SAE - J2851
Recovery Equipment for Contaminated R-134a or R-1234yf Refrigerant from Mobile Automotive Air Conditioning Systems
|Publication Date:||1 September 2022|
This SAE Standard covers equipment used to remove contaminated R-134a and/or R-1234yf refrigerant from mobile air conditioning (MAC) systems.
The purpose of this SAE Standard is to provide minimum performance and operating requirements for equipment used to recover contaminated refrigerant or to recover refrigerant at facilities which do not service MAC systems. Any contaminated refrigerant recovered with this equipment is to be returned to an EPA approved refrigerant reclamation facility that will process it appropriately as per AHRI 700 standard or dispose of it. Refrigerant recovered with this equipment cannot be recycled. Refrigerant recovery equipment is required to ensure adequate refrigerant recovery and to reduce emissions during the removal of refrigerant from mobile air conditioning systems.
Equipment shall be certified to meet all performance requirements outlined in this document and international and regional construction and safety requirements as outlined in Section 8 of this document.
