Question: What happens if a recovery cylinder is filled with liquid refrigerant and allowed to warm?

Can a recovery tank explode?

Tank may explode if filled more than 80% due to liquid expansion. WARNING: The Internal Pressure Shut Off Switch does not prevent tank overfill. If your system shuts off on high pressure and is connected to your tank, you may have overfilled your tank and created a very dangerous situation!

Why should recovery cylinders never be completely filled?

Do not overfill the cylinder. Liquid refrigerant will expand as its temperature is increased. If the cylinder somehow becomes completely full of liquid, the pressure can increase dramatically with a relatively small increase in temperature.

Can you recover 410A?

Fact: R-410A can be reclaimed and reused; however, recycled refrigerant may only be returned to the equipment from which it was removed or used in another device owned by the same person, clarified Goss. “Refrigerant that is too contaminated for reuse must either be disposed of properly or reclaimed.

Can you recover 410A as a vapor?

R-410A is much more dense than R-22 and has a high- er vapor pressure making it more difficult to recover.

Do you recover 410A as a liquid?

Liquid recovery is fast, but not all equipment can handle the process. Vapor recovery is slower, but is the most common recovery method used. The push-pull recovery method works best when recovering more than 10 pounds of refrigerant. all of your R-410A tanks and have them re-certified every five years.

What is your required recovery level for 410A?

400 psig When using R-410A you must use a gauge set rated for at least 800 psig (with a 4,000 psig burst pressure on the manifold and the hoses). R- 410A requires recovery tanks and recovery/recycling machines rated for at least 400 psig.
