I got screwed when I tried to recover what I thought was R22 yesterday. Tested if for acid (it was) then proceeded to let it into a recovery tank. After pressures equalized I turned the pump switch on and it sent flame out and then smoke. Turned it off but too late. The gas was a flammable substitute for R22. I tested it with a lighter and it burned real good. I called up an HVAC 24-hour emergency service they replaced the motor. To say the least I'm pissed. The homeowner says he has only lived there a year and never had the old unit serviced. I'm upset, to say the least. Will check the gas for flammability if not sure for now on. Beware all owners of recovery units.

Thank you very much.
