Best way to remove air introduced into a condensing unit

Best way to remove air introduced into a condensing unit
The only way to do this is with a vacuum pump. Air contains moisture which is no good when in a sealed system and the only way to get rid of both is using a pump.

The system is still under a charge....5lbs r-22

All that needs to be recovered then and the system recharged. There is no way to siphon off the air and water here leaving the charge intact.

During recovery into a tank, will a filter/drier attached to recovery unit eliminate air/moisture?

It will pick up some moisture, but a filter has no effect on air at all.
