it’s the synthetic market that has forged ahead. Choosing the wrong compressor oil for your car can result in improper lubrication, causing more damage to your vehicle’s A/C system.
Not only does it lubricate the compressor’s internal components, but it also acts as a sealing agent for rubber components such as hoses and seals, absorbs heat, and in some hybrid vehicles, prevents electrical damage to the compressor.
These would be idieal for the home DIY'er as you would be kicking the gauges around for years, I think they come with a case too.
A rough rule of thumb is half for the compressor, a quarter for the condenser and a quarter for everything else.To top up or replace the refrigerant oil in passenger or commercial vehicle air conditioning systems, it is poured into the special filling cylinder and then added to the refrigerant circuit via the air conditioning system filling device. Separate measures with respect to storing and handling the new refrigerants must certainly also be observed.
