I'd like to know too. You might have better luck if you repost this in Ask Professor Silberstein! down at the bottom. It's A/C and refrigeration related stuff.

    Leak sealant

    I was wondering if anyone has used cliplight leak sealant or a similar product for sealing refrigeration leaks and does it work? I personally have never used this type of product and am rather nervous about it. I have one customer who would like me to use this product on his 5 ton split system, although I told him this would not be a 100 percent assured repair. I have talked to a refrigeration contractor who has used a similar product on a 404A walk in unit. He stated that the lineset was very difficult to get to and the injected sealant he used was formulated for 404a and it worked perfectly. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I have used this product on some systems where the leak was buried. As long as you evacuate the system and get it as dry as you can it works well. If you have excessive moisture in the system the compressor tends to die. I was told by my sales rep the sealant seeks the moisture

    Know a tech that used the stuff last year on a RTU with multiple leaks on the condenser coil. Too many to repair. New condenser coil lead time 6 weeks. Installed this stuff to see if it would get them by till the new coil arrived. Said the unit was still cooling and had a full charge when he recovered the refrigerant.
