HFO refrigerants are actually unsaturated HFC refrigerants and are widely recognized as the next generation of refrigerants because of their environmental friendliness, cost-effectiveness, and great energy efficiencies.
The function of an oil reservoir, commonly known as an oil trap, is to prevent large oil slugs from forming. This is accomplished by trapping a small amount of oil in the reservoir or trap and gradually returning it to the compressor.
The compressor’s discharge line temperature is important because it is an indication of the amount of heat absorbed in the evaporator and suction line and any heat of compression generated by the compression process.
