    And you have to be impressed with some of the entrance and exit ramps around here. They’re like 10 stories up!!!

    I found "The Holy Grail" pub in Plano. I think I’m going to like it here. :D

    No. A couple of researchers by the names of Wolf and Pate did the actual correlation. The correlation used capillary tube flow tests with various refrigerants.

    One other issue with the replacement refrigerants is that they affect the capacity of the compressor. For example, an R-12 compressor on MP39, R-409A, or Hot Shot can deliver significantly more...

    POE oil is more resilient. The real problem here is motor windings will roast at these temperatures. Mineral oil would break down at these temperatures measured at the discharge line.

    It is also a measure of the valve's rating. A valve with a nominal 1 ton rating and a 20 percent bleed will have a total 1.2 ton nominal rating. A 2 ton valve with a 20 percent bleed would have...

    It means a 15 percent uncontrolled flow at the valve's nominal rating conditions. Incidentally, this also increases the valve's capacity 15 percent at its nominal rating conditions.

    become indistinguishable.

    At the critical point, you are still at saturation, but cannot...

    Using R-502 with POE oil won't be a problem.

    I doubt going from R-404A to R-502 will give you any significant change in system capacity. Your problem likely lies elsewhere.

    Hydrocarbons are miscible with MO/AB oil. That is why they are added to HFC refrigerants which, of course, are not miscible with MO/AB oil. The trick is to use enough hydrocarbons to get the MO/AB...
