Recovery, recycle and recharge machines are designed to provide years of reliable service. However, it’s an electro-mechanical device and, as such, does require routine maintenance.

Following are a few tips to keep your machine running at peak performance.

Service Couplers: Always inspect the receiving end of the coupler to ensure that it’s clean and oil free. Also, check the O-rings to make sure they are pliable, and inspect the valve to ensure that it’s free of dirt and turns freely.

Hoses: It’s important to inspect the hoses for cracked, abraded or blistered areas.

Refrigerant Scales: Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s procedure for checking scale accuracy at least once per year, or after service on the unit has been performed.

Filters: Remember to routinely change the filters according to the manufacturer’s protocol.

Vacuum Pump Oil: If the recovery machine comes with a vacuum pump, make sure to change the pump oil when required. Performing regular maintenance checkups will help keep your recovery, recycle and recharging equipment in great condition for many years to come.
