Recovery machine for A2L refrigerants

RecoverXLT2-APUSA: Yellow Jacket has introduced a refrigerant recovery machine for lower GWP, “mildly flammable” R32, R1234yf and R1234ze refrigerants.

Evolved from the RecoverXLTTM recovery machine, the new RecoverXLT2-AP features a twin cylinder 1/2hp oil-less compressor and gravity drain condenser.

Its ambient pressure switch and 3m power cord comply with the current safety requirements.

While specifically designed for the new lower GWP refrigerants it can also be used for CFC and HFC refrigerants, including R22, R404A, R407, R410A, R448A and R449A.

Additional features include safe venting of case interior prior to start up; a low pressure switch which stops recovery above ambient pressure for leaking systems to prevent pulling air into recovery cylinders; a low pressure bypass for recovery of leak-free systems; and patented single valve control for easy changeover from liquid to vapour to purge.

Designed and assembled in the USA, the Yellow Jacket RecoverXLT2-AP also includes an auto purge feature to clear residual refrigerant for quick change from one refrigerant to another, a condenser with gravity drain to keep recovery tank up to 10° cooler for reliable operation in high ambient conditions and a one-year warranty.
