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.
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
industrial fluids non-corrosive to steel and Teflon.
SAE flare inlet connections

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.
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

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
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.
