Why Removing AC Acid is a Must When Replacing AC/R Compressors

Read on to learn more about why acid formation occurs in AC/R systems and how you can effectively remove AC acid residue.

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.

Where Does AC Acid Come From?

Faulty compressor motors are often the cause of AC acid: they can create high temperatures, which cause refrigerant to degrade and form harmful acids. Unless you remove all traces of acid from the system, the shiny new compressor you just installed will likely get damaged by the residual acid lurking in the refrigerant. Why? Well, while you can remove the acidic oils in the old compressor, acid remains in the coolant that is in the rest of the unit. You must neutralize the acid in refrigerant throughout the system when installing a new compressor. If you do not, the remaining acid will destroy fragile parts of the AC/R unit. Fortunately, Cool Air Products has designed No-Acid, a product that can neutralize acid and acidic residue.

Why Use No-Acid?

No-Acid is a simple, easy-to-use AC acid neutralizer. Its powerful formula requires very little to treat an entire unit — 0.2 oz treats up to a gallon of system — and it comes in a syringe for fast and easy application. No-Acid works to neutralize acid and prevent future acid formation, helping to extend the life of your replacement compressor and other parts. It is compatible with all common refrigerants and oils, too. If you regularly treat systems with acid present, No-Acid is an excellent addition to your toolkit.
