R134a recovery tank usage Sign In

 
I have a recovery tank full of new r134a refrigerant and my ac recovery machine is broken. I want to use the recovery tank and manifold gauges to add r143a to vehicles but not sure how to do it, I think I just use the blue port on the recovery tank any advice would be great thanks

The blue valve with deliver vapor and the red valve will deliver liquid. Do not charge liquid if the engine is running.

You're going to have to use a scale to measure what you are charging. That is very important.
