Safety
CAUTION! Before operating this unit, please read this manual in its
entirety. It is important that you have a thorough understanding of the
procedures outlined in this manual. Failure to follow these procedures
could void all manufacturer warranties.
WARNING! This unit is capable of over-pressurizing a DOT recovery
cylinder. Ensure that you are using the proper DOT recovery cylinder
for the refrigerant that you are recovering. NOTE: R-410 is capable of
pressures exceeding 600 psi. Typical DOT recovery cylinders are rated
at 350 psi with a pressure relief set at 550 psi. These cylinders should
not be used with R-410A. Only cylinders rated at 400 psi with the relief
valve setting at 600 psi should be used to for R-410A. Failure to use the
proper cylinder can be extremely dangerous.
BEFORE handling refrigerants, read the material safety data sheet from
the refrigerant manufacturer.
CAUTION! These instructions are for personnel trained and
experienced in the handling of refrigerants. Unqualified individuals
should not attempt to operate this equipment. Failure to follow proper
operating procedures may cause personal injury.
WARNING! Inhalation of high concentrations of refrigerant vapors is
harmful and may cause heart irregularities, unconsciousness, or death.
Deliberate inhalation of refrigerants is extremely dangerous and death
can occur without warning. Vapors reduce oxygen available for
breathing and are heavier than air. Decomposition products are
hazardous. Liquid contact may cause frostbite. All refrigerant
containers, equipment, and hoses are under pressure.
HAZARDOUS AREA WARNING: This instrument has not been
designed to be intrinsically safe for use in areas classified as hazardous
locations. DO NOT use it in hazardous (classified) locations.

2090-0217 Rev 6
COMBUSTIBLE/FLAMMABLE GAS WARNING: For your safety, DO
NOT use this device to recover refrigerants which are rated as
combustible/flammable gases
(e.g. ASHRAE - A2 or A3 rated
refrigerants).
WARNING: Inhalation of high concentrations of refrigerant vapors is
harmful and may cause heart irregularities, unconsciousness, or death.
Deliberate inhalation of refrigerants is extremely dangerous and may
cause death. Vapor reduces the oxygen available for breathing and is
heavier than air. Decomposition products are hazardous. Liquid contact
can cause frostbite. All refrigerant containers, equipment, and hoses
are under high pressure.
WARNING: Before starting the unit you MUST OPEN the outlet port on
the Stinger and open the port to the recovery tank. Read entire
operating instruction manual before use. Failure to open the outlet port
will cause permanent damage to the unit and void the warranty.
CAUTION: All refrigerant hoses, recovery tanks, refrigerant lines, the
STINGER unit, and other vessels containing refrigerants should be
handled at all times as if under high pressure.
GENERAL SAFETY GUIDELINES:
x Avoid breathing high concentrations of vapors.
x Use with sufficient ventilation to keep operator exposure below
recommended limits, especially in enclosed and low lying areas.
x Avoid contact of liquid with eyes and prolonged skin exposure.
x Wear safety goggles and protective gloves.
x Make sure the power switch is in the OFF position before plugging this
equipment into an AC power source.
x Unplug unit before servicing; otherwise, an electrical shock hazard will be
present when the unit is disassembled.
x Use caution when connecting or disconnecting hoses. Improper usage
may result in refrigerant burns (frostbite). If a significant refrigerant leak
occurs, proceed immediately to a well-ventilated area.
x Do not apply open flame or heat unit above 125 qF.

minimum. Use the following guide for choosing the proper extension cord:
18 gauge cord – maximum length 10 feet
16 gauge cord – maximum length 25 feet
14 gauge cord – maximum length 50 feet
12 gauge cord – maximum length 100 feet
x Use approved hoses: Use refrigerant connection hoses that are
approved to SAE J2196-1992. These hoses must provide a shut-off device
within 12 inches of the ends, and must be approved for outdoor usage.
x Use approved recovery tank: Use a DOT approved refrigerant recovery
tank made for use with the type of refrigerant being recovered. Note that
R-410 is capable of pressures exceeding 600 psi. Typical DOT recovery
cylinders are rated at 350 psi with a pressure relief set at 550 psi. These
cylinders should not be used with R-410A. Only cylinders rated at 400 psi
with the relief valve setting at 600 psi should be used to for R-410A.
Failure to use the proper cylinder can be extremely dangerous!

