the older systems do indeed run on r12 , which is banned. the new gas is r134a which needs polyoester oil to work correctly (retro fitting is possible), there is an alternative to r12 , theres plenty of drop in r12 replacments. normal components of an a/c system is , compressor , radiator with combined condensr , liquid receiver and evaporator . some systems have a suction accumaltor to `boil' off the returnig saturated vapour before it hits the compressor and liquid slugs the reeds. ade ( 21 yrs c+g refrigeration engineer.)
