The cylinder temperature rises. The boiling refrigerant becomes vigorous and charging returns to a rapid rate. It is not long, though, before all the heat has been taken from the water and more hot water must be added. The Vizi-Vapr is an example of how a device can remove liquid from a cylinder and apply it to the system in the form of a vapor. See Fig. 1-52. No heat is required. This eliminates the hazards of using a torch and hot water. The change from a liquid to a gas or vapor Fig. 1-51 The Cap-Gage is a pocketknife-type cap tube gage with 10 stainless steel gages to measure the most popular sizes of cap tubes.

However, it must be used to measure volt-amperes (VA) instead of watts. To measure watts, it is necessary to use DC only or convert the VA to watts by using the power factor. The power factor times the volt-amperes produces the actual power consumed in watts. Since most cooling equipment use AC, it is necessary to convert to watts by this method. A number of factors can be checked with electrical instruments. For example, electrical instruments can be used to check the flow rate from a centrifugal water pump, the condition of a capacitor, or the character of a start or run winding of an electric motor.
