    subcooler is the best thing you can have for recovery. I bought a 3/4 ton cupra nickle water cooled condenser from United, then installed garden hose fittings for the water side and 1/2" flares for the refrigerant side. I put that between my recovery machine and the bottle. refrigerant stays whatever temperature the water is going through it. If I'm only doing a few hundred pounds, i'll use my Appion and that for Chiller recovery rather than dragging the big recovery Unit to a site.

    It's better and cheaper than that thing United sells....if you have a water supply that is!

As 1 tank fills up, I isolate that tank (leaving the recovery system running on the tank-set), move my liquid hose to the liquid valve of the next tank in line and open the valve...repeat. It works well when you have a lot of refrigerant and have to use many tanks due to tank availability or space issues, etc.
    This is exactly how Rapid Recovery does it.
