The service/calibration of a typical Refrigerant Management Station can be quite a complex task when done correctly, many machines now require codes to access hidden service and calibration menus without these codes it is impossible to service/calibrate a machine correctly, also many machines are now also requiring filter codes to ensure dealer standards are met particularly for VAG Mercedes and BMW approved equipment.
A standard service/calibration typically would consist of the following, depending on make/model of the machine being serviced.
Internal and external inspection of equipment.
Check operation and performance.
Check the purity of refrigerant if suspected to be contaminated, purge off excessive air from ISV.
