LIQUID MANAGEMENT

LIQUID REFRIGERANT RECEIVERS

High Pressure, UL

The function of a Liquid Refrigerant Receiver is to store liquid

refrigerant to provide continuous flow of liquid refrigerant to the

expansion device and to provide storage for the refrigerant charge

during system service or maintenance.

Applications

Liquid Refrigerant Receivers are installed in air conditioning and refrigeration

systems. The Receiver is installed after the Condenser in order to collect the

condensed refrigerant to allow a continuous liquid supply to the expansion

device. Liquid Receivers are also used to store the refrigerant charge while

the system is pumped down for service or maintenance.

Henry Technologies' Liquid Refrigerant Receivers are suitable for use with

HFC, HCFC and CO refrigerants and their associated oils, as well as other

2

industrial fluids non-corrosive to steel and Teflon.

Materials of Construction

The shell and caps are made of steel. The SAE flare connection, Rotalock

Valves, and mounting studs where applicable are made of plated steel.

Mounting legs where applicable are made of steel.

Technical Specifications

Maximum working pressure = 700 PSI (48.3 Bar)

Allowable operating temperature = 0°F to +250°F (-18°C to +121°C)

Henry Technologies' Liquid Refrigerant Receivers are UL and C-UL Listed by

Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. Additionally, Liquid Receivers are designed

and registered for use in Canada. Please contact Technical Support at

1-800-627-5148 for CRN details and list of approved provinces and

territories.

Selection Guidelines

Receiver storage capacities are based on the liquid occupying no more than

90% of the internal volume when the temperature of the refrigerant is 90°F

(32°C) per ASHRAE Standard 15-78. Receivers should be selected based

on the operating charge for all system components, including the liquid lines.

It is usual to add a small percentage to cover the refrigerant in long runs of

suction and discharge lines, etc. It is essential that the maximum operating

charge be determined, e.g., winter charge in air cooled condenser having

flooded head pressure control, this being much greater than the normal

summer charge.

Installation - Notes

1. Install the Liquid Refrigerant Receiver after the Condenser and before

the Liquid Line Filter-Drier.

2. An 1/8 NPT Fusible Plug is included on select models to protect the

vessel from over-pressure due to excessive heat. Replace the Fusible

Plug immediately if the stamped temperature rating is exceeded.
