Acid Neutralizer - Completely Eliminate and Prevent Acid In Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Systems!
Highside's Acid Neutralizer is designed to chemicaly neutralize and prevent acids that are formed in air conditioning and refrigeration systems due to refrigerant and refrigeration oil break down, moisture and compressor burnout. Acid Neutralizer is recommended to prevent the formation of acid and for systems that are showing signs of acid build up or where a compressor burnout has occurred.
- No Solids or Solid residuals.
- Easy to Use, No Complicated Charts.
- Compatible With All Refrigerants.
- Compatible With All Lubricants.
- Works Fast, Circulates Quickly.
- Will Not Harm System Components.
- Can Prevent System Burnout.
Safe and Compatible In All Refrigerants, Including CFC's, HFC's and HCFC's.
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE: When the use of an acid test kit indicated no acid or low acid levels, Acid Neutralizer can be used to prevent the formation of acid or neutralize existing acid by adding one ounce of Acid Neutralizer for each 64 ounces of compressor oil.
MAINTENANCE & REPAIR: When acid related problems are evident or if a test of the system shows acid is present at medium levels, Acid Neutralizer can be used to neutralize existing acid by adding one ounce of Acid Neutralizer for each 48 ounces of compressor oil.
BURNOUT CONDITION: Should high levels of acid be detected or if burnout has occurred, Acid Neutralizer can be used to neutralize existing acid by adding one ounce of Acid Neutralizer for each 24 ounces of compressor oil. NOTICE: If burnout has occurred, follow standard industry practices and change out the compressor. Install all recommended filter/driers then evacuate and charge the system with the proper refrigerant.
Compatible with All Refrigeration Lubricants, Including Mineral Oil, Alkybenzene, Polyol Ester, Polyalkylene Glycols, and Polyalphaolifins.
HOW TO ADD ACID NEUTRALIZER TO A SYSTEM.
- Use a standard hand type oil pump to introduce Acid Neutralizer in the high pressure (liquid line) side of a sealed system.
- Acid Neutralizer can be added directly to the oil in the compressor's crankcase prior to installing and charging the system.
- Using a standard manifold gauge, Acid Neutralizer can be pushed into the low side of an operating system with refrigerant or the pressure from the high side of the system.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CHARGING ACID NEUTRALIZER TO REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS
- DETERMINE THE SYSTEM'S COMPRESSOR OIL VOLUME.
- USE AN ACID TEST KIT TO ESTABLISH ACID LEVEL.
- QUANTITY TO USE : Use at least one (1) ounce of Acid Neutralizer.
- ZERO or LOW ACID LEVEL - Add one (1) ounce of Acid Neutralizer for each sixty-four (64) ounces of compressor oil volume.
- MEDIUM ACID LEVEL - Add one (1) ounce of Acid Neutralizer for each forty-eight (48) ounces of compressor oil volume.
- HIGH ACID LEVEL - Add one (1) one ounce of Acid Neutralizer for each twenty-four (24) ounces of compressor oil volume.
METHOD 1: HIGHSIDE'S SYSTEM INJECTOR.
Use with standard manifold gauge. Unscrew the cap and fill the system injector to the top with Acid Neutralizer. Fill completely so there is no trapped air. Tighten screw top. Connect the system injector to the low side hose on manifold gauge. Connect low side hose to the low side of the system and high side of the system and purge lines. Slowly open valves on manifold gauge and with the high side pressure, inject the Acid Neutralizer into the low side of the system.
METHOD 2: STANDARD CHARGING HOSES.
Place the proper amount of Acid Neutralizer in a charging hose and connect one end to the low side access valve on the compressor and the other end to a source of refrigerant. A 36" charging hose holds 22ml or 3/4 ounces. Be sure hose is full to avoid any trapped air. Make sure all fittings are tight. Open the valve at the refrigerant source. Now with the source of the refrigerant above the access valve, crack the access valve very slowly and force the Acid Neutralizer into the system with refrigerant.
METHOD 3: STANDARD OIL CHARGING PUMP.
A standard hand operated oil charging pump can be used to introduce Acid Neutralizer into a refrigeration system. Use the oil pump to add the proper amount of Acid Neutralizer to the high pressure ( liquid line ) side of the system. Be sure system is completely turned off when using this method.
METHOD 4: ADD DIRECTLY TO THE COMPRESSOR OIL.
Acid Neutralizer can be added directly to the refrigeration oil in the compressor's crankcase prior to installing and charging the system. Avoid prolonged exposure to air as most new refrigeration oils and Acid Neutralizer are very hygroscopic.
- ALWAYS determine the compressor's oil volume before preceding.
- ALWAYS add Acid Neutralizer to a system very slowly
- ALWAYS use at least one (1) ounce of Acid Neutralizer.
- ALWAYS keep Acid Neutralizer and refrigeration oils tightly closed. Avoid contamination.
OK TO EXCEED RECOMMENDED AMOUNTS
EXCEEDING THE RECOMMENDED AMOUNT OF ACID NEUTRALIZER WILL NOT HARM AIR CONDITIONING OR REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS AS LONG AS THE AMOUNT OF ACID NEUTRALIZER USED IS NOT MORE THAN 10% OF THE COMPRESSOR'S TOTAL OIL VOLUME.
