REFRIGERANT PIPING WORK
7-1
NOTE
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
• For refrigerant pipe of outdoor units, see the installation
manual attached to the outdoor unit.
• Before refrigerant piping work, check which type of refrigerant is used. Proper operation is not possible if the types of
refrigerant are not the same.
• The outdoor unit is charged with refrigerant.
DANGER
• Refrigerant gas may produce toxic gas if it comes in contact
with fire such as from a fan heater, stove or cooking device.
Exposure to this gas could cause severe injury or death.
NOTE
• Use a pipe cutter and flare suitable for the type of refrigerant.
• To prevent dust, moisture or other foreign matter from
infiltrating the tube, either pinch the end or cover it with tape.
• Do not allow anything other than the designated refrigerant
to get mixed into the refrigerant circuit, such as air, etc. If
any refrigerant gas leaks while working on the unit, ventilate
the room thoroughly right away.
7-2
• Apply ester oil or ether oil around the flare portions before
connecting.
• The flare nuts used must be those included with the main
body.
• Over-tightening may damage the flare and cause a refrigerant leakage.
Not recommended but in case of emergency
You must use a torque wrench but if you are obliged to
install the unit without a torque wrench, you may follow the
installation method mentioned below.
After the work is finished, make sure to check that there
is no gas leak.
When you keep on tightening the flare nut with a spanner,
there is a point where the tightening torque suddenly increases. From that position, further tighten the flare nut the
angle shown below:
Table 4

Piping insulation
• Execute heat insulation work completely on both sides of
the gas pipe and the liquid pipe. Otherwise, a water leakage
can result sometimes.
• The temperature of the gas pipe can reach up to approximately 250°F, so use insulation which is sufficiently resistant.
• Also, in cases where the temperature and humidity of the
refrigerant pipe sections might exceed 86°F or RH80%,
reinforce the refrigerant insulation. (13/16 in. or thicker)
Condensate may form on the surface of the insulating
material.
• Check the pipe connector for gas leaking, then insulate it as
shown in the drawing below.
• Make absolutely sure to execute heat insulation works on
the pipe-connecting section after checking gas leakage by
thoroughly studying the following figure and using the
attached heat insulating materials for fitting. (Fasten both
ends with the clamps (accessory).)
• Wrap the sealing pad (accessory) only around the insulation for the joints on the gas pipe side.

Brazing refrigerant piping
• Before brazing local refrigerant pipe, nitrogen gas shall be
blown through the pipe to expel air from the pipe.
If your brazing is done without nitrogen gas blowing, a large
amount of oxide film develops inside the pipe, and could
cause system malfunction.
• When brazing the refrigerant pipe, only begin brazing after
having carried out nitrogen substitution or while inserting
nitrogen into the refrigerant pipe. Once this is done, connect
the indoor unit with a flared or a flanged connection.
• Nitrogen should be set to 2.9psi. with a pressure-reducing
valve if brazing while inserting nitrogen into the pipe.

10-1 HOW TO CONNECT WIRES
〈Methods of wiring power supply, units and connecting
remote controller wires〉
• Power supply wire
Remove the control box lid (2) and connect wires to the
power supply terminal block (3P) inside. In doing this, pull
the wires inside through rubber bush A and clamp the wires
along with other wires using clamp A, untightening the clip
of clamp A by pressing. After the connection, tighten clamp
A as before.
• Transmission wire and remote controller wire
Remove the control box lid (1) and pull the wires inside
through rubber bush B and connect to the transmission
terminal block (6P).
• After connection, attach sealing pad
(Be sure to attach it to prevent water from infiltrating the unit
from the outside.)

CAUTION
• Even if the control box lid (1)(2) is removed, pull the remote
controller wire, transmission wire and the power supply wire
inside the unit so that the wires do not come into contact
with the opening section of the metal casing.
• Pass conduits through the wall and secure along with the
refrigerant pipe in order to prevent external pressure being
applied to transmission wire and power supply wire.
• Arrange the wires and fix a lid firmly so that the lid does not
float during wiring work.
• Do not clamp remote controller wire and transmission wire
together with power supply wire. Doing so may cause
malfunction.
• Remote controller wire, transmission wire and power supply
wire should be located at least 5 in. from other electric
wires. Not following this guideline may result in malfunction
due to electrical noise.
WARNING
• Never connect power supply wiring to the terminal block for
remote controller wiring as this could damage the entire
system.
• Use only specified wire and connect wires to the terminal
tightly. Be careful wires do not place external stress on
terminals. Keep wires in neat order so as to not obstruct
other equipment. Make sure that the electric box lid fits
tightly. Incomplete connections could result in overheating
and, in worse case, result in electric shock or fire.
