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.
Detecting AC Acid with Acid-Test
The first step to treating acid in AC/R systems is to confirm its presence. Acid-Test, a universal acid-detecting diagnostic tool created by Cool Air Products, is a highly-portable and incredibly accurate test that all HVAC professionals should have in their toolkits. Compatible with all lubricants, Acid-Test allows for the quick and precise detection of acid in AC/R systems. Acid-Test is also relatively inexpensive, particularly when compared to laboratory acid tests. Each plastic box contains four tests, and HVAC professionals and retailers alike will find that they are incredibly easy to store, whether you are keeping them tucked away in your work truck or stacked in your inventory room.
Using No-Acid to Remove AC Acid
Once you have confirmed the presence of AC acid in a system, the next step is to neutralize it. No-Acid is a potent acid neutralizer developed by Cool Air Products for use in systems with acidic residue. Its injectable formula neutralizes acid and eliminates residue left behind in AC/R systems. No-Acid is so strong that the dosage rate is only 0.2 ounces per gallon of system, and it is compatible with all types of refrigerants and lubricants. If a system you are servicing tests positive for acid, using No-Acid is a must for stabilizing the pH and removing acidic residues. With Acid-Test and No-Acid, you and your customers can rest assured that your repairs will last.
