Air Conditioning

Hot Rob air is out of business. Need some Help

Does anyone know the total amount of oil the system must have prior to charging with R-134A for the first time.

Most (if not all) R134a contains oil and a UV leak detector all in one can. Cost about $9.00 a can.

If the compressor is a Sanden, and it is new, it already has the proper amount of oil in it. If it is empty for some reason, there is a label on the compressor that states the oil capacity. Unfortunately, if you have a polished compressor that label is usually removed.

Hope this helps...

The chart I have shows 10 oz for the Sanden compressor, then you want to put an oz or 2 in the receiver/dryer and the same in the condenser.

Not surprised to hear about HRA being out of buisness, kind of saw that coming about a year ago. I've got one of their evaporator assemblies set aside for one of my projects. It bench tested ok so hopfully I'l get a good service life out of it.

The link to tech specs and instructions doesn't fall within advertising boundries, link to the manufacturers web site isn't necessary and raises eyebrows...
