• The accumulator should not be sized for less than 50% of the total system charge
  • Welded design for higher strength
  • Commercial refrigeration


Description

Suction line accumulators are designed to act as a temporary holding vessel between the outlet of the evaporator and the inlet of the compressor. During flood back conditions, the accumulator traps the liquid charge and allows it to be evaporated and fed to the compressor at a controlled rate. The internal U-tube includes an orifice, which ensures proper metering of the oil back to the compressor.

Size the accumulator for minimum pressure drop. The minimum capacity is the lowest amount that will ensure proper oil return.

Basic specifications

  • The accumulator should not be sized for less than 50% of the total system charge
  • Accumulator capacities below are rated at a 1 psig drop, which facilitates proper oil return.
