WARNING
Never pressurizes lines with oxygen, mixture with oil will cause an explosion.
The pressure in a nitrogen cylinder can exceed 2000 psi. A nitrogen pressure regulator
should be used at all times to avoid personal injury.
Nitrogen is an inert gas that can cause suffocation and must be discharged in a well-
ventilated area.
NOTE
Test for leaks with either a refrigerant gas leak detector or a strong solution of liquid
detergent in water.
If an electronic refrigerant gas leak detector is available, it should be used in accordance
with the procedures contained in TM 9-4940-435-14, Leak Detector, Refrigerant Gas.
Unit contains R-22, a chemical substance that harms public health and the environment
by destroying ozone in the upper atmosphere. Qualified personnel must service
equipment only.
To perform leak testing by use of the electronic detector, it is necessary that the system
be pressurized with a proportion of refrigerant gas. To perform leak testing by use of the
soap solution method, the system may be pressurized with dry nitrogen alone.
A. To pressurize a system that has some refrigerant charge:
1) Connect the 1/4 inch yellow hose (charge) to a Refrigerant-22 (R-22) cylinder.
2) Open the service manifold compound gauge, pressure gauge, and the charge valves.
3) Check that the service manifold vacuum valve is closed.
4) Open the refrigerant cylinder valve and pressurize the system to 100 psi (7.1 kg/cm2).
5) Test for leaks at all points of possible leaks by using an electronic refrigerant gas leak detector or by
brushing on a soap solution while closely observing for bubbles to form.
6) If a leak is detected, discharge and purge the system and repair the leak. Retest for leaks.
7) If a soap solution was used to test for leaks, thoroughly rinse test areas with fresh water.
