    What is the best way to get the oil out of an oil logged evaporator?

    You need to be a bit more specific. Your question is like asking "How do I cook my dinner".

    My response so far: Well, it depends...........

    What kind of system?/ what refrigerant?/ is it a new problem?/ is it an oil return problem?......stuff like that will give us a little more to work with here.

    First correct the problem causing the logging. Then the system will bring back the oil.

    Without knowing what type "Evaporator" you are referring, It is all but impossible to even Venture a guess as to which one you are asking about..

    Where does the evap sit in reference to the condensor? If it is lower you need to put a trap on the suction line.
    Not what it use to be

    I am doing good Dow. Working my but off again, but I can handle that. Learning alot of new things, keeps it interesting.

    Took a couple of months to get back up the scale, but I made it. Money is good, actually better with the OT. The company I work for respects my talent, what more can a man ask for. I made the right choice staying with the union.

    My ex-boss just completed his master plan. His service department just went non union this month. Everyone stayed except the apprentices, and one old timer about to retire. He promised them all the world. I bet that world gets a lot smaller down the road.

    Dow are you a UA member?
