As excess oil accumulates in pipelines and retains chlorine residues and humidity, this can lead to chemical reactions in synthetic oils, which will ultimately lead to compressor damage due to insufficient lubrication.
The right time
Three plus one good reasons to replace outdated R22 split air conditioners: In regard to energy efficiency, application area and comfort, air conditioning technology has grown considerably during recent years.
Principle of Replace Technology
Mitsubishi Electric has developed several processes that for the first time ever allow use of the existing pipeline network when changing air conditioning equipment, even when replacing refrigerant R22 with R410A.
Three processes to continue the use of existing pipelines
R22 systems use mineral oil. Operated at a higher pressure, R410A air conditioning systems, on the other hand, require high-grade synthetic oils. Synthetic oils can cause chemical reactions which will ultimately lead to compressor damage due to insufficient lubrication.
Drastic savings in time and material during installation, sustainable lower operating costs and reduction of CO2 emission are only a few of the advantages involved in a conversion to R410A air conditioning systems.
