TESTING FOR ACID IS AN IMPORTANT PART
OF REGULAR PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE.
The Acid Test makes testing for acid in air conditioning and refrigeration
safer and less expensive than ever, while requiring only a small oil
for accurate results in seconds. The Acid Test provides an accurate
quick way to test for acid in all refrigeration oils.
The Acid Test is like having your own portable acid testing laboratory
for eliminating the expense and inconvenient delays for laboratory analysis.
SIMPLE DIRECTIONS FOR USING
Material in vials should be blue or violet when opened.
1.Remove top from plastic canister and peel away protective
2.Remove the twist off cap from one vial.
3.Partially fill vial with an equal amount of test oil to a level 8mm
or 1/4 inch
below neck of vial.
4.Replace cap and tighten securely.
5.Vigorously shake vial for 2 to 5 seconds.
6.Visually check the color of the resulting material in vial.
Blue or Violet -No Acid Present
(Indicates a nominal Ph equivalent of 6.8 or above)
Blue or violet indicates that there is no acid
present. No further steps are necessary
to neutralize or remove acid in the system.
Green -Moderately Acidic
(Indicates a nominal Ph equivalent of 6.8 to 5.2)
Green indicates there is a moderate level of
acid in the system. It is likely that acid
formation will continue unless the acid is neutralized or the oil
is changed. Action to
neutralize or remove the acid is recommended.
(Indicates a nominal Ph equivalent of to 5.2 or below)
Yellow indicates the presence of acid levels
that are potentially dangerous and may
cause damage to system components. Immediate action may be necessary
or remove the acid in the system.
The Acid Test is for use in all refrigeration
oil, including mineral oil,
alkylbenzene, polyol ester, polyalkylene
glycol and polyalphaolefin.
NOTICE: The Acid Test is designed to indicate the nominal Ph
ranges present in refrigeration lubricants. Any action or inaction
as a result of this test is at the sole discretion of the user.
Blue or violet color indicates a nominal Ph of 6.8 or higher,
green color indicates a nominal Ph of 6.8 to 5.2, yellow color
indicates a nominal Ph of 5.2 or below. Some Polyolester lubricants
are slightly acidic and may test as acidic due to various additives
or manufacturing processes. Contact the lubricant manufacturer
for acceptable and expected acid levels. Refrigeration oils containing
high levels of acid are dangerous and can burn skin and damage
equipment. handle with extreme care. Disposal should be in accordance
with local, state and federal regulations.
·HIGHSIDE'S ACID NEUTRALIZER can
be used to control
and eliminate acid in air conditioning and refrigeration systems.
