Whether speaking of an AC or Refrigeration system, the condition of the refrigerant itself is the lifeblood of any system. Refrigerants are a constant source of contamination, via broken down refrigerant oil, moisture, mixing of refrigerants, acids, or even just water or air……They all work to damage the refrigeration process. Compressor motor winding are coated with wax which insulates the electrical winding of the motor from the refrigerant itself. Tainted refrigerant works to break down this wax, causing the winding of the motor to deteriorate, causing compressor failure and big cost to the customer.
