Debris can be dispersed throughout the refrigerant circuit after A/C component damage. In order to maintain A/C operating efficiency, it is important to flush the refrigerant circuit after A/C component repairs.

 

Technical Background

In cases where an air conditioning system component (such as a compressor or other system component) has failed and debris from the compressor or component is circulated throughout the refrigerant circuit, the refrigerant circuit must be cleaned of any and all debris or damage to the replacement components will result.

Use the MAHLE R1234yf A/C Service Unit VAS581005 and the R1234yf Flush Kit RTI360831040 (Figure 1).

Used for effective refrigerant handling and air conditioning circuit flushing after air conditioning component failure.

The VAS 6338/1 Adapter Set for Refrigerant Circuits along with an additional adapter VAS 6338/38 for the expansion valve bypass this kit, contains the adapters necessary to complete a thorough flush operation of a contaminated circuit.

Elsa contains the technical information for each model regarding the necessary adapter applications and connections of the servicing station for the flush operation. See Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning >> Refrigerant R1234yf-Servicing >> 00 General Technical Data>> Refrigerant Circuit removing contaminates>> Refrigerant Circuit, Flushing with Refrigerant
