A new cleaning fluid for air conditioning and refrigeration systems, called Emkarate™ RL Opti-Flush, is said to provide a variety of performance and handling benefits during retrofits, repairs, and service. Tests show it can remove up to 99% of deposits due to contamination, the company says. At the same time, it has a favorable safety and regulatory profile because it is biodegradable, nonvolatile, nonflammable, and nonhazardous, says the company. The product is compatible with currently used lubricants and has been tested for compatibility with system components.
