Flushing air-conditioning systems is extremely important when repairs are carried out or if a compressor is damaged. The flushing process removes impurities and harmful substances from the air-conditioning circuit.
Flushing is necessary whenever professional repairs are carried out, as well as to prevent the need for further expensive repairs at a later date. In addition, flushing protects the warranty in the event of claims against the supplier and guarantees customer satisfaction.
However, do not flush compressors, expansion/throttle valves, or filter dryers and/or accumulators. Use adapters to bridge these components during the flushing process. Once the flushing process is complete, the valves and filters must be replaced.
