Acidic coolant is a major cause of corrosion and leaks in AC/R systems, and HVAC professionals must be on the lookout for any symptoms of air conditioner acid and the risk factors for its formation. When acidic fluids are suspected, HVAC technicians have to confirm the presence of acid, determine the cause, remove all acidic residues, and seal any holes in the system. This can be a challenge, but the team at Cool Air Products has created a range of useful tools to support HVAC professionals every step of the way!
If your client’s unit is suffering from a blown compressor motor, they likely have AC acid in their system. If left untreated, this acid can cause or worsen corrosion, damage components, and harm any replacement compressor parts that you install. For these reasons, AC/R professionals know the importance of treating AC acid swiftly and thoroughly. HVAC technicians must be able to accurately detect acid in lubricants and remove all acidic residues from a system for their repairs to be effective. Read on to see how you can effectively detect and remove AC acid in AC/R systems so that you can make lasting repairs.
One of the most common causes of refrigerant leaks in AC/R units is the presence of acids in the system. While technicians can patch holes, leaks are likely to reoccur unless the acid is removed from the system. How do these acids form? How can HVAC technicians safely and effectively remove these acids? In this week’s blog, we will explore the causes of acidic refrigerant and one method used to remove air conditioner acid.
There are a few ways that acid forms in AC/R units and the result of acid buildup is corrosion and damage to sensitive parts of the system. Much of the time, the cause of the presence of acid in AC/R systems is a burnt-out compressor. While replacing the compressor can often save the system, you must also remove all traces of acid from the refrigerant for your repair to be successful in the long term. Read on to learn more about why acid formation occurs in AC/R systems and how you can effectively remove AC acid residue.
