Enter the gas in the pipe, the compressor/condenser section, and the evaporator section into the calculator to determine the Refrigerant Charge.

## Refrigerant Charge Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Refrigerant Charge.

Cr = GP + CC + E

- Where Cr is the Refrigerant Charge
- GP is the gas in the pipe
- CC is the compressor/condenser section
- E is the evaporator section

To calculate a refrigerant charge, add together the gas charge in the pipe, compressor section, and evaporator section.

## How to Calculate Refrigerant Charge?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Refrigerant Charge.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the gas in the pipe. In this example, the gas in the pipe is given as 15 .
- Next, determine the compressor/condenser section. For this problem, the compressor/condenser section is given as 14 .
- Next, determine the evaporator section. In this case, the evaporator section is found to be 13.
- Finally, calculate the Refrigerant Charge using the formula above:

Cr = GP + CC + E

Inserting the values from above yields:

Cr = 15 + 14 + 13 = 42

**Example Problem #2**

Using the same method as above, determine the variables required by the equation. For this example problem, these are as follows:

gas in the pipe = 6

compressor/condenser section = 7

evaporator section = 8

Entering these given values and solving gives:

Cr = 6 + 7 + 8 = 21** **
