SAE - Automotive Air-Conditioning Refrigerant Service Guide
|Publication Date:||1 July 1996|
The purpose of this book is to help automotive air-conditioning service professionals comply with federal and state certification requirements. To do that this book provides information about:
1.) the damage that R-12 and certain other refrigerants do to the earth's environment,
2.) how to minimize the escape of air-conditioning refrigerants into the atmosphere,
3.) the service equipment available and the importance of complying with SAE standards for both service practices and the selection and use of service equipment, and
4.) retrofitting older air-conditioning systems to the new, environmentally friendly refrigerant, R-134a.
It is assumed that you are or will become familiar with automotive air-conditioning systems and how they are diagnosed and repaired.