Vapor/Liquid Recovery Operations
Perform the following steps when recovering refrigerant that is either in vapor or
liquid form.
NOTE: Refer to “R-410A Recovery – Special Notes” on page 20 when
recovering R-410A.
1.
Turn off all electrical or mechanical power to the refrigerant device to be
evacuated.
2.
Make proper hose connections. Connect refrigerant hoses to recovery
cylinder, STINGER, and A/C system as shown on page 15. When possible,
use a manifold-gauge set to recover refrigerant from both the high- and lowside service ports. This will speed up the recovery rates.
CAUTION: If the 80% tank full shutoff cord is not used, then use
a scale (P/N 2010-0000) to monitor the refrigerant level in the
recovery cylinder in order to prevent overfilling.
CAUTION: When recovering R-410A, you must use a recovery
cylinder approved for use with R-410A. Standard recovery
cylinders with 350 psi working pressures are not approved for
use with R-410A.
3.
4.
Turn the inlet valve to the “CLOSED” position, the outlet valve to the
“OPEN” position, and the PURGE valve to the “RECOVER” position. Open
the vapor valve on the DOT recovery tank.
Use the rear mounted power switch to turn ON the STINGER.
NOTE: When recovering liquid, in rare instances a “knocking” sound may
come from the compressor. This indicates that too much liquid is
entering the compressor. The inlet valve must be regulated
(closed) until this knocking sound stops, otherwise compressor
damage could occur. Pumping liquid when the compressor is
knocking will damage the compressor, reduce the compressor life,
and void the compressor’s warranty. This condition is rare and
should not occur under normal recovery operations.
2090-0217 Rev 6
13
5.
Slowly open the inlet valve until the Stinger’s compressor turns on. Continue
to slowly regulate the inlet valve to the full open position.
WARNING: If the compressor begins to “knock,” regulate the inlet
valve toward the closed position until the knocking stops. Failure
to do so could void the compressor’s warranty.
6.
Proceed with the recovery process until the system pressure shows a
vacuum. Turn OFF the STINGER for a minimum of 5 minutes; after which,
determine the amount of refrigerant remaining in the system. Repeat this
step until system pressure is below mandatory EPA levels.
Purge the STINGER as follows:
a. Turn OFF the STINGER.
b. Turn the inlet and purge valves to their “PURGE” position (both pointing
DOWN), and the outlet valve to its “OPEN” position (pointing UP).
c. Turn ON the STINGER and monitor the inlet gauge. The purge
operation is complete when the inlet pressure gauge shows a vacuum.
7.
Standard Recovery Hose Connections
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR LIQUID RECOVERY
The Stinger can be used for pumping virgin refrigerant on an intermittent basis.
Unlike recovered refrigerant, virgin refrigerant does not contain oil.
CAUTION: Routinely pumping virgin refrigerant through the STINGER
can remove lubrication from the compressor, resulting in premature
failure. Use the liquid push-pull method or the liquid-pull method to
transfer large amounts of liquid refrigerant (virgin or dirty).
ATTENTION: You must use an agency-approved in-line filter when
recovering liquid. Contaminants (particularly from the bottom of
recovery cylinders) can enter the STINGER and become lodged in the
valve seats causing damage and resulting in leaks. We recommend
using Bacharach in-line filter P/N 07-1700 to guarantee optimum
pumping speed.

