Section III. REFRIGERANT SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
5-15. Precautions When Handling Refrigerant
Although refrigreant-12 is one of the safest refrigerants to handle, it is important that personnel observe the following
precautions in handling the refrigerant.
a. Do not discharge refrigerant-12 into areas having exposed flames. A heavy concentration of refrigerant in
contact with a live flame produces a gas which is toxic and attacks bright metal surfaces.
b. Do not expose the eyes to the refrigerant. If refrigerant-12 comes in contact with the eyes, observe the following
(1) Do not rub the eye(s).
(2) Arrange at once to take the affected person to an eye specialist.
(3) Put drops of sterile mineral oil into the eyes to remove the excess refrigerant.
(4) Wash the eyes with either a weak solution of boric acid or a sterile salt solution (not to exceed 2 percent
c. Do not expose the skin to the liquid refrigerant. If the liquid comes in contact with the skin, treat the injury the
same as though the skin has been frostbitten or frozen. If a person is overcome in an area which lacks oxygen because of
the presence of a high concentration of refrigerant-12, treat the person by applying artificial respiration produced manually
or by a pulmotor.
5-16. Refrigerant Service Cylinder Handling Procedures
The following precautions must be observed when handling refrigerant bottles.
a. Do not leave the refrigerant bottle uncapped. All refrigerant bottles are shipped with a metal screw cap to protect
the valve and safety plug from damage. Replace the cap after each use of the refrigerant bottles.
b. Do not carry or otherwise transport a refrigerant bottle in the passenger compartment of a vehicle or carrier. Do
not expose the refrigerant bottle to radiant heat from the sun because the resulting increase in pressure can cause the
safety plug to release or the bottle to burst.
c, Never subject the refrigerant bottle to high temperature when adding refrigerant to the air conditioning system. A
bucket of hot water (not over 125 F), or hot wet rags around the bottle provides all the heat required to raise the refrigerant
in the bottle to a pressure higher than the pressure in the system when adding refrigerant.
