Reusing reclaimed refrigerant

This is my first post here so hello all!


A friend and I in Denver were talking about this and were not too sure of the right answer:


Lets say you have a small leak to fix in a 20 ton condensing unit. The customer wants to keep the 60 lbs of refrigerant to save money.


I know you can reclaim it (MO99 btw), but can you reuse it? And if you can, how would you reintroduce it to the system? Would you have to flip the recovery tank over (to charge as a liquid) as you normally would in the charging process? We’ve never actually done it and were curious.


Thanks for any help!
