    There is a superheat/subcooling calculator that I use to get a charge right on the money, involves taking temps and r/h readings. They also have an airflow section on them so you can get that perfect also. These are great for any application.

    York and Carrier make these calculators (slide rule type actually).

    Superheat can run as high as 25 and still have sufficient cooling to the compressor motor. On some old relics that I have worked on (semi hermetics 06d's, 5h40, 5f20's) I concentrate on a 15 degree superheat, that ensures no flood back and sufficient cooling to compressor motor (motor cooling not applicable to 5f and 5h series, open drives).
