COMPRESSOR PROTECTIVE DEVICES

The function of an Oil Reservoir is to provide a holding charge of

oil, as part of a Low Pressure Oil Management System.

Applications

The standard range of reservoirs is suitable for use with HCFC and HFC

refrigerants, and their associated oils, as well as other industrial fluids non-

corrosive to steel, copper and Teflon.

The amount of oil circulating in a system varies depending on the operating

conditions. The Oil Reservoir caters to these fluctuations by providing

additional storage capacity. Rotalock Valves are supplied with each reservoir

to facilitate easy oil fill and drain. A connection is provided at the top of the

unit for fitting a Reservoir Pressure Valve. Depending on size, models are

provided with either two or three sight glasses for visual indication of oil level.

Technical Specifications

Maximum working pressure = 450 PSI (31 Bar)

Allowable operating temperature = +15°F to +250°F (-10°C to +121°C)

Henry Technologies’ Oil Reservoirs are UL and C-UL Listed by Underwriters

Laboratories, Inc. Additionally, Oil Reservoirs 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.

Materials of Construction

The shell, end caps and fitting connections are made from carbon steel.

OIL RESERVOIRS

Selection Guidelines

Larger systems or compressors that discharge more oil should use a 4 gallon

reservoir. It is possible to pipe two identical reservoirs in parallel to increase

the holding capacity. The oil lines attach to the valves at the top and bottom

should be teed together. Selecting a size depends on customer preference.

Installation - Notes

Full instructions are given in the Oil Level Control Manual, included with each

reservoir.
