RDA HC-3 Hydrocarbon Recovery Unit 110V


The HC-3 refrigerant / recycling unit is a simple to use, portable unit, suitable for use in all refrigerant transfer applications in the workshop or on site.

Developed from the established Caresaver unit, the HC-3 is an advanced service tool, specifically designed for recovering and handling hydrocarbon refrigerants. Re-developed with the service engineer in mind, the unit is smaller and lighter, whilst retaining robustness and reliability.

The HC-3 is semi-automatic and is suitable for operation with A3 and A2L hydrocarbon refrigerants used in domestic and automotive equipment.

The HC-3 unit can recover refrigerant in either liquid or vapour phase and changeover is automatic. During operation the on-board oil separator removes the entrained oil in recovered refrigerant, preventing contamination in the recovery cylinder.

The heat exchanger and air-cooled condenser makes the unit particularly suitable for applications where the refrigerant can only be recovered as vapour, for example through access valves on packaged air conditioning equipment.

The low-pressure override switch enables the units to operate intermittently in a vacuum, as requireed on refrigerant recovery for domestic cabinets.

A self-discharge feature is incorporated in the HC-3 to avoid mixing of refrigerants.