Figure 3. Standard Recovery Hose Connections
Liquid Push-Pull Recovery Operations
ATTENTION: Before attempting liquid push-pull recovery operations,
please review this page.
A scale or liquid-sight glass can be used to determine when all the liquid is
recovered. The STINGER will not pull a vacuum using the liquid push-pull
recovery operation. To finish the recovery operation, you must perform vapor
recovery operations as described on page 13.
GUIDELINES
If any of the following conditions are present in the system being evacuated, the
liquid push-pull operations may not be practical and vapor recovery operations
should be performed.
16
9
The equipment contains less than 20 lbs of refrigerant.
9
The equipment is a heat pump or other system with
refrigerant flow that would prevent you from isolating the
liquid.
9
Equipment has an accumulator between the service ports
used in the liquid recovery process.
9
Liquid refrigerant migration has occurred and the location of
the liquid is unknown.
9
The refrigerant tubing design on the equipment does not
allow for a solid column of liquid refrigerant to be formed.
2090-0217 Rev 6
STEPS
The liquid push-pull recovery method requires the use of a third hose. In addition,
a sight-glass is useful for determining when all of the liquid has been pushed out
of the system. After all the liquid has been pushed out, you will need to
reconfigure the hoses for vapor recovery since the liquid push-pull recovery
method does not pull a vacuum on the system.
1.
Remove power from the refrigerant device to be evacuated.
2.
Make proper hose connections for liquid push-pull recovery as shown in
Figure 4.
CAUTION: If the 80% tank full shutoff cord is not used, then use a
scale to monitor the refrigerant level in the recovery cylinder in order to
prevent overfilling.
CAUTION: When recovering R-410A, you must use a recovery cylinder
approved for use with R-410A. Standard recovery cylinders with
350 psi working pressures are not approved for use with R-410A.
3.
Turn the inlet and outlet valves to their “OPEN” position and the PURGE
valve to its “PURGE” position.
NOTE: The “PURGE” position bypasses the condenser, optimizing the
push-pull flow rate.
4.
Open both the vapor and liquid valves on the DOT recovery tank.
5.
Turn ON the STINGER. The compressor will begin to “pull” vapors from the
cylinder and “push” the liquid out of the system and into the recovery
cylinder.
6.
If a sight-glass is being used, you should watch it to determine when all of
the liquid has been removed from the system.
7.
The liquid push-pull recovery method will not pull a vacuum in the system.
You must turn OFF the STINGER and reconfigure the hoses for vapor
recovery operations as described on page 13.

Liquid-Pull Recovery / Charging Method
The Stinger can be used for pumping virgin refrigerant on an intermittent basis.
Unlike recovered refrigerant, virgin refrigerant does not contain oil.
CAUTION: Routinely pumping virgin refrigerant through the STINGER
can remove lubrication from the compressor, resulting in premature
failure. Use the liquid push-pull method or the liquid-pull method to
transfer large amounts of liquid refrigerant (virgin or dirty).
Figure 5. Liquid Pull Recovery/Charging Operation
2090-0217 Rev 6
19
The liquid-pull method is used to move a large amount of liquid refrigerant
without the refrigerant passing directly through the STINGER. The virgin
refrigerant is pulled directly into the system being charged. The STINGER keeps
the pressure low in the system by removing vapor. For every pound of vapor
removed, as much as 25 pounds of liquid refrigerant may be transferred. This
method can be used for either virgin refrigerant or really dirty refrigerant.
R-410A Recovery – Special Notes
R-410A is a replacement refrigerant for R-22. Its physical properties, however,
are much different than R-22. R-410A has a higher vapor pressure and is more
dense than R-22. These characteristics make recovering R-410A more difficult
by putting more of a load on the compressor. Please follow the instructions below
to ensure trouble-free R-410A recovery.
NOTE: Hose connections are the same for recovering R-410A. Connect hoses
as shown in the vapor recovery diagram below.
Under normal operating conditions the STINGER can recover R-410A just like
R-22. Under certain conditions, however, because of R-410A’s higher vapor
pressure and density, you will have to take the following precautions:
CAUTION: USE ONLY DOT RECOVERY CYLINDERS APPROVED
FOR USE WITH R-410A. Overfilling or over-pressurizing your recovery
cylinder is extremely dangerous.
WHEN RECOVERING VAPOR: If the STINGER sounds like it is overloaded
either by slowing down or by making a “knocking” sound, reduce the inlet
pressure by closing or “throttling” the inlet valve until the STINGER begins to run
normally.
WHEN RECOVERING LIQUID: If a loud knocking noise occurs, the inlet
pressure on the STINGER should be throttled back by slowly closing the inlet
valve until the knocking noise stops. This action will prevent compressor
damage.

