Pressure / Enthalpy Diagram Example
This article was written by my buddy and Canadian Supertech Tim Tanguay. Thanks, Tim! This P/E chart shows R410a at 100°F saturated condensing temp, 10°F SC, 40°F saturated suction temp, 20°F SH at the compressor. The green highlighted thumb shape is the saturation zone. Everything that occurs in the saturation zone is a latent (change […]

Accumulator & Burnout Considerations
The suction line accumulator is designed to keep liquid refrigerant from entering the compressor while still allowing for oil return. The trouble is that if the oil return port/screen clogs, the accumulator can fill with oil and actually cause the compressor to fail. In addition to that, it can hold contaminated oil in a burnout. […]

Prevent Refrigerant Migration
Refrigerant migration is a natural process that occurs during the off-cycle. The refrigerants have an affinity for oil and seek out the lowest-pressure areas, so it only makes sense that some refrigerant would be drawn to the compressor crankcase and may condense there. When the refrigerants condense, they saturate the oil. As a result, refrigerant […]
