We have added to our three-week course and our single week basic refrigeration course the basics of using Lokring to repair refrigerators.
Starting with our May 2018 three-week course, we are officially offering Lokring training during our refrigeration sealed system lab sessions. Over the last year, we have been practicing and mastering the method of using the Lokring tool in appliance repair. Moving forward, every student who wants to train using Lokring during a sealed system lab will get the opportunity. We have added various fittings and additional hand tools for students to use.
This will be in addition to learning how to braze and solder during our refrigeration sealed system lab. So as a student, you can now choose the primary method to focus on whether it’s brazing, soldering, or Lokring. Lokring is slowly becoming the necessary tool for sealed system repair due to the upcoming change of R134a refrigerant to the new, flammable, R600a.
