Switching from small cans to 30lb for charging

mthomas58 on Sat May 24, 2008 8:45 AM User is offline

Year: 1987
Make: Porsche
Model: 911
Engine Size: 3.2
Refrigerant Type: 134a
Ambient Temp: 86
Pressure Low: 20
Pressure High: 235

Will be recharging soon using a 30lb tank and a scale to more accurately measure the charge.

I used a pan of hot water for the small cans.

Do I need a heating blanket for the tank?

Thanks!
Mark

Maybe in some climates. I have never needed one in Phoenix. But I also slowly charge a system as liquid through the suction side.
