Retubing Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Heat Exchangers

Form #: 630-102
This chapter is not meant to supersede specific O.E.M. established instructional material, but the information provided here is universally applicable to all manufacturers’ types of equipment.

Refrigerant Leak Detection

Form #: 630-109
Some of the covered topics in this chapter are: reducing refrigerant loss, area monitoring, leak locating methods, preventing migration of refrigeration, types of analyzers, and selectivity of leak detectors.

Examining Flood-Damaged Equipment

Form #: 630-115
This chapter contains seven articles that appeared in the August 2, 1993 issue of the “Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration News. Due to the value of this information it is being provided here as a permanent reference for industry service technicians and contractors.
