Handivac Light Commercial Recovery Unit

Item #: RTO Handivac Light Recovery Unit

An oil free compressor works in the same way as their oil-lubricated counterparts – drawing in air, decreasing its volume, and forcing it into a pressurized storage tank. The difference is that no oil is used in the compression cylinder. Instead, lubrication and cooling are achieved by the liquid refrigerant passing through the unit. 

The HandiVac unit should not be ran for more than 30 minutes with straight refrigerant vapor. The vapor does not carry any oil and the compressor will not have lubrication running through it. With that being said, if you allow the unit to cool down for twenty to thirty minutes in between that amount of time on vapor all should be good. The HandiVac can draw vapor off of a recovery tank & force compressed gas back into the vapor side of A/C system. There is now a liquid push/pull process happening at this time.
