    AC gas

    HiChill 30 is a replacement gas that can be used in R134a systems that does not require a license to buy or use. It is a hydrocarbon gas.

    true in the states you can buy cans of one shot , they have a shrader valve , you conect the can on the low pressure side open the tap and the gas gets sucked in ,

    1.250 Kg`s is a lot of gas a falcon takes 760+-50 grams
    I read the instructions on the Walmart offering. You hook it up and run the system and turn off the gas when there are no longer any bubbles in the sight glass.

    So what do they do when the system doesn't have a glass?

    Most don't anymore,cost saving.

    Overcharging a system is not good

    Weird,in the US they are very strict with environmental issue in some areas,but very very lax in others.

    What's BS?
    The use of refrigerants in contradiction to the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989?

    It's a licensed and strictly regulated trade for a reason.
    The one shot products are not supplied in AU for this very reason.

    Thanks for clarifying eevo.

    The Hychill products are often used in the farming equipment, as it's easily accessed, and cheap. There are some concerns with flammability, but this is the way many of the refrigerants are heading (R1234YF is a flammable replacement for r134a, which is in most automobiles, will be phased out over the coming years).

    Last time I was audited by the Australian refrigeration Council, we were discussing Hychill, and according to the ARC, non licensed filling of a system 'designed' to be used with a refrigerant can be considered a breach. It's an evolving area of refrigeration which the law is attempting to catch up with, so watch this space.
