WARNING: HFC-134a will dissolve oil and some non-metallic materials, dry the skin, and, in heavy concentrations, may displace enough oxygen to cause asphyxiation. In handling this refrigerant, protect the hands and eyes and avoid breathing fumes.
CAUTION: Always use the compressor pumpdown function in the Control Test mode to turn on the evaporator pump and lock out the compressor when transferring refrigerant. Liquid refrigerant may flash into a gas and cause possible freezeup when the chiller pressure is below 35 psig (241 kPa).

Refrigerant Leak Testing
Refrigerant Leak Rate
Test After Service, Repair, or Major Leak
TO PRESSURIZE WITH DRY NITROGEN: Another method of leak testing is to pressure with nitrogen only and use soap bubble solution or an ultrasonic leak detector to determine if leaks are present. This should only be done if all refrigerant has been evacuated from the vessel.
