Evacuation and Charging
Evacuation and Charging of Cooling SystemsRefrigerators, air conditioners and cooling machines operate according to a thermodynamic cycle process, in which heat is transferred from the cooling cabinet to a warmer surrounding.ChallengeAs transport medium fort he heat a refrigerant is used inside the closed cycle cooling system.Before this cooling system is filled or when it is to be refilled after maintenance work it first has to be completely evacuated to approx. 10-3 mbar, so that no rest of air or air humidity remains in the system.This would reduce the capability of the appliance and may even lead to serious damage of the cooling system.Further care must be taken thet there are no leaks in the system.Therefore the vacuum level which is reached after evacuation has to be checked accuratelySolutionCompact vacuum meters of type VD84/2 with external Pirani sensor measure the vacuum inside the cooling system with appropriate accuracy and resolution.The handy gauges are easy to operate and are optimal for use in the service and maintenance.Via an USB interface the measurements can be stored and analyzed on a PC.VD84
