    Good information for the noitall tech… Rotary is confused with the scroll.
    I have had bad/sticky scroll check valves out of the box..sometimes after a few cycles, the hot oil and vapor mix frees the valve but life expectancy is shorter than factory part..being a former Quality Control tech in save costs, manufacturers may send an item back to a 'requalify' process that may change pumping characteristics or capacity by a machining a mating surface or replace the electric motor, but still be within useable tolerances.
    Keep up the fine videos Bryon..I share to the new guys coming in as the seniors leave the work force.

    Point to note. Not all compressors have a "built-in" (discharge) check valve. (E.g. Danfoss, Mitsubishi)
    Many systems have them installed externally on the discharge line.
    So some scrolls truly have no valves of any kind.

    I am suspecting that when you charge a copeland scroll with liquid through high side while under vacuum causes internal damage with the result being equalized pressure while running….If so why?
