I don't know everything about air conditioning.....but I do know more than you.

That still makes me far from an expert.

Mods passed this?

Hychill is a flammable gas which is why it isn't used in cars. It does tend to dry out the valves a little more than usual but is good at moving oil around system and runs a cooler return line and a lower discharge line.....only downside is if you have an accident, your car and you will become a fireball. Otherwise, great refrigerant.we use it everyday

oh, err, cool! Thanks.

Have you ever heard of or even used Prahran Air conditioning?

Anyway, Hychill... So, if it "dries" out the "valves", what does it do to the desiccant in a receiver / dryer?

Nothing from what I know, it's a liquid refrigerant like any other, but as I said, it is good a circulating the oil so everything is nicely lubed. I saw your tx valve, that is no doubt a moisture problem and oil has turned to sludge.
Never heard of that a/c company, are they Australia wide??

Yeah, dryer failed who knows when, system needs thorough flush.

It's a service requirement to change every two or three years, but nobody does.

I recommend 5 years, but this one is from 1988!

I use a flushing agent which is fantastic for removing all traces of moisture. It again is highly flammable and smells like thinners, but we use it with nitrogen and a flushing gun and it works a treat. Definatly need to replace filter/receiver every 5-7 years, but it does seem that the system you are working on had a leak and they kept the air con on which kept sucking in moisture. Compressor will go soon too.....just saying
