    Here is a good thread about what conditions lead to the formation of acid in a system.

    If the refrigerant in the system gets too hot, the compounds will begin to break down forming acids that will mix with the oil. If the system does not get hot enough to cause a burnout the acid stays in the system till it eats it up or is nuetrilized. Certain noncondinsables can also cause acid.
