    Why should refrigerant cylniders be filled to only 80% or capacity?

    • A.

      Liquid refrigerant expands with an increase in temperature

    • B.

      A cylinder completely filled liquid will burst if it warms up

    • C.

      Liquid refrigerant will foam in the cylinder

    • D.

      Both A and B

    Correct Answer
    D. Both A and B
    Explanation
    Refrigerant cylinders should be filled to only 80% of their capacity because liquid refrigerant expands when the temperature increases. If the cylinder is completely filled with liquid and it warms up, the expanding refrigerant can cause the cylinder to burst. Therefore, filling the cylinder to only 80% capacity allows for the expansion of the refrigerant without the risk of bursting the cylinder.

      Both A and B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Both A and B
    Explanation
    Both oil separation and filtration are methods used to remove contaminants in refrigeration systems. Oil separation is the process of removing oil from the refrigerant, as oil can mix with the refrigerant and cause issues in the system. Filtration, on the other hand, involves removing solid particles and debris from the refrigerant. Both methods are important in maintaining the efficiency and proper functioning of refrigeration systems by ensuring that contaminants are removed. Therefore, the correct answer is "Both A and B."

    • A.

      CFC

    • B.

      HCFC

    • C.

      Azeotropic

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. CFC
    Explanation
    CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) have the greatest negative effect on the ozone layer. These chemicals contain chlorine, which is released into the atmosphere and reacts with ozone molecules, causing their destruction. CFCs were commonly used in refrigeration and air conditioning systems, as well as in aerosol propellants. Due to their harmful impact on the ozone layer, the production and use of CFCs have been phased out under the Montreal Protocol. HCFCs (hydrochlorofluorocarbons) are also ozone-depleting substances, but their impact is less severe compared to CFCs. Azeotropic refrigerants are a type of blend that do not have a significant negative effect on the ozone layer.
