Workshop Machinery- Automotive service equipment- best auto air conditioner charging machine.

Updated on September 7, 2011

evacuating and recharging an air-conditioner

Modern air conditioning recharge stations come in a variety of configurations.

There are three ways of setting up to do air-conditioner recharging.

  1. separate unit for each function.
  2. Separate unit for some functions.
  3. A combined fully automated machine.

I can throw a bit of light on the subject as far as choices, but to me it is a simple enough decision.

I would choose the fully automated combined station with scales built in and with the capacity to evacuate, purify recycle and store all r12 r13 gases

The best of them are very reliable and have many self protective features. There is good profit to be made in having a fully automated recharge station.

Stick with the big brand names though.

Robinaire dominate the market for new machines.

Ariazone make the best machine and provide the most professional service in my experience.

You can make very nice money with an air-conditioning recharge station because it is set and forget. All you need to do is hook it up to the air-con gas lines and get on with working on the next job. The only set-back is that the car you are recharging the air-conditioner on will be using floor space, so keep that in mind.

The main thing to consider with an automated machine is quality.

If one part of the multi-function system breaks down, the whole machine will be out of action, so it is imperative that you buy a top quality machine with fast backup service.

      Now if it was like some of the festivals in Spain... they bring in tcruks filled with peas, which the drunken young Pea Enthusiasts then proceed to throw at each other.Well, I'd all for that.The modern frozen baby peas are pretty popular in our house. Our kids will pour them cold into a bowl and snack on them.And a "Pie Floater" is popular here. A meat pie swimming in mushy canned peas. All your meat and vegetables in a convenient pre-chewed form.

      Perhaps the best artistic rrnieedng of Linda Ronstadt I've ever seen. You have perfectly captured her physically and spiritually. Just fabulous, Greg.Most portraits I've seen miss the special curves of her mouth and the expressiveness of her eyes. Not you!BTW, I posted a link to your site and the painting on the Linda Ronstadt fan forum, so expect to hear more accolades.

      I have no idea what you will pay in SA sorry.

      If it helps, it is similar in price to the Robinaire.

      They will have local distribution which you should find in the phone book. If not just Google them, they have many outlets around the world, you should have no problem buying one in SA

      Good ideas Toneyahuja. I must learn more about spider plants.I have never heard of them.

      Most of the references in this article relate to automotive air-conditioners

      A quality Automotive air-conditioning recharge unit stops pollution by discharging the old gas in to a gas bottle so it does not get loose in the environment.

      R12 gas as used in early air-conditioners is very bad for the atmosphere and must never be allowed to escape in to the air. The newer machines do the complete cycle automatically, and even clean and separate the oil and gas before automatically storing it.

      I’m a big believer in protecting my family against the short and long term effects of VOCs and indoor air pollution. We use normal house hold plants such as Spider Plants throughout our home, have a HepaOne filter in the living. I am focusing on air condition filters how I should maintain filters.
