Are you using the right type of o-rings?

Written by: Caroline Acebedo

The employees at Marks Air recently attended the Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) annual training event and trade show in Orlando.  One of the many things we learned in training classes were the various differences in O-rings.  There are MANY different types of material being used to make o-rings.  There are companies out there trying to cut costs, and they are using materials that do not work well with system lubricants and refrigerants.  Some of the material being used will break down when exposed to refrigerant and lubricants and cause system leaks.  It is extremely important that you are getting your o-rings (as well as your parts) from a reputable source!

We are lucky that we have the various training events offered by MACS so that we can become educated on industry matters such as this.