Figure 6. Special Notes for R410-A Recovery
Purging the STINGER
The STINGER is equipped with a pump-down purge valve that allows the
technician to pump down or evacuate the STINGER before proceeding to the
next recovery operation. This procedure not only eliminates cross contamination,
but also conserves refrigerant. Follow the steps below to ensure your pumpdown operation is performed correctly.
During the purge operation the entire STINGER is pulled into a vacuum, leaving
no more than 0.1 ounce of refrigerant in the unit.
STEPS
1. After recovery operations are complete, and with the unit still powered ON
and running, make the following control valve position changes (refer to
illustration below):
x
Turn the inlet valve (blue knob left side) slowly to the “PURGE”
position (pointer DOWN position).
x
Turn the purge valve (black knob center) slowly to the “PURGE”
position (pointer DOWN position).
2. The STINGER will now start purging itself of refrigerant. Allow the unit to run
until the inlet gauge indicates that there is an adequate vacuum present in
the system.
3. Turn OFF the STINGER and then turn the outlet valve (red knob right side) to
its “CLOSED” position.
4. Close the Vapor and Liquid valves on the DOT recovery tank.
5. Remove all hoses.

DOT Recovery Cylinder Safety
WARNING! This unit is capable of over-pressurizing a DOT recovery
cylinder. Ensure that you are using the proper DOT recovery cylinder
for the refrigerant that you are recovering. R-410A is capable of
pressures exceeding 600 psi.
Typical DOT recovery cylinders are rated at 350 psi with a pressure relief set at
550 psi. These cylinders should not be used with R-410A! Only cylinders
rated at 400 psi with a pressure relief set at 600 psi should be used to recover
R-410A. Failure to use the proper cylinder can be extremely dangerous.
If your STINGER is equipped with the optional 80% tank full shutoff cord, connect
this cord to a DOT recovery cylinder’s float switch. This cord connection will
automatically shut OFF the STINGER when the recovery cylinder reaches 80%
of its liquid-full limit. It is recommended that you use this cord for added safety.
If your STINGER is not equipped with an 80% tank full shutoff cord, or if you are
using a recovery cylinder that does not have a float switch, then you must use a
scale to prevent overfilling the cylinder.
2090-0217 Rev 6
23
NOTE:
If the 80% tank full shutoff cord is present, but not being used, then a
shorting cap must be installed on the shutoff cord in order for the
STINGER to operate.

Recovery Tips
x Use the shortest hoses possible. Long hoses increase the recovery time.
Remove all restrictions in the hoses. Hoses with ball valves on the ends are
better than hoses that are self-sealing. Remove Schrader core valves when
possible from service ports.
x Always identify the refrigerant you are recovering. This will minimize cross
contamination and help you plan for the amount of refrigerant you will be
recovering.
x Always pump liquid out of the system first, and then recover the remaining
vapors. This will significantly speed up recovery rates.
x With large amounts of refrigerant, use the liquid push-pull recovery method.
This method is three times faster than recovering liquid directly. Refer to the
liquid push-pull instructions on Page 16.
x When possible, recover from both the high and low side service port on the
refrigeration system. This will speed up the recovery rate.
x Use an agency approved in-line filter (P/N 07-1700) to prevent contaminants
from entering the STINGER.
x If the STINGER has the optional 80% tank full shutoff cord installed, connect
this cord to the recovery cylinder’s float switch. If the cylinder does not have a
float switch, then be sure to install a shorting cap on the shutoff cord;
otherwise, the STINGER will not operate.
NOTE: Although using a manifold gauge set will speed up the recovery
process, a manifold gauge set is not required.
