AC Condenser

I need to install a new AC Condenser in my car. Iwas told that after I do that the system need to be evacuated. Can somebody tell me what this means.
Also can I get away with putting in a used condenser.Do I need to do anything to the condenser before I install it.

No, I would never put a used condenser in. It can have all kind of trash and contaminants that will destroy your system.
To evacuate means to put the system under 29in of vacuum for at least 30 minutes to boil away all moisture and remove all air in the system before recharging.
