Acid-Away® is a unique patented chemical treatment for use in air conditioning and refrigeration systems that have experienced a burnout, or operating systems that are showing a buildup in acid content. It circulates quickly throughout the system and chemically neutralizes acids that are always left in an air conditioning or refrigeration system after a burnout occurs. Once neutralized, this acid can no longer continue its corrosive attack and cause another burnout. Acid-Away® may be used in either hermetic or semi-hermetic compressors that operate with standard CFC or HCFC refrigerants using mineral oil and alkybenzene type refrigeration oils. Acid Away® has been tested in a wide variety of compressor sizes, types and brands with a wide range of burnout conditions. U.S. Patent No. 5,503,757.
