Quality Control Program:  Refrigerants

Quality assurance:  FJC’s is unmatched.   In house testing provides consistently exceptional results for our refrigerants for purity, moisture, acidity and non-condensable gases.  You can be confident our refrigerants meet or exceed AHRI 700 specifications.  In fact, we guarantee it. Moisture testing Conducted using a Karl Fischer titration. A sample is taken from tank and introduced to a titration cell and electricity is used to perform an oxidation reaction and introduce iodine into the cell. The

An automotive air conditioning system is a closed loop.  As the refrigerant moves through the system it is subject to pressure variations.  This pressure changes the phase of the refrigerant from liquid to gas and back again.  As these phase changes occur, the temperature also changes, heat is released, and “air conditioning is made”.   Because of this,  one side of the system is always “high pressure”, and the other is “low pressure”.  It is important

FJC Refrigerant Cans

Top quality refrigerants demand top quality cans! All FJC refrigerant cans are produced in the USA by  the world’s leading manufacturer of two-piece steel containers.  Our supplier focuses solely on automotive and industrial refrigerants, specialty chemicals, and both high-and low-pressure gas applications.   That specialization shows in the quality and safety of their cans, especially when contrasted against the less-expensive Chinese-produced cans used by some other companies. You may have noticed the patented pressure relief trademark

FJC Introduces New Professional USB Rechargeable Work Light with UV Leak Detection

FJC Introduces New Professional USB  Rechargeable Work Light with UV Leak Detection

New for 2019 is FJC’s Multi-Function Work Light.  This impact-resistant and waterproof gadget offers the latest in technology and convenience.  Its COB (chip on board) technology means the LED chip is built directly into the circuit board eliminating the need for additional packaging and increasing efficiency.  It provides three powerful lighting modes:  low LED, high LED and extreme UV light detection and the 120 degree beam provides larger coverage, maximizing the illumination distance up to

Automotive air conditioning is a self-contained system which cools the cabin of a car by changing the phase of  refrigerant from gas to liquid and back again by applying and releasing pressure on it. Each of the parts of the system is connected by tubing or hoses to form a closed loop through which the refrigerant flows.  Since this is a continuous circle, there’s no specific start or end point; everything occurs simultaneously. However, we
