I have two cars that take R-12 that will be getting service, a bunch of cars that have 134a, and then are installing an r-410 mini split system in my home.
The R-12 system has mineral oil, the 134 has PAG and the 410 has POE.
Nylog and/or it's vendors seem to imply that the synthetic one can be used universally if desired, but I'm curious if that is sound.
I'm not an HVAC person by trade, so I won't use a bottle of nylog in my lifetime. I'll use a little on the replacement schraders and any o-rings I might service on the r-12 cars, and desire to use it on the flare connections on the 410a mini split system when I attach linesets.
So I suppose really the question is if it is prudent to use red nylog on the r-12 systems, or if I'm ok just using blue on everything. Blue will have more utility for the long run.
Money isn't really an issue, more just having excess chemicals that I'll never use. Still, if it is prudent to use the right nylog red on an r-12 system with mineral oil, then so be it.
Thanks for your advice!
I don't think you will have any issues is a single type of Nylog. Believe it is more of a contamination issue. Which I think is pretty unlikely by using a little nylog.
Thanks! Question is which one should I use? Seems like the synthetic one (blue) would be the better bet, but not sure if there are challenges with application of one over the other, or something like that...
