Can You Pull Moisture from a Filter Dryer with a Vacuum Pump?
Vacuum leaks have led more than one technician deep down the rabbit hole, wasting hours upon hours, pressurizing the system with nitrogen—or nitrogen and a trace gas—leak testing with electronic leak detectors, and soap bubbles, removing panels to check evaporators, condensers, and other components that are buried in places that are not easy to […]

Let me start by saying we are in the service business, and there is nothing wrong with charging and […]
