Outdoor Unit Installation
4.

Refrigerant piping.

CAUTION
1) Use the flare nut fixed to the main unit. (To prevent cracking of the flare nut by aged deterioration.)
2) To prevent gas leakage, apply refrigeration oil only to the inner surface of the flare. (Use refrigeration oil for R410A.)
3) Use torque wrenches when tightening the flare nuts to prevent damage to the flare nuts and gas leakage.
• Align the centres of both flares and tighten the flare nuts 3 or 4
turns by hand. Then tighten them fully with the torque wrenches.

5.
Purging air and checking gas leakage.
• When piping work is completed, it is necessary to purge the air and check for gas leakage.
WARNING
1) Do not mix any substance other than the specified refrigerant (R410A) into the refrigeration cycle.
2) When refrigerant gas leaks occur, ventilate the room as soon and as much as possible.
3) R410A, as well as other refrigerants, should always be recovered and never be released directly into the environment.
4) Use a vacuum pump for R410A exclusively. Using the same vacuum pump for different refrigerants may damage the vacuum
pump or the unit.
• If using additional refrigerant, perform air purging from the refrigerant pipes and
indoor unit using a vacuum pump, then charge additional refrigerant.
• Use a hexagonal wrench (4mm) to operate the stop valve rod.
• All refrigerant pipe joints should be tightened with a torque wrench at the specified
tightening torque.
