    Sure. Connect your refrigerant cylinder to the inlet of the recovery machine and connect the outlet of the machine to the unit. Turn the recovery machine on and start pumping. Don't forget to purge the machine and hoses first. And don't try to force the refrigerant through a shrader valve unless you remove the core, cause it won't work.

    It's the only way to go when you have 50+ pounds of gas to put in. 3/8" charging ports and bigger are awesome.
