 If the system is under pressure, depressurize it using the manufacturer’s instructions.

  1. Be sure that the PT Gripper and tube are free from oil, scratches, debris and moisture.
  2. Cut tube off straight, making sure it is long enough to bottom out when installed into PT Gripper
  3. Slide the appropriate size PT Gripper over tube until it bottoms out.  Failure to do so may cause tool to leak or fall off during use.
  4. Adjust knurl nut on PT Gripper for proper tension so that the tool is firmly attached to tube.
  5. Connect the (charging, flushing or drain) hose to the threads on the top of the PT Gripper.
  6. If charging: Use crimping tool (not Included) to pinch off the tubing after charging is complete; close supply valve prior to removing PT Gripper; then solder the end of the process tube closed.
  If flushing: With one or two PT Grippers, ensure that all of the pressure in the system is evacuated and the supply and receiver tank valves are closed prior to removing PT Gripper.
  7. When PT Gripper is not in use, relax the compression on it by turning the knurl nut CCW. This prevents deformation of the neoprene elastomer which causes difficulty when connecting to the largest tube.

Refrigerant Recovery and Repair

The first step to refrigeration repair is refrigerant recovery.

Sounds so easy…but first you have to carry your refrigerant pump (hope it works this time), tank (damn, this thing is heavy), gauges and tool kit (wish I had two more hands).

If you are tired before you even start, we can help.
