COMPRESSOR PROTECTIVE DEVICES

Installation - Notes

1. Install the Muffler as close as possible to the compressor and before

the oil separator.

2. When mounted in a horizontal or angled position, the side with the

label must be top center to help prevent oil collection inside the Muffler.

Oil inside the Muffler will reduce the performance along with causing a

loss of oil in the compressor crankcase. Positioning the Muffler at a

slight angle so that the outlet port is below the inlet will also help

prevent oil collection. Mufflers that are mounted vertically will not collect

oil.

3. A Vibration Eliminator should be installed between the compressor and

the Muffler to prevent transmitted vibration. The Muffler should be

supported at each side to prevent discharge pipe vibration, due to the

weight of the Muffler.

4. Mufflers will only remove noise due to discharge gas pulsations. If the

noise is due to vibration, Vibration Eliminators should be added to the

discharge line and possibly the suction line.

5. A single Muffler may be installed on a common discharge line.

However, it is also acceptable to install one Muffler per compressor on

parallel racks.
