I ran a test on passing gas.Originally posted by bmf
i do this also but i still have my depressers inOriginally posted by R12rules
I have personally removed ALL my hoses valve core depressors. Maybe one or two hoses still have one.
I have no use for them.
I use those brass check valves which screw onto the ends of the hoses. That way I can recover the charge from the hi side into the lo side when I am getting off a system.
A lot of guys dont bledd off from hi to lo and lose that amount of refrigerant.
(just running my posts up)
First I passed gas into a system with the cores and then without the cores.
The cores slow the gas down going thru the charging hoses!
So now, I carry a pair of those $40 brass valve core removal tools and my hoses dont no mo have those valve core depressors in the ends!
In place of the built in depressors, I use those brass accessory valve core depressors with the built in check valve.
I dont lose no mo charge.
I dont burn no mo fingers.
And I dont pollute the environment thru the passing of gas.
Well .... except for when .... (I pass the gas)...
