learn to read the chart for the type of freon you are running - a standard home unit will suck at 67 lbs and the high side will vary according to the outside ambient air temp - I get different readings in Las Vegas than I do in Portland!

Why air condition compressor is overheating?

IT COULD THAT YOUR SYSTEM IS EITHER OVERCHARGED OR UNDER CHARGED. ALSO CHECK YOUR FURNACE FILTER.AND MAKE SURE YOUR OUTDOOR UNIT is clear of dirt and obstructions. --------------------------------------------------------------- There are several reasons for a compressor to overheating High compression ratios are the result of either lower than normal suction pressures or higher than normal discharge pressures. Changes in suction pressure will affect the compression ratio more rapidly than changes in the discharge pressure. For this reason, it is important to keep the suction pressure at its highest possible value. Causes of low suction pressure can include incorrect sizing of components, misadjusted or defective metering devices (TXVs), loss of refrigerant charge, plugged driers or strainers, and excessive suction line pressure drop. Although not as sensitive to change as the suction pressure, the discharge pressure can still greatly affect the compression ratio. Keeping the discharge pressure within normal operating conditions is still important. Causes of high discharge pressure can include dirty condensing coils, undersized discharge line, a blockage or recirculation of condenser air, erratic condenser fan operation, refrigerant overcharge, noncondensibles in the system, and an undersized condenser.

Why you have to connect the pressurization unit pipes to the pump suction of the chilled water pump and not to discharge header?

As the chilled water system is a close system and basically consist of two loops i.e one loop from pump discharge to load & second loop from load to pump suction.Now,the effect of pressure drop will be more prominent in the second loop ,after the flow exit the load.Hence we have to alleviate the pressure where the effect of pressure loss & small water requirement is more prominent and i.e the suction side of the pump.

What can I use a portable suction unit for?

Most portable suction units are medical devices. They are often used in ambulances where mobile devices are needed. They work to aspirate or perform suction on the patient's lungs or airway to improve respiration. A portable suction unit is used in several medical applications.

How do you pump down a heat pump unit?

The process of pumping down a heat pump is quite simple. First you should switch the unit into air conditioning and put your compound gauge on the suction line. Make sure the unit is running. Then valve off the discharge line and watch your gauge pressure. When it pulls itself down into a vacuum the heat pump is pumped down within itself. Make sure to valve off the suction line to make sure no refrigerant is released back into the air handling unit. You should now be able to lay some wet rags on the valves to protect them if you desire to sweat the unit away from the line set.
