What should the high and low side pressure be in a R134A system?

What should the high and low side pressure be in a R134A system?

R134a Pressure Gauge Chart

Ambient Temperature (°F) Low Side High Side
80° 45-50 psi 175-220 psi
75° 40-45 psi 150-175 psi
70° 35-40 psi 140-165 psi
65° 25-35 psi 135-155 psi

What should AC pressure be with engine off?

That is normal when the compressor is off. When you turn it on, watch the pressures. The low side will drop to 25-40psi, and the high side will go to around 200psi.

What PSI should I recharge my AC to?

LOW pressure gauge: When the reading is between 25 and 40 psi with the A/C running, STOP. The system is fully charged and should be cooling normally. DO NOT add any more refrigerant. If the gauge is over 50 psi, you have overcharged the system with too much refrigerant.

What are normal operating pressures for R134A?

For normal running pressures in the R134a system, at the lowest temperature, the coil should run at 22 pounds per square inch that is 45-20, 25 degrees Fahrenheit. While at the highest temperature it should be 57 pounds per square inches that is 60-20,40 degrees Fahrenheit.

What are normal pressures for R134a?

How fast should AC pressures equalize?

Even the balanced port valves will typically equalize to within about 75 PSI. It would be nice to know exactly how much equalization does occur within 3-5 minutes.

Will overcharged AC freeze up?

If there is an excess of refrigerant, it can flood the compressor and damage the mechanical components. The extra amount of refrigerant in the system may cause the evaporator doesn’t complete the gasification process and that the compressor could work with liquid.

What kind of pressure chart is R134a?

In this case, R134a is the refrigerant. The recording of these readings is on a table with three columns. We have the temperature column, low side, and the high side pressure column. Usually, we refer to the table as the pressure chart. In this case, because the refrigerant is R134a, our chart will be the R134a pressure chart.

What is the temperature of the R-134a refrigerant?

R-134a Refrigerant Pressure Temperature Chart °F °C PSI KPA -49 -45 18.4 126.9 -48 -44.4 18 124.1 -47 -43.9 17.6 121.3 -46 -43.3 17.3 119.3

What is the saturation point of R-134a?

Understanding the pressure that your system is at as well as knowing what the saturation point is of R-134a will allow you to properly diagnose what is wrong with your system. Remember, that air conditioning is basically changing the pressure on the refrigerant until a state change is reached.

When does the suction pressure drop below zero?

When the pressure drops below zero PSIG, it’s expressed in a different scale which runs from zero to about thirty inches of mercury (thirty inches being an absolute vacuum). Originally Answered: What is the suction pressure of an R-134 in a low temperature deep freezer? It should be under 20 at most, anything more will not give freezing.
