## Lineset Calculation Help

I've got an 150ft lineset, and I'm needing to know how to calculate how many ounces of r-22 are in a 3/4" and 7/8" copper line per foot so I can calculate approximate refrigerant needed.

Your instillation instructions should have it in there along with the proper line size. 150ft with the sizes you stated seems a little small for the suction line to me or is this the liquid line?

The rating plate charge of a given outdoor unit is for a standard
application of 15 ft of tubing.

Add 0.6 oz of Refrigerant 22 per ft of 3/8-in. liquid line over 15
ft. to the data plate's rating charge

Hence,
150 feet minus 15 feet = 135 feet
135 feet X 0.6 oz = 81 ounces
Therefore, 81 ounces is added to the data plate's rating charge.

Hey, I can't help it if you didn't charge enough! ®

this isn't an installation boss. If I had installation instructions, that had that information in it I wouldn't be on here......nevermind , I'll find out.

*It's a Liebert unit with a remote condensor the lineset is the discharge and liquid line, I know the application, just wanted to know the volume.

Relax. The above post is correct for your liquid line but the discharge and the liquid line are one in the same although I have .58 oz's per foot instead of .6. The suction line per foot in oz's even though it's minimal.

1 3/8" .22
1 1/8" .15
7/8" .08
3/4" .06
5/8" .04

OK, WAYYY off course people. I said 3/4" and 7/8". This is not a new install, this unit leaked its entire charge. This is commercial guys, not pre-charged systems. But like I said Nevermind

They are for suction line and R-22 in vapor.

You need to know how much refrigerant is in the hot gas line before it goes through the condenser?

Does the unit have a site glass? If not add one then charge it while running . Then mark what the charge is for the next time
