R 12 30 lb. can question

BMW 635CSi on Sat June 13, 2009 2:15 PM User is offline

I have a old can that is the 30 pound size.
The weight now of the can is now 8 pounds.
How much freon is in there?
Also, I have several 1 pound cans of R12,
can I somehow transfer them to the big can?

No tare weight on the can, I presume. I'm sure that it's at least six pounds.

There may be a one-way valve to prevent adding refrigerant to the can.

Empty weight of those cans is-- about 8 pounds. So yours is going to be empty or nearly so. What is the pressure in the can? Do you feel anything sloshing in the bottom when you shake it?

Yes,
The can sloshes around. Just can't tell how much liquid is in side.
It has pressure and freon comes out if I twist the valve.
Should there be a tare somewhere on the metal canister?
