    that 20 micron thing is nice i guess, but supposedly, you risk boiling/evaporating the refrigerant oil past 250 microns.

    I like my appion!

    I've seen 50 on mine ( tez 8 ) , and I've seen 30 on a JB 10 cfm.

    The Appion crt 's are RATED to 20 microns ( in response to others being rated to whatever number ). I mentioned the 20 micron rating and it added mess to the mess.

    Who rated them to 20 microns?
    I know the package says they are, but what nationally recognized agency lists them as being tested and approved to hold at 20 microns?

    If they have no agency listing Appion could just be blowing hot air.


    You don't need anything lower than a 200 micron vacuum. Any thing lower is just bragging rights and provides no extra benefit to system dryness.

    Maybe but any of these rated valves will just get worse over time and if you were starting out at 20 you got a head start on one that is starting out at 200

    I've seen a video from the guy in the OP and his pump will pull down to zero so there

    On a side note it sucks how his videos get taged so when I'm looking for one from someone like JimB. all his pop up about something not even close to what the search was about. If you're reading this could you tweek the tags alittle fritz unless you're making money off the videos then have at it I guess
